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 are 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 (Suerte, The Brewer’s Table) 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 Suerte, The Brewer’s Table, Banger’s, and Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum to the map.

For more party planning, Eater highlighted the city’s best bets for group meals and restaurants with sharable plates. For weddings, there are restaurants that make for great receptions, catering spots, and wedding cake bakeries.
