UP TO TEXAS

For more reasons than we can count, Austin has captured our hearts, and we can’t wait to share the love. The soulful folk rock of the late Townes Van Zandt has been an inspiration to Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Norah Jones, Garth Brooks, and scores of other musicians in Van Zandt’s native Texas and beyond. His reach has now extended to design—in the form of the Hotel Van Zandt on the shores of Austin’s Lady Bird Lake. As the self-proclaimed Live Music Capital of the World, the booming intersection of hipsters and honkytonks, techies and tequila, Austin had obvious attractions for the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group, a company that prides itself on letting local ethos drive a design. for Kimpton, which is also wildly independent with an eclectic mix of our own,” creative director Ave Bradley says.


The hotel’s design showcases work by the talented Mark Zeff, who has dreamed up some of the world’s top boutique hotels and restaurants. Zeff explains that this particular extends beyond the theme of “urban cowboys,” instead encompassing a culture that boasts “a great history of elegance and Texas gentry.” Born in South Africa and based in New York, Mark Zeff sampled barbecue, bought cowboy boots, a classic pair of Luccheses, and listened to music in some of the city’s 200 venues, offering everything from Western swing to alt rock, as part of his reconnaissance. “Van Zandt’s music is very poetic,” Zeff says. “It speaks of freedom.” That’s certainly something that runs in the family. An ancestor, Isaac Van Zandt, was a founding father of the short-lived

Republic of Texas, and Van Zandt County, near Dallas, is also called the Free State of Van Zandt because of a rebellious streak in the citizens, who have twice attempted to secede from the rest of Texas. Zeff looked to the Austin music scene to lay down the baseline for the hotel. His homage plays out in the lobby lounge with an installation of exuberant birds, made from vinyl records, that as curated collections of found objects such as vintage radios and microphones. Many of


DelightFULL. The gig posters in the 319 guest in the ’60’s and ’70’s, when Van Zandt made Blue, symbolically thrums through the color palette as a moody teal. Riffs on blue are found everywhere from the lounge’s tufted velvetcovered sofas and chairs to the guest rooms, where the wall covering evokes dreamy watercolor brushstrokes. The rakish streak in the design suits the city motto, Keep Austin Weird, as well as Kimpton’s MO. “We like to have fun with our hotels, and we’re always looking to do that in a smart and disciplined way,” Bradley says. As an antidote to the cliché of the walnut-paneled library, Zeff styled an events space as a library but gave it high-gloss peacock-blue walls and alcove shelving lined with red-covered books, all about Texas or by Texas authors. “We freaked out the faux library,” he says with satisfaction. neighborhood, the Rainey Street Historic District, a pocket of bars and restaurants in strippeddown bungalows. On early visits, Zeff noticed a wild guinea fowl, affectionately known to locals as Geraldine, roaming the streets. The hotel restaurant is now called Geraldine’s, complete with a guinea fowl for a logo. Other characters are represented in artwork by Van Zandt’s son JT, who creates his images by boring holes in slabs of wood. There are two portraits of Van Zandt, senior; one of a stern-looking Comanche chief; and another of a 19th-century boy with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. A photograph of Van Zandt’s friend Willie Nelson hangs just outside the restaurant. Inside, the arched ceiling joists strung with marqueeesque lights suggest the magical setting of a Texas dance hall, and live music is played every night. It’s not hard to imagine Van Zandt himself onstage.
