Located at 5012 E. 7 St., the space — developed by a team of hospitality experts from across Austin — serves as a comprehensive community hub offering cocktails, coffee, food, and beer, with a fun twist. The all-day hangout includes a swimming pool, vibey clubhouse ideal for remote workers, an expansive patio, and more, all elevating this Eastside spot.

“We created Cabana Club to be a place for anyone, anytime, any reason,” says Scott Withers, co-owner of Cabana Club. “We’re approachable to the entire Austin community; all are welcome at our club. Guests can start the day with a cold brew and their laptop and end with a dip in the pool and an ice-cold beverage, all in one spot.”

Keep cool in the pool

Open just in time for summer, Cabana Club features a pool for guests 21 and older, with nine cabanas and umbrella seating options available by reservation or on a first-come, first-served basis. The urban oasis offers five-star service at an approachable price. Poolside lounging includes priority service from the outdoor bar, specialty cocktails, towels, and more.

Expansive patio offers shade and fans

In addition to a gorgeous cooled pool, the outdoor space includes an expansive patio with ample seating covered by a 2,500-square-foot retractable pergola. Texas weather doesn’t stand a chance against the shade, fans, and heaters available throughout each season. The indoor space has additional seating and a bar with 20 different beverages on tap. Tap beverages include local beers, the popular Progress Coffee espresso martini, and rotating single-serving and large-format cocktails.

“We noticed an unmet demand in the Austin hospitality scene for a venue that can easily transition from day to night, becoming more than just a quick stop through the day. With Cabana Club, we’ve designed a venue where Austinites can spend the entire day and night and still want to come back time and time again,” says Matthew Napolilli, co-owner of Cabana Club.

Coffee, cocktails, food trucks and more

Cabana Club goes beyond the typical coffee bar, providing a place that easily adapts from day to night and indoor to outdoor fun. The concept acts as a truly transitional space, with morning coffee service by Austin staple Progress Coffee and full bar offerings all day long. The space also features a walk-up food window offering breakfast and lunch service to eastsiders from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. The backyard space offers food from three local trailers, including a new concept by the Pueblo Viejo group.
