Austin Texas: Capitol City Streets “Top 4”

Austin is a dope city, and happens to be one of my favorite places to visit when the universe blesses me with a long weekend. ATX is known for being “weird”, but this quirky city has never failed me when on the hunt for fun. My most recent visit consisted of family and friend time at a few pretty dope places.


Capitol City Streets highlights my “Top 4” recommendations for food and fun while in Austin!


Elegant yet casual multilevel space with a large terrace providing refined Italian fare & wine.
Address: 3411 Glenview Ave, Austin, TX 78703

Olive June: Cured Salumi and Cheese Spread

I visited Olive & June for a wedding reception and really enjoyed the “vibe”  and ambiance of the restaurant. There is a rooftop terrace over looking the area that is super romantic. I suggest ALL their red wines, paired with their Cured Salumi & cheese Platter. Pro Tip: Ask for extra fig mostarda, it’s delicious.


Hip hangout with both a bakery/cafe and A creek-side beer garden serving simple snacks & cheeses.
Address: 709 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701

Easy Tiger Bake Shop and Beer Garden


On a breezy and cool Saturday afternoon, Easy Tiger is a must. It’s fairly family friendly with games and space for the little ones to run, scream and play. It’s also the perfect playground for adults, due to their massive offerings of craft beer. The Pro Tip here consists of Three words: PATIOS. PRETZELS. BEERS. In that order!


Contemporary comfort food & cocktails in a historic home with a patio.
Address: 303 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701

Moonshine Patio Bar and Grill

Moonshine is nestled in the historic Waterloo Compound is a cozy and casual patio bar and grill. Another great place to soak up the sun, while sipping on Moonshine and noshing on their cayenne pepper popcorn. I have yet to acquire a palate for moonshine but there was no way I was leaving without trying some. Their “White Lightning” was sip-able, but the Original Moonshine “Corn Dog” Shrimps are why I will return. Huge skewered shrimp, battered and fried with a honey mustard blueberry swirl dipping sauce. 5 stars.


Swanky venue for live jazz & blues featuring light fare, a wide selection of vodkas & a back deck.
Address: 115 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701

Brass House

Brass House is THE spot in downtown Austin for live Jazz and Blues. They have a rocking menu and a full bar. Pro Tip: Reserve a table, bring the gang and enjoy a night of live music and dancing. The Cocktails are strong and the Fritto Misto is served smoking hot.
