Trio at Four Seasons holds the holy grail of all my happy hour delights.
$5 plates of delicious items like tuna tartare, ceviche, chicken fried steak bites, and crispy brussels.
The big draw for me is half-off wine (over 30 choices by the glass!); these deals are available Monday through Saturday from 5-7.
The outdoor grounds are unbelievable. You can view Town Lake, the bats, and joggers from the most serene settings I’ve ever found in Austin.
Go to Trio, sit at the bar, and hope that you get Suzy (my all-time favorite bartender).
