Quick FAQs

Is It Free?

Yes you need to RSVP but entry is not guaranteed due to fire codes and our capacity is 175 so come early if you really want to see a particular panel/performance.

 

Is there parking?

We highly recommend not driving.

 

Can I bring a bag?

No. Also our space is weapon free despite Texas open carry laws

According to the Texas State Law Library, Texas law limits the carrying of firearms at any place that primarily sells alcohol. This applies to bars as well as restaurants that serve alcohol.

What is the address of the South Asian House?

The South Asian House will take place at fourth + co, at 208 w 4th st unit d, austin, tx 78701.

Luxurious Hotel Room

Hotel Discount for South Asian House Attendees Only until 2/15

The dates are from March 9th - 14th and anyone can block those dates with our code.

In case anyone wants to stay for longer, SAH can have the hotel adjust it accordingly. 

This hotel is half a block away from the train station on Kramer and a 10-minute walk from The Domain, 5 minutes from a Walgreens, right across a brewery, and an 8-minute walk to coffee shops and restaurants, and a gym. It is between both Mopac and I-35 so close to both highways to get to Downtown in case using rideshare or driving. With the daily rising prices in hotels, this amount is locked until February 15th for South Asian House guests.
