Hotel Saint Cecilia Eccentric luxury featured

Put simply, hotels don’t get more sumptuous than this. Nor more Austin. It exudes luxury and quirkiness in equal measures. Which means that you get the fattest handmade Hästens mattresses and the silkiest Rivolta Carmignani cotton sheets, without ever forgetting that this is Texas and southern hospitality is what they do best.

Fourteen rooms and suites are dotted throughout this leafy…

Barley Swine Locally yours featured

Sometimes, you should believe the hype. And trendier-than-thou Barley Swine is one such case. Star chef, owner and local boy Bryce Gilmore has been the toast of the town since opening his much-celebrated restaurant back in 2010. A card-carrying locavore, Gilmore’s ingredients are carefully sourced in the region and as such gradually change with the seasons—as nature intended it.

With such…

The Contemporary Austin Into the artistic deep end featured

When it comes to homegrown Austin creativity, music and tech tend to grab the headlines. Lately though, the art scene has been amassing its fair share of column inches, and rightly so. But what is the real go-to spot, if you want to dive into the deep end of the city’s contemporary art world?

One thing’s for sure: Don’t be put off by the too-obvious-to-be-true sounding name of The…

Die Registratur The legend returns featured

A loss was felt in the city when Die Registratur closed its doors in 2009. A large void was left in the club scene, never filled, until now that is. And who’s filling Die Registratur’s shoes? Die Registratur. Opening up in a new location, but from the same people, it promises to be all that it once was and more. Good going considering the new venue’s smaller proportions. There’s also been a distinct shift in the ethos of the bar, the owner’s do-goodery seeping into the furniture—no leather, and the drinks—no cream or milk, and with a new motto to boot: “Be Aware”. (Something that you might not always want to be in a club).

Like before, there will be art exhibitions and readings but it’s really all about the music. Doing away with gimmicks and distractions, there are no flashing disco lights, just a great sound system and exciting bookings that roam beyond the confines of four-to-the-floor electronica. Wanting to cater to an older audience, or rather their original audience, acts are on earlier than usual and the headliners are given free reign to play what they want and for however long. Though don’t worry, if you think time has escaped you in here, you’ll gain it back on stepping outside—all the clocks in the bar are set hours ahead. Being “unaware” can be a good thing too, it seems.
