Dean’s Steakhouse was one of those meals that my husband and I dreamed about and talked about for weeks after we ate there.  It is a legit steakhouse inside the JW Marriott, serving fresh seafood, raw oysters and steaks for days.  They serve Prime, Tomahawk and Wagyu steaks with a variety of sauces, along with sauces which will make your heart leap.  Honestly, the Italian salad and Pettite Seafood Plateau could have been our meal and I would’ve been satisfied, but then the Tomahawk arrived at the table.  I’m pretty sure my heart was beating 100mph when I saw it!  We also loved the wine listing, and the amazing sides.  If it’s patio weather, they have a cool spot in the back.  You will not be disappointed by the entire experience…enjoy!

TIP:  Inside the JW Marriott.  Reservations available on Open Table. Open daily for brunch, lunch and dinner.   


Moody Theatre is legendary.  When available, Tours are open Monday through Friday 11am to noon. Guests are guided through the home of the Austin City Limits television show. This state of the art venue allows all guests to be seated within 75 feet of the stage allowing for an intimate concert experience. The tour takes guests through galleries showcasing the work of legendary music photographers Scott Newton and Jim Marshall.



3 Ten ACL is the baby sister of Moody on the bottom floor with a cozy, intimate spot for watching music.  Austin doesn’t disappoint with its nonstop live music, and the artists, with the low prices cannot be beat.  It’s a few steps away from She’s Not Here, and a perfect follow up for a night out with a date or loved ones.



Milk + Honey Spa is one of the best spas in Austin.  A day or night of indulgence starts at the spa with a massage, facial or mani/pedi, and is a perfect way to relax before enjoying the rest of your experience in Downtown Austin. Along with the traditional spa services, they provide hair cuts, blow outs, and color too!

TIP:  Reservations can be booked online.  Parking options found on website. 



Violet Crown is the best movie theater for a small, boutique experience.  Order a bottle of wine and dessert, and enjoy a movie at the Violet Crown theatre. If you arrive early, you can enjoy their bar off the main cinema. Try the Spring Rolls and Cake Balls for dessert.  Delish.

Tip: 2 hour validated parking available.
