Located in the heart of Austin, Texas, the LINE has a front row seat to all the communities that make this city…this city. Live music. Creative cinema. Locally-grown produce. Town Lake. We are a hotel that reflects its community, which is why we’ve partnered with organizations that seek to further enhance the culture and well-being of the community itself.
Your stay has impact: Big Medium works to provide affordable studio space for artists, and partners with various organizations in Texas to help foster the arts and facilitate an inclusive cultural dialogue between artists and their communities.
We also collaborate with Big Medium on our LINE Austin Artist Residency, a six-week opportunity for local artists to experiment and create in a new environment. While in residence, the artists are encouraged to share their work and process, become involved with the hotel, its guests, and the local arts community. The LINE Hotel Austin’s partnership with Big Medium expands into a statewide search for artistic talent in 2020.

As the city of Austin continues to grow, so has the use of the shared resource that is Butler Trail. The LINE Austin is committed to supporting The Trail Foundation (TTF), an organization working to ensure everyone’s safety by widening the Trail to support the ever-growing number of pedestrians, runners, and bicyclists.
The SIMS Foundation provides Austin’s music community with a full array of mental health and substance abuse recovery services at little to no cost. The LINE Austin is proud to integrate their work into our LINE Studio Sessions, during which SIMS representatives discuss community resources and provide services to encourage improved self-care practices amongst the local artistic community.

Austin mutual aid
We are grateful to live in a community that takes care. In the wake of the Texas power and water crisis, Austinites and local aid organizations mobilized immediately to provide humanitarian aid to their neighbors in a time of need. Austin Mutual Aid has been at the forefront of the effort to support our housed and unhoused neighbors during this crisis and every day, providing food, water and critical supplies to those in need.
Thank you to everyone who came out March 1-8 to have a cocktail for community – we raised over $7300 for the amazing local org Austin Mutual Aid.
Special thanks to our partners Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Wild Turkey Longbranch Bourbon and Canteen Spritis for their support.
We are proud to announce that the Beyond The Rainbow cocktail is sold out, with over $2000 raised collectively for Out Youth. Thank you to all who came an enjoyed this special cocktail in support of an amazing local organization, and thank you to our awesome partners at Wild Turkey Longbranch!

Wild Turkey Longbranch is a collaboration between Wild Turkey’s creative director Matthew McConaughey and master distiller Eddie Russell. Inspired by McConaughey’s Kentucky and Texas roots, this rare small-batch Kentucky bourbon is refined with Texas Mesquite and oak charcoals – a unique method that deepens the flavor and complexity of the whiskey. “Longbranch, in its simplest form, is an extended hand, inviting a friend into your family,” says McConaughey.
