    Amazing location with exceptional service!

    Lily was exceptional to work with and very patient with me and understanding of my hectic schedule. The staff working in the Cafe to assist with our reception were exceptional as well. Lily and the wait staff made our special day even more perfect than I could have ever expected or imagined!

    The Driskill's reply:

    Kelley - Thank you so much for your kind words. It was truly my pleasure helping you and Joe celebrate. On behalf of The Driskill team, thank you for trusting us with such a special day!!

    Traditional, Historic, Classic, Beautiful wedding at the Driskill

    In the mid-1990s, my mother and I attended my cousin’s wedding at the Driskill, and it was so fabulous that I told my then six-year-old daughter: “When you grow up, I want you to get married at the Driskill.” Fast forward to this past Saturday, and the dream came true.

    Planning during Covid was a challenge. We had to postpone the wedding for 8 months, but the Driskill, and the wedding coordinator Kristin Davis, shepherded us through every decision and answered every question, no matter how trivial or redundant. The Driskill also took care of Covid protocols to keep our guests safe, and yet we truly threw the party of the decade (at least so far). In a strange way, the fact that we could even have the celebration, with so many vaccinated, made the wedding even more joyous.

    The setting: so beautiful that you can save on flowers. The interior is so beautiful and historic.
    The food: Chef Jose is amazing. The food was incredibly delicious, and we were able to offer five choices of entrees.
    The bar service: Such great service that the bartender poured my second Aperol spritz before I had to ask.
    Dancing: There’s a separate ballroom for dancing, which is fabulous because it allows for those who would rather converse a quieter place to do so while the dancers can have at it.

    If you love history and tradition and a full-service wedding venue, the Driskill is perfect. I know outdoor weddings are the rage, but after Covid, who wants to worry about something else they can’t control, like the weather? Our guests also loved staying in central Austin. I can’t recommend the Driskill enough. I am so grateful.

    a DREAM venue and staff!

    Our wedding ceremony and reception at the Driskill were a dream! Not only is the Driskill one of the most historic, beautiful and classy venues in Austin, but also home to the best staff and top notch customer service. Katie and Kristin were professional, responsive, creative, kind and so easy to work with. We wanted a southern menu and Katie helped us create an off-the-menu plated dinner with duck fat fried chicken! Our guests raved about the food! And, our signature cocktail was such a hit! Katie kept us updated on our room block list, and answered any and every question we had (and we had a lot) during the planning process! The day of the wedding everything went so smoothly and the staff exceeded our expectations with their kindness and service! Our attendant made sure our drinks were never empty and we had plenty of water. We are so thankful we chose the Driskill for our wedding and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!
