Austin, TX Edition: The Driskill

The DriskillAustin is a really cool city and has a pretty vibrant downtown life. One place in particular that my friend Julia was set on trying was The Driskill, a historic hotel with incredible bar.

The DriskillWe stopped in for a drink and a small bite. The space is sprawling and comfy. Elegant - save for maybe some of the patrons on this evening.

Relax and unwind at the Driskill Bar, with a feel that is Texan through and through. From the décor to the delectable drink menu, our bar is the best spot to mingle with friends and relax amid your Austin explorations. Take a seat in one of the cozy nooks, surrounded by authentic artwork, or settle into a leather sofa. Choose from a lengthy list of cocktails, wines, and beers, and stop by for the lively happy hour scene. Throughout the month, the Driskill Bar offers live music, featuring jazz, folk, country, and more via its curated calendar. For a fun-filled evening in Austin, the Driskill Bar is the place to be.

Because it said it was the "Official Cocktail of Austin," I ordered The Batini: Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Hibiscus & Ginger Simple Syrup, Agave Sweet & Sour.

The DriskillYou can call me a fan of The Batini. Sweet, but not too sweet. Beautiful and refreshing.

The DriskillWe also split a red velvet cupcake that was simply to die for. It was moist, perfectly whipped frosting and just delish.

The DriskillThis is a lovely place for a drink, and some Grade A people watching.
