Golf Driving Range
$$
“If you have never been to TopGolf, you should go. It is far up north, but it is great fun -- even if you don't golf. The food is pretty decent too. It is across the street from the Domain area. The Domain has shopping, restaurants, bars and is lively in the evening. ”

Dive Bar
$
“Classic Austin mainstay. For years, it was owned by the same people who kept it adorned in Christmas decor - with various theories regarding its origin. Some say it was because the owner's son left for war during Christmas and never came back. Some say it's simply good marketing. It has recently taken new ownership but its halls are still decked with boughs of holly, and now there's a Stubb's food truck outside.”

BBQ Restaurant
$
“Mysteriously under the radar BBQ spot with a full bar. Their herbed pork ribs are some of the best I've had here, in my opinion, and the other stuff isn't too shabby either. Sides are tweaked by the chef, not straightforward, and slightly "fancy." Whiskey of the month is $5 at all times and $3 during happy hour. Tons of whiskey, full bar, incredible old building, beautiful bar, and decent outdoor area. They run out of BBQ towards the end of the night. Parking is really tough, so this would be a great one to Lyft to...and take advantage of that special whiskey. ”

“Quintessential dive bar turned trendy - basically still a dive bar without scary people. Pro-tip: there's an amazing food truck out back that has unique menu items like venison and bass ceviche. Personally I prefer fanciness served with plastic cutlery. ”

“This place is great and a staple for dog owners visiting the Austin area; in this park, you can hang, eat, drink, and bring your dog! They have "lifeguards" on duty to take care of pups while you socialize, and when the weather is good, a great place to sit down and relax.”
