Take a Dip
With the temperature on its way to triple digits, finding a pool has become priority No. 1. Starting June 23, Hotel Lumen helps solve the problem when it opens its courtyard pool to the public on Sundays.
The boutique hotel, located across the street from SMU, welcomes swimmers of all ages from noon-6 pm. Singles and parents can indulge in poolside cocktails and Front Room specialties such as country ham biscuit bites, burgers, and fish tacos with cilantro queso fresco, while the kiddos stay busy with water toys.
Entrance to this urban oasis is $8 per person, and that includes valet parking, water, lemonade and passed poolside snacks. (Entry is complimentary for hotel guests, of course). Enjoy cocktail service right from your chaise lounge.
Cabanas are also available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Public access to the Hotel Lumen pool ends August 18.
