The Oasis

6550 Comanche
Austin, 78732
Nothing tests the mettle of a musician like having to compete with the best sunsets in Texas. Opened by Beau Theriot in 1982, the Oasis has grown from a remote ranch house on the western edge of town to a four-tiered food and entertainment fortress overlooking Lake Travis with a capacity of 2,500. Neither a 2005 fire nor the 2010-13 drought stanched the venue’s momentum. During the spring and summer months, the Oasis features live music on weekends and select Thursdays. Frequent fliers include venerable all-purpose show band Rotel & the Hot Tomatoes and Eighties glam-metal specialists LC Rocks.

Travis Room at Lakeway Resort & Spa

Huge windows offer stunning lake views at this grandfather of restaurants on the lake. The decidedly country-clubby menu gives a nod to Southern comfort foods.
