Down stairs in the lobby area where you can enjoy their famous tree, will also be free treats from the Driskill 1886 bakery and music--and then upstairs in the bar area is where we can enjoy more music and appetizers--
Something from their web page
The Driskill Hotel opened on December 20, 1886-shortly before Christmas--to great fanfare and applause from the under 20,000 citizens who inhabited Austin at the time. The Austin Daily Statesman put out an eight-page special edition of the newspaper in a seven-tiered headline to announce that "...The building presents an imposing and inviting appearance, as it looms up like a palace above all the surrounding buildings."
Since that time, the "grande dame" of Texas hotels has remained a magnificent gathering place for Austinites, Texans and others to celebrate the holidays and other special moments of their lives in Col. Jesse Driskill's splendid Victorian masterpiece.
We invite you to recapture a nostalgic memory from a holiday season long past and to create new memories for your family and friends during 12 Days of Driskill
Hope to see you there
