The holiday season is upon Austin, and with that comes the battle to find the best venue for a festive party. Whatever the occasion (Festivus venue, baby shower, Tuesday), there is a multitude of options for parties and dinners of every size, while still ensuring that food quality is still top-notch.
Eater gathered the best of the best private dining rooms found in Austin restaurants. Celebrate with friends at the newest and trendiest or at historical favorites (Jeffrey’s, Moonshine Bar + Grill). Many locations offer a host of additional services like television screens or floral arrangements (Uchiko, Fixe) perfect for those business meals, special dinner parties, or for those who — be honest — get lost in planning every detail. This update adds Il Brutto, Rosewood, Lonesome Dove, Canje, Garbo’s, Simi Estiatorio, Oasthouse, and East Tiger East Seventh to the map.
As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each one is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask and tip well.
