We Austinites love our caffeine, socializing, and our neighborhoods. We also love sharing these experiences with friends and families. Brentwood Social House has filled a much-needed niche for a family-friendly, quality-driven coffee house with a comfortable, cozy and inviting atmosphere. In refocusing our Why, we have recognized how important a space for families and kids has been and we have reaffirmed our commitment to making Brentwood Social House a community space for all ages.

We recently learned that in order to have outdoor seating in the backyard area of Brentwood Social House, we would need more parking spaces than we currently have. In order to comply with City Code, we have removed the picnic tables.

Taking this cue as an opportunity to make Brentwood Social House an even more family-friendly (read: kid-friendly!) environment, we would LOVE to construct a playscape in the backyard area.  In an effort to stay code compliant, we have confirmed with the City that we are able to build the playscape and stay within code.

After extensive research, we are working with Playwood Custom Designed Play Structures for our playscape. They have created a custom play structure that fits our space, has many features for kids of all ages, and meets and exceeds all state and federal safety guidelines. They have a reputation for quality and safety, are rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau, and are dedicated to designing the safest playground equipment available.

Great news! With your generous support combined with our own contribution, we have been able to purchase the ship playscape! We have raised enough funds to purchase, relocate, and refurbish the playscape. The relocation and refurbishing will take place in the next few weeks.

We have moved the mulching and perimeter building to Phase 2. We are continuing fund-raising and hope to move forward with the second phase as soon as possible.

Thank you again for supporting our us and our vision!
