…for being just about the cutest restaurant EVER!
Last night, I went to Jacoby’s Restaurant and Mercantile for the first time (located on East Cesar Chavez) and I couldn’t believe how cute the restaurant was. I’m talking backyard string lights, a huge outdoor patio for dining, a backyard area with outdoor tables, chairs and couches for mixing and mingling, views of the Colorado River flowing below, great drinks, delicious food….it was just so quaint and perfect that my friend said she would even have her wedding there. Okay, she may not be totally serious, but you get the point. And get this–Jacoby’s offers FREE VALET PARKING. Seriously?! It’s hard enough to find easy parking alone in Austin, but to find a venue that only offers valet that is free? Dream come true. Especially if you’re on that broke-student-salary like me.
Jacoby’s has a really great Happy Hour menu with some drinks and snacks being half-off. And, for all of you who like to turn up on a Tuesday, Happy Hour goes until 9pm on Tuesdays. Score! I ordered the French Kiss, which was half off, and it was amazing. If you like pomegranate and peaches (and vodka), then you’ll love it. Plus, it was pink, and you can never go wrong with a pink drink.
If you’re like me, after filling your belly, you’ll head inside to the mercantile shop and spend even more money that you don’t have because it’s too hard to resist. #nojobnoprob?
Overall, everyone needs to pay a visit to Jacoby’s. I was literally there 24 hours ago and I’m already trying to plan my next outing there.
