Like a step back in time, the renovated lobby of the Driskill hotel recalls an Austin unmarred by miles of traffic, manufactured subdivisions, chain restaurants, and strip malls. This homage to Lonestar aesthetics offers rich leather couches, cozy dining areas, and intimate lighting; the room acts as a destination rather than a segue – a place for reading, sipping coffee, and chatting with friends. The 1886 Cafe & Bakery, situated conveniently within the lobby area, boasts an array of delicious vittles.
