A fresh take on Austin’s bohemian spirit, this boutique bolthole is a must-visit for design lovers and exudes a clean, generous, and thoroughly modern spirit. Set in the heart of the South Congress district, it’s the better base camp for your creative adventures.
Picture an exterior dynamically clad in slate-like concrete, layered parallel to the sloped street. Through this façade, windows and balconies protrude offering hints of the world within. While the outside is intriguing and impressive, the interior of Kimber Modern combines high design with inviting warmth. The common space is filled with beautifully furniture: go ahead and sink into an Arne Jacobson egg chair, set beside an Eames surfboard coffee table. Check-in is 100% virtual and handled before you arrive, so it is socially distanced and hassle-free: There’s no key to hold on to. Rather, help yourself to a complimentary wine or self-serve European coffee from the beverage bar and turn your attention to the gallery-like walls. You’ll see works by prominent local artists Martha Gannon, Margo Sawyer and Valerie Fowler. You can feel sure nothing was overlooked in your minimal and modern room when you venture in—details matter here.
South Congress Avenue is the chic heart of South Austin. The city’s most hip and sophisticated neighborhood rewards exploration. Stroll down the main drag any time of day, taking in the performers and street art; pop into STAG Provisions, Monkey See, Monkey Do gift shop, and Limbo Jewelry; stop by Amy’s Ice Cream for a hot fudge sundae; enjoy an Italian dinner at Vespaio. When midnight strikes, you’ll probably find yourself rocking out at the granddaddy of live music venues, The Continental Club.
