Was looking for some advice on traveling to Austin, Texas on bars/restaurants/activities. I've read some other forums, but most were pretty old. We will be a group of 10 or 11 guys for a bachelor party weekend get away. We range from mid 20's to low 30's in age. We are only coming in for a weekend mid July next year. We are not from the area or state.
Not looking to spend a ton of money, but want to throw the groom-to-be a good time.
Was thinking we would stay downtown, near 6th street somewhere. Currently looking in to a vacation rental in the vicinity, unless anyone knows of a really cheap hotel in that area. Also contemplating renting a boat/party barge and going out on lake travis for the day on Saturday. As far as evening activities, i assume bar hop on Friday, repeat on Saturday, while throwing in a possible gentlemen's club stop the last night there. As far as food goes, the groom likes BBQ and Mexican. As far as bar scene... probably a mix. We will probably want to stop by both "club" type bars and more chill ones that might have bar games (shuffle board, darts, etc.)
Any and all suggestions welcome. Is lake travis a good idea? Boat rental company suggestions? Restaurant suggestions? Bar Suggestions?
*Forgot to mention live music at the bar is always a plus. Does live music always mean cover charge in Austin?Edited: 17 December 2013, 23:34
