The Leander/Cedar Park area can feel half a planet away from the ATX music scene, even if it’s just 40 minutes out. Fortunately, the region has Rumi’s Tavern, located in the nexus of Leander and Jonestown. Specialty cocktails and microbrews join oysters, shrimp, and sandwiches in filling your belly, while bands leaning toward classic rock and Americana fill your ears. You can even get in on the action with Sunday night open jams hosted by DeWayne Davis. With a capacity of about 150, every show feels intimate.

Check out one of the 55-inch hi-def TVs, and wash down an excellent chicken-fried chicken with the coldest beer around.
