As the live music capital of the world, Austin is jam-packed with dive bars, honky tonk saloons, and theatres showcasing a wide variety of music gigs that cater to different tastes. And The Driskill puts you right in the middle of the city’s thriving music scene. It is within walking distance of several famous establishments, including Antone’s and The Parish, which are some of the city’s most famous music venues that host the annual world-famous SXSW Music Festival.
A short walk away is the Lady Bird Lake, which is the perfect destination for a morning jog or an evening walk. Outdoor enthusiasts can also engage in a range of water sports, including swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking, or hiking and cycling around well-marked trails in the park. Every night from March to November, crowds also gather in the park to watch Austin’s famous urban bat colony as they swoop out from under the Congress Avenue Bridge to hunt. During spring and summer, the Lady Bird Lake is also home to numerous music festivals and open-air concerts.
Doubles start at USD $315 per night.
