New Years Eve 2012-2013 in Austin- Need suggestions!

A group of us are looking to spend NYE in Austin this year and have had little luck on suggestions - there are so many places advertising parties for that night, but no good reviews on what has been good in the past. We are looking for something under $150 that would be good for 2 couples in their late 20's/early 30's. Any suggestions from ppl that have had good experiences in Austin for NYE before!? Thanks!

Check out the Hilton Hotel, Austin Airport. They have a NYE Gala, with 4 awesome bands! Book a room. Promise you will NOT be disappointed! Went last yr w/hubby and friends, had a BLAST!

I haven't been but I've heard good reports on the Driskill Hotel New Year's Eve party. It would be right in the middle of all the downtown action.

Before the Driskill you could check out the alcohol free city of Austin party on Lady Bird Lake.

Thanks yankee, I was looking online for the Driskill ad but had no luck, do you know anyone that is attending this year?

Any other suggestions on places to look into before we book? We were hoping to maybe find a themed party - like a Casino night or a Snow theme we a good crowd our age.

Also Lucky's for NYE and you might also try Lustre Pearl. Pretty nice party, great band booked for NYE and fabulous food. Just a couple of thoughts.

Where can I find info on the Driskill hotel party? I usually am pretty good at finding info on the net but having a hard time with this one! Thanks!
