Darn Good Places: Night

Best ways to spend a night out in Austin

We are talking about what to do when the sun goes down.   I break it down into 4 categories, Morning, Day, Night and Party (late night). At night we are trying to keep our energy going and looking to enjoy a great meal with friends, a show or a drink somewhere with a good view.

Examples: Dinner, Happy Hour, Cocktails, music venues, performance theaters, movie theaters
