Christmas in Austin is different, it tastes different than any Christmas. It is savored in magical places that will only be available during these dates and that make Christmas cocktails and gastronomy a unique delight. It’s a suitable time to explore and let ourselves be carried away by the pleasures of life shared with those who matter most to us. Remember, to respect the measures in force to prevent the spread of COVID is mandatory.
We travel throughout that illuminated Austin that brings us closer to the most special Christmas through unique flavors and fascinating foodie plans. Do not miss these proposals that go directly to your palate.
Lights By The Lake
A sweet Austin tradition is visiting Mozart’s every Christmas. There, a fabulous show of lights and music unfolds on the shore of the lake and turns into an experience that is not forgotten throughout the year. That’s the Christmas at Mozart’s. This year, the show requires a prior reservation due to sanitary restrictions, but it’s worth enjoying this unique spectacle. By the way, savoring their coffees, their bakery or their incredible Cocoa Bomb Blossoms is another good excuse to reserve a table at Mozart’s and try Christmas temptations that you cannot stop savoring.
The Taste Of Christmas
If there is a place in the world where you can fully immerse yourself in the most authentic Christmas flavors, it is Miracle on 5th Street. This pop-up bar is an ode to exquisite cocktails, shots and dishes that elevate Christmas to a higher foodie level. You can enjoy their flavors on-site or at home. Recipes such as Sweet & Spiced Nuts, Marinated Olives, Snickerdoodle Cookies or Spiked Vanilla Cream paired with cocktails with names and flavors as suggestive as Yippie Ki Yay Mother F **** R, Snowball Old Fashioned, Christmapolitan or Run Run Rudolph. How to resist?

Say Goodbye To 2020, Once And For All
Without a doubt, the most special night of the year is New Year’s Eve. A night in which we will say goodbye to this terrible 2020 and renew illusions and desires through a party to remember. Gatsby’s House has organized an event where you can dream of a new year with all the measures to avoid the spread of COVID. Wearing masks is mandatory. Endless fun with five hours prepaid bar, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, four different areas where you can be isolated on your table with your friends (no more than 6 people) and an incredible countdown to say goodbye to the year. All this enlivened by 3 of the best DJs in the city who will set the night’s rhythm. An unforgettable way to say goodbye to 2020.
A River At Christmas
Bonus Track- San Antonio’s Riverwalk lights
The lights of San Antonio’s Riverwalk introduce you to a unique universe. Its reflection in the river, the color on the trees and dozens of culinary proposals, such as Ocho, Boudro’s or Gwendolyn, while tempting Frozen Margaritas seek to be your companions on a walk. Impossible not to be fascinated. A perfect getaway to enjoy a different and tasty Christmas. An experience that is well worth the trip to San Antonio.
Enjoy the taste of this Christmas. We wish you the best for this 2021 that will surely take away all the negative things that we have experienced this year. Merry Christmas!
