Congress’ second pocket patio, located at 8th Street, transformed four angled parking spaces into a dynamic patio space.
The design features two separate patios connected by movable seating on the tree island. The south patio has elevated countertop seating along its edge with a large raised planter, and movable cafe tables and chairs. The north patio includes several custom built in table tops with a bench integrated into a planter. The first Austin pocket patio, adjacent to Royal Blue Grocery near 6th Street and Congress Avenue has experienced a great deal of success and paved the way for the City of Austin’s policy change, making 804 possible.
