Pros: Great Beer Selection, Great Coffee, Amazing Atmosphere, Events 7 nights a week at the Ballroom Side. Just a must when in Austin visiting or if your luckily enough to live in Austin
Cons: Service could improve, But really no big deal when your just having such amazing time here!
Comments: Spider House has an intimate, electric interior, excellent 24 draft beers and mixed Cocktail drink selections, and one of the most unique, fun outside areas in Austin ,which is no easy task!. I just love this place. Always an interesting crowd, delicious coffee, and a wonderful building... So much fun ..
Review for Sherlocks Pub wrote by Anthony
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating1
Pros: North Austin, live music, plenty of seating
Cons: North Austin if you live south
Comments: Great Live Music venue. They have 3 rooms. One is a video game, darts, and billiards room. The second room is lounge/restaurant room. Although you can eat in any room, this one has a large bar, booths and tables without the live music playing which promotes a better atmosphere for ..
Review for Austin Zoo wrote by Sean
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Pros: Lots of animals, in the Hill Country so great views, train ride
Cons: There was a lack of sanitizer throughout the park, not in Austin so it is a bit of a drive, the store has very little "Austin Zoo" souvenirs, just generic animal/zoo stuff.
Comments: Great zoo, lots of animals. I have been to the zoo during the day as well as the during Halloween at night. Both were great times and the train around the zoo is well worth it. Plan for the day and pack a meal. The zoo ..
Review for Bats Underneath Congress Bridge wrote by Scott
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: The bats are a free attraction to see when visiting Austin.
Cons: The smell on the bridge can be disturbing.
Comments: The Bats under Congress Bridge are an experience you must check out! Seriously a sight to see when visiting Austin. When the sun goes down, you see hundreds of thousands of bats taking flight and flying into the city skyline. You can also experience it by boat ..
Review for Maggie Mae's wrote by Scott
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: The rooftop bar is by far the best feature about Maggie Mae's but the great crowd, the entertainment and drink specials also make this one of Austin's best bars.
Cons: Parking to go out on 6th Street can be a drag sometimes so just plan ahead or don't drive.
Comments: Maggie Mae's is by far one of Austin's best bars. The multi level and multi room bar features a British Pub, multiple stages for live music, courtyard, club room and best of all, the rooftop deck overlooking 6th Street and Austin's skyline. The crowd is young but diverse ..
Review for Black's Barbecue wrote by Sean
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: Food, service, and downtown Lockhart location is close to shopping and historic sites.
Comments: I had to try Black's BBQ to see how this old Texas tradition was. I ordered the family meal which was just under $20 and claimed to feed 4. There was plenty of sides but the meat was about enough for 3. It came with 1 pound ..

About Austin

Austin, Texas long been an cultural oasis of tall, leafy trees, incredible spring fed swimming holes, and parks surrounded by hundreds of live music venues, museums and great restaurants. Home at various times to Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson and other country music greats, the city also features a thriving punk rock and jazz scene. On a warm evening -- and most evenings in this town are suitable for walking around without a jacket, since winters are mild -- anyone in search of a good time can head down to Sixth Street and stroll from club to bar to restaurant amid throngs of ecstatic partygoers. Most clubs have low admissions prices, if any, and all offer that staple of Texas culture, Lone Star Beer. When your stomach starts rumbling, there's no better place in Texas to look for a good meal, whether it's the southern-fried deliciousness of Threadgills, which offers chicken fried steak with jalapeo peppers, oyster po boys, sweet tea and several types of cobbler, or the meaty goodness of the town's many taquerias, you'll have no trouble finding something good to eat. In the morning, Austinites love to work off their decadence with a run around Town Lake, in the greenbelt, or a swim in icy, spring fed Barton Springs pool, which has a natural limestone bottom and even a few fish swimming about. For the less intrepid, there are other pools fed from warm water springs. Then its off to work at one of Austin's many high-tech companies, like Dell Industries, or for the Whole Foods chain, which is headquartered in town. Or maybe shopping is your thing, in which case the numerous trendy boutiques around The University of Texas will satisfy any cravings not met by Austin's awesome malls.
