It's spring—time to shed those winter layers and head out into the sunshine! What better place to spend time outside than at a Southwest Porch?
Southwest has created outdoor spaces in three of our cities: New York City, Dallas, and most recently, Atlanta. The Porches provide a comfortable, relaxing place for both locals and tourists alike to enjoy, sometimes in the midst of a bustling city. Not only that, our Southwest Porches host events such as concerts, executive chats, game nights, and more for the public to enjoy. We felt it only appropriate to hold an Opening Event at each of our Porches to celebrate not only being open to the public, but also for the season!
On April 5, the Southwest Porch at Park Tavern in Atlanta threw open its screen door and enjoyed some Sweet Tea … that is the cool sounds and musical stylings of Ed Roland and the Sweet Tea Project. More than 150 people enjoyed this free concert, along with raffle prizes and discounted drinks under the stars in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. This is but the first of many events that will take place on the Southwest Porch. Next up, is a Mother’s Day’s Brunch on May 12. If you’re in Atlanta, you can treat Mom to awesome food at an amazing place!
The Southwest Porch at Strauss Square is nestled in the heart of the Dallas Arts District. Situated behind the Winspear Opera House, the Southwest Porch at Strauss Square is open for every performance at Strauss Square and during special events at the Winspear Opera House. In addition to comfortable lounge seating with a great view, the Southwest Porch at Strauss Square offers free ping pong, free WiFi, unique outdoor cuisine from Wolfgang Puck’s onsite grill, specialty cocktails created by Wolfgang Puck, and a signature Southwest Brew, Franconian Wheat, created by Franconia Brewing Company of McKinney, TX. Already this spring, the Performing Arts Center has held performances from artists such as Pat Benatar and Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy. Tickets for all events can be found here: http://www.attpac.org/.
There will be many more events to come at The Southwest Porch at Bryant Park—we have a full lineup this year, which includes a different Southwest Airlines city featured each month! Next time you travel to the Big Apple, we hope you’ll stop by!
