Awesome old hotel/brothel (we were told both) with a great cafe. Pastries and Cheese soup are not to be missed.Make sure you walk around the lobbies both up and down.

We spent 2 hours to walk around and took pictures. Did not have time to stay for music. Will definitely come back here on our next trip to Austin.

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!

Nestled in the middle of 6th street, the Driskill is a change of pace, filled with class and a great happy hour! Try the flavored popcorn!

Who doesn't love a hotel bar? Saddle on up to the round-ish bar in the back for a great cocktail. Live music is almost always on tap (this is Austin, after all...). The lounge is large, plenty of seating and super friendly staff. Awesome western décor. Dripping with charming history.
