Fodor's Review

The old-fashioned bar at the historic Driskill Hotel is where history is made, from heavy-hitter political and business deals made over a handshake, to Austin Film elite sketching out their next big idea. (It's also the very spot where President Lyndon Baines Johnson proposed to his wife, Lady Bird Johnson in his early political career.) Rich fabrics, dark wood, and cowhide aplenty give this iconic bar a warm and cozy appeal. Patrons enjoy live piano music throughout the week on the classic Steinway piano, an amiable vibe, and stiff cocktails in true Texas fashion. This iconic luxury hotel and hotel bar reside in the epicenter of downtown Austin, so a VIP SXSW scene is definitely on the agenda.
