In the state where everything is bigger, Austin is no exception, nor are its cars, its barbecue lines or its bats. Those who associate Austin with America’s Old Southern tradition are mistaken: Austin is the new capital of cool. Follow us through the pretty streets of the rightfully named “Live Music Capital of the World”.
True Food Kitchen
The first line on their website reads: “You don’t have to be a die-hard Yogi to dine at True Food Kitchen” . You got it, we’re talking, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free food here. And there is nothing pretentious or weird on the menu. Just real, heartily good food to feed your body and your soul. A nice break between two copious, fat-filled barbecues!
The Deck at Hotel Van Zandt
Enjoy the last lovely rays of Indian summer at the top of Hotel Van Zandt. The view over Lady Bird Lake paired with a nice Chandon cocktail will make you forget the hustle and bustle of the city. You may even be tempted by a dip in the pool.
If you’re craving Southern-style food and a cosy, comforting atmosphere, Stella San Jac is the perfect place to go! Located at the ground floor of the Westin Downtown, Stella opened on July 16th and features a full bar with wines, locally crafted beers and handmade cocktails, an open kitchen and, of course, a live music lounge. The menu will ravish foodies looking for ample food and contemporary design.
Lakeway Resort and Spa
Who hasn’t dreamt of owing a lakeside cabin for a romantic getaway? We cannot offer you an authentic cabin, but for a romantic getaway we recommend that you book a room at the Lakeway Resort. Their rustic, yet sophisticated restaurant will make you feel like time has stopped for a while. A breathtaking view, a delicious, comforting dinner and a full day at the Spa, does it get any better than that? We don’t think so.
