Lady Bird Lake Boat Tour
As one of the best cities to incorporate nature into its urban setting, a boat celebration is the perfect way to enjoy all that Mother Nature and Austin have to offer. We’ll plan the perfect route so you can experience the holiday offerings at Zilker and Downtown Austin, sailing by the Trail of Lights and a festive, friendly Austin skyline.
Blanton Museum of Art
Rated as one of the best museums in Austin, this unique setting will have people thinking about the city differently and with an appreciation beyond the usual “must-see” locales. Host your Christmas cocktail party at the center of the museum in the Rapoport Atrium.
Stick to your Texas roots with some good ol’ Texas barbeque in this rustic setting. After all, barbeque isn’t just for summer. From the upstairs saloon to the outdoor beer garden, you’ll get a true Texas experience at Freedmen’s. Pair their smokehouse barbeque with a selection from the whiskey wall, which hosts whiskey from places like Ireland and Canada, and your guests will leave in awe and wonder why they’ve never put the two together before!
Warehouse District Rooftops
There’s no better way to take in the Austin skyline than atop buildings in the Warehouse District. Enjoy panoramic views of Lady Bird Lake and the iconic Frost Bank Tower from places like Summit and Hangar Lounge. Once you pick the perfect rooftop venue, we’ve got you covered. We’ll customize your experience with a live band and delicious food. It’s a holiday celebration that will remind people why they love this city, or give newcomers a way to enjoy these views for the first time.

Mixing the old with the new, its elegant Victorian facade is complemented with a mid-century modern pool. With unique decorations and Austin vibes, we are sure to make your holiday experience unique with this venue.
