The Penthouse & Overlook

305 E. Huntland Drive, Austin, TX 78752

Brand New View in Central Austin

With commanding views of central Austin from its fifth-floor perch, The Penthouse @ Austin Highland offers freshly renovated event space with a simple, modern sensibility. The Penthouse unfolds as guests step off the elevator, with natural light flooding in from an entire wall of west-facing windows and one of the city’s largest skylights. The brand new 1500 square foot Overlook balcony offers a separate activity zone perfect for drinks and networking. It also features an open-concept kitchen and boardroom with retractable glass walls opening into the main space.  Separate areas are available for seminar space, breakout rooms, green rooms, or prep areas as needed for larger or more complex events.

Don’t Take Our Word for It

“I have booked two different meetings here and both have been phenomenal experiences! We also hosted our company holiday luncheon here and used the kitchen space, booths and lounge area. Not only was it beautifully decorated, but it was clean and cozy. We will definitely be renting spaces here again soon.” -Lindsey C.
