Looking for a Venue in Austin?


2 Dine 4 Fine Catering        512.467.6600

Owner Stephen Shallcross is an Austin Godsend. The entire team is brilliant.

People fly 2 Dine 4 out to cater events regularly, from Pebble Beach PGA to the Caribbean to Cabo! A couple of years ago, the team was part of a formal, Titanic Party on the Colorado River downtown Austin, the boat sank (on purpose) and the staff and guests swam for their lives! (Outside of 2 Dine 4, most of the attendees were not told by the host that this was going to happen) It was a newsworthy hoot!

The 2 Dine 4 experience is extremely attentive at every step. I use/recommend them for everything! They always make me feel important, cared for, and I get to be a "star" for the day... SWOOP EVENTS is the event planning arm of 2 Dine 4 (the Swoop House event venue is pictured here) that can help plan every single aspect of your event. I am proud to frequently help with beverage consultations. 2 Dine 4 Rocks!

French Legation -

On a hill near downtown Austin you will find a lovely relic, reminiscent of the days when Texas was a Republic...

Nestled in a quiet, green corner of the bustling modern capital of the State of Texas, the French Legation was originally built in 1840-41 to be the residence of the chargé d'affaires who represented the government of France in the Republic of Texas.

The Legation became the home of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Robertson in 1848, remaining in their family until 1949, when it was acquired by the State of Texas. Under the custodianship of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, the site has been lovingly restored and furnished with items original to its time period. It is the oldest extant frame structure in Austin.

Caswell House -

Historic house, near downtown.

Tuscan Hall -

Your guests will park on a natural rock shelf big enough to hold 100 cars. It will be the largest and most level stone that any of them has ever seen. Walk through the archway and descend the stone steps. That roar to your left is a waterfall. Cross the flagstone plaza, enter the double doors ahead and prepare to be amazed.

Miller-Crockett House -

This historical landmark of Texas has been around about as long as Austin and has been referred to as "The best kept secret in Austin." The Miller-Crockett House is definitely one of the "must sees" that Central Texas has to offer whether on vacation, business or weddings.

Generally, restaurants/hotels in Austin are not "Bring Your Own Wine" friendly, especially if you are talking large quantities. Most larger restaurants sell spirits, as well as wine, and are not legally allowed to let you bring your own. In Texas, it is illegal to BYOWine if you sell spirits as part of your license (with a “wine & beer & spirits” license)…

“Welcome to Austin.” & “Welcome to Texas.”
