Here at backYARD at Waller Creek, every night’s a party, what with the relaxed al fresco ambience, the soul-nourishing Texas fare and libations, and the regular performances by local musicians demonstrating very clearly why Austin deserves the mantle of “Live Music Capital of the World.”

And it’s all the more laidback and liberating to join us here in the backYARD when you’re also staying over with us. That’s right: No trip home after an evening out in the YARD, besides a mere elevator ride just steps away.

backYARD at Waller Creek, you see, shares space with the Sheraton Austin at the Capitol, one of the finest and most auspiciously situated hotels in this great city. We don’t just supply outstanding cookery and live music, in other words, but also awesome downtown accommodations!

Austin Hospitality, Cuisine, & Culture at the backYARD at Waller Creek

The Sheraton Austin at the Capitol offers 367 chic and spacious guest rooms in the heart of downtown Austin, just a stone’s throw from the University of Texas and an easy commute away from the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. In short, you’re perfectly set up for business, pleasure, and everything in between with Sheraton Austin accommodations. Throw in our gastronomic and musical attractions here at the backYARD, and we’re going to boldly assert you won’t find a better home base in the Texas capital than our East 11thStreet perch.

And local musicians are always taking to the backYARD stage to supply a live soundtrack. In combination with our Texas-inspired dishes, our live music ensures you’re getting an authentic dose of Austin culture.
