    You surprisingly can't hear 6th street inside! Magic! Order the Texas Pecan waffle for breakfast and eat it in the luxurious bed.

    Best secret Austin spot for live music. A-list musical talent, but cool conversational atmosphere.

    This hotel is nice, but I’m not sure it’s worth what they charge for it. Especially when you factor in $45/day for parking.

    the little seats near the elevators next to the bar is a nice place to sneak away from the crowds. "elevator alley", i call it.

    Is there a more Texan bar atmosphere? This is one of our top choices for post-show hangouts.

    The Driskill Hotel is lit up lovely at night. Consider shooting during dusk, and use a tripod to shoot at slower shutter speeds to avoid camera shake and blurry pictures.
