Dining Room at Swift's Attic, Austin, TX

< Previous | 

Cool d├ęcor (luxurious chandeliers encased in antique bird cages for starters), eclectic fare and modernized classic cocktails are sure to help break the ice at Swift's Attic in Austin. After you've indulged in seared scallops with chimichurri, save room for the dessert dubbed Popcorn & a Movie: butter popcorn gelato atop a candy bar with root beer gel and caramel corn. Bonus: One of the best jazz bars in Texas, The Elephant Room, is located downstairs.
