I’ll have an espresso martini and a bottle of sunscreen, please.

Boozy drinks aren’t the only bodies of water in ATX bars.

New poolside bars launched in Austin this summer, while other watering holes are partnering with Cowboy Pools to provide pop-up pools during the hottest months of the year.

Here are a few spots where you can have a sip + make a splash:

Kitty Cohen’s, 2211 Webberville Rd., Ste. #3548 | This ATX establishment had a pool before it was trendy. Situated in the center of its Palm Springs-inspired outdoor patio, the shallow pool is perfect for sitting on the edge with a frozen cocktail in-hand.

Reservations for the Cowboy Pool at Skinny’s Off Track Bar go for $10 per hour, and up to eight people can swim.

Skinny’s Off Track Bar, 1806 E. 12th St. | Austinites can go “Skinny’s Dipping” this summer in an on-site Cowboy Pool. $10 reservations are required for one hour of swimming, but there is a free period from 4-6 p.m.

Swim Club, 650 E. 10th St. | A reservation at the American restaurant in Downright Austin grants you access to the Downtown pool, which is decked out in pink hues and retro decor. You can also snag pool admission via ResortPass.

Cabana Club, 5012 E. 7th St. | The all-day coffee shop, restaurant, and bar invites remote workers to break out their laptops in its spacious clubhouse. Visitors can cool off from the workday in its pool on the patio.

RADIO/EAST, 3504 Montopolis Dr. | Here’s another Cowboy Pools collaboration for you: enjoy a frozen cocktail in the stock tank pool on the patio of the cafe, bar, and music venue. Plus, you don’t need a reservation to take a swim this summer.
