Fresh Venues for Your Next Austin Event
With its vibrant food culture, trendsetting nightlife scene and array of creative private event venues, Austin has everything you’ll need to keep attendees entertained after meetings.
Dining and Nightlife Venues
Green Light Social
Give groups a first-hand introduction to the exciting nightlife scene in downtown Austin’s West 6th Street District when you visit Green Light Social, a retro-meets-modern nightclub and rooftop bar serving up classic cocktails and innovative new libations alongside a soundtrack of DJ beats. Make a reservation for your group.
Also in West 6th Street District, Rattle Inn is a live music venue and bar offering three distinct areas to entertain attendees: the Whiskey Lounge, a vintage-inspired cocktail lounge with leather banquettes; Ray’s Backstage, a cozy live music venue; and the Rooftop Deck, an open-air spot with gorgeous views of downtown. For private events, reserve one or all of these areas.
Austin Taco Project
Adjacent to the Convention Center (and just steps from Sixth Street District), the revamped Hilton Austin hotel introduced its new restaurant, Austin Taco Project, and with it, an exciting menu of globally-inspired “fusion tacos.” Your group can travel the globe—Morocco, Thailand, Korea and beyond—right from their table with inventive international dishes. Book one of the private rooms for groups of up to 75 people.
This casual West 6th Street spot harnesses all the fun of a backyard party. Whether your clients want to kick back by the fire pit with a beer in hand, listen to live music on the outdoor stage, catch the game on one of the HD TVs or engage in a little friendly competition (we’re talking “corn-hole,” giant beer pong and Jenga), Rustic Tap can make it happen. Private rentals can accommodate up to 500 people.
For meetings on the north side, bring groups over to The Domain Northside’s Rock Rose district, where shops, bars and restaurants — such as 77° Rooftop — line the pedestrian-friendly streets. Chic, sleek and sun-filled, this three-story rooftop patio bar boasts a trendy vibe, flavorful tapas and tropical craft cocktails (read: the perfect place for attendees to unwind for happy hour).
Private Event Venues
A hyper-cool cross between a recording studio and a mid-century modern lounge, this private event space inside the Hilton Austin hotel nods to the Live Music Capital of the World’s rich music scene. Work with The Reverbery team for a custom food menu to suit your event. (Capacity, including outdoor patio: 152)
The Sunset Room
For a blank canvas, The Sunset Room offers a beautiful, transformable space for your event. Located just across the street from the Convention Center and walking distance to Sixth Street District and Rainey Street District, this centrally located private event space brings to life a former textile warehouse, featuring an open floor plan, all-white walls and an understated, industrial-chic vibe. (Capacity: 200 seated/400 standing)
This urban rooftop in the heart of downtown’s historic Warehouse District features energizing city views, streamlined design, built-in bar packages and access to a catering prep kitchen — everything you could want in a private event facility. (Capacity: 150 seated/250 standing)
