Azul Rooftop

Azul almost feels like an afterthought. After making your way up to the 20th floor of The Westin in Downtown Austin, you’ll probably see a sign for the fitness center before you see a small arrow pointing towards the pool and bar. But once you make your way out onto the roof, it feels more like the hotel actually saved this small, prime corner of the rooftop for its most prized possession—Azul, a rooftop bar open in the late afternoons and evenings with the “highest view of Downtown” in the whole city. The entire space is lined by a see-through glass railing that might cause a bit of uneasiness as you look down onto the tiny cars 20 stories below—just grab a seat by one of the faux-fire pits, order a margarita, and try not to get splashed by the hotel guests swimming in the pool just a few feet away. Or buy a day pass to the pool and do the splashing yourself.
