One of the hottest spots to eat right now is Barlata Tapas Bar, and December is a perfect time to try this cozy restaurant. Tapas is a fun way to spend an intimate dinner with your loved one or share among a group of your closest friends or family. The Plate of Spanish Olives is a delicious way to start off your meal, and any of the Paellas are the star of the menu.

Less than 500 feet, sits one of the best live music venues in Austin, The Saxon Pub. Playing local favorites, such as Guy Forsyth and James McMurty, this intimate bar is an excellent place to enjoy a warm night out of the cold. In fact, in an interview with Texas Monthly, Bob Schneider stated that he will often test out one of his new songs at The Saxon Pub on Monday nights.
TIP: Tickets can be bought in advance online. They have restaurants which will deliver food to the Pub.
Both venues within 500 feet of each other on 1500 South Lamar Blvd in SoLa.
