Everyone should check out the Driskill while in Austin. It's a great historic building and offers a good photo op. The bar is nice and the restaurant serves up some very good dishes.
See a little history in Austin. Old brothel has stood up well over the years. You can stroll the building and see where LBJ waited to hear election results. Do eat at the restaurant. Service is very good, and the food is well above average.

The dining room at the Driskill is beautiful - high ceilings, leather booths, a pianist playing next door. We stopped in for a late lunch and were not disappointed. The soup and salad combo was delicious. The pastries on display, although I didn't try one, looked incredible!
If you are visiting Austin, check out the historic Driskill Hotel. It has a rich history and the lobby is full of architectural marvels. Visit the bar with a wood-ornamented ceiling and animal busts. I visited the hotel as a part of the walking tour which leaves from the Capitol steps (inquire with the visitor's center).
We love the bar here. Great service. Great drinks. Great atmosphere. Very traditional and elegant service. It's a great way to start the evening or end it for that matter. You can relax, enjoy and spend time getting to know one another again!
