The Perfect After-Work Shopping Trip

Here in Austin’s New Downtown, there’s plenty to keep you busy outside of work. In a place as diverse as the Third + Shoal neighborhood, you’ll find both local boutiques and national designers, selling everything from custom-fitted suits to bike gear. Not to mention the charming cafes, bars and coffee shops around nearly every corner.

Here’s a sneak peak at all the stops you won’t want to miss around the office.

Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop

Have a sick day with a sweet bike rental from this Austin cycling institution. Bike culture is big in this town, so it makes sense there would be a renowned bike shop located at the heart of the city – the perfect place to start your ride. Shop for gear or rent a bike and take a spin around Ladybird Lake.

Juan Pelota Cafe

After your ride, step off the bike trail and pop in line at Mellow Johnny’s sister coffee shop. Craft cups of joe and a sunny patio make this a great spot to breeze through work or wake up in the morning. Come for the coffee, stay for the latte art that reminds you to  “have fun” in foam letters.


This exclusive boutique for guys specializes in office looks and trendy casual apparel. Get suits and statement pieces fitted in person for the ultimate convenience hack. You’ll want to wear these work clothes through the weekend.

Rae Cosmetics

Update your look with healthy skin-friendly mineral makeup, made locally by Rae Cosmetics. All of the primers, powders and foundations are crafted to stay fresh through the intense heat and humidity of Texas summers, so you can stay cool in the board room and on the running trail.

Royal Blue Grocers

This European-like urban market is a one-stop-shop for sophisticated office catering, breakfast or lunch to-go and everything in between. Crusty bread, wine and good cheese, and beautifully simple sandwiches and salads are all waiting for you. Everything is photo-worthy against the backdrop of bright blue and white tiled floors, marble countertops and stunning floral arrangements.

Surrounded by so much shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor living, Third + Shoal is the perfect place to work and play for the lifestyle you want. Snag your dream office in our brand new high-rise, opening soon. Visit to learn more.
