Gilded Age Splendor - And Lighting

The Driskill Hotel is down the road from the Texas State House (supposedly because it housed a 19th. century Gentleman's Club patronized by cattle barons). The building was saved from destruction and lovingly restored to its Victorian splendor, which unfortunately, despite the modern lighting still is a little dim, almost by gaslight. It is a truly remarkable building just to wander around with a lot of atmosphere and romance. The bar upstairs and the 1806 cafe are both lovely to look at and spend some time in. The hotel is conveniently located if you are exploring Austin by foot or car. It's a short walk to all of the live music, clubs and restaurants you could possibly want to see. I would definitely stay there again if I return to Austin.

Driskill Grill Restaurant Review

The combination of romantic lighting, formal table settings, fresh flowers and professional service makes us feel like we've stepped back in time at this elegant restaurant. À la carte selections are available (salmon charcuterie, prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin), but we recommend the five- or seven-course tasting menus. (Christian Apetz is the current executive chef.) Sommelier-guided wine...

Cute Victorian style cafe inside the hotel. Waffle and avocado toast was great! Good coffee. Service was a little slow but friendly. Jam and bakery items definitely fresh and flavorful.
