If you’re in need of a topnotch venue for a holiday party in the great city of Austin, Texas this festive stretch of the calendar, look no further than backYARD at Waller Creek. We’d be happy to host you and your group, and ensure your event is truly a celebration.

We’re perfectly set up for hosting holiday parties or any other special events throughout the year. We supply outstanding Texan fare, an inspiring lineup of adult beverages (and non-alcoholic options, too, of course), and a regular schedule of live music featuring some of Austin’s best and brightest performers. What more could you ask for when it comes to ringing in the holiday season in style with coworkers, friends, and/or family?

Holiday Parties in the YARD

Our outdoor eatery out back of the Sheraton Austin at the Capitol serves as a readymade venue for any and all soirees, shindigs, and gala gatherings this holiday season.

You certainly can’t beat our decked-out menu, which puts the spotlight on more than a few time-honored Texan culinary traditions as well as the kitchen creativity of our own Chef Thad Crennen. House rubs, specialty spice mixes, and a variety of local ingredients—including bounty plucked from the backYARD garden—help take our crowd-pleasing fare to the next level.

Your party guests will love such delightfully share-able starters as our Tableside Guacamole, our Chili Con Queso, our Shrimp Ceviche, our Baja Fish Tacos, and our trademark backYARD wings, not to mention the one-of-a-kind Maple-glazed Bacon Lollipops. Entrees include everything from Short Rib & Grits and Coffee-rubbed Filet Mignon to Herb-crusted Sea Bass and Pan-seared Cauliflower Steak, plus of course the ever-popular Yardburger.

Then there’s our transcendent suite (sweet?) of desserts, from the Yard Banana Pudding and our Pecan Pie (embellished with a Bourbon Whisky Butter Sauce) to our Chocolate Bomb and Campfire S’more.

In terms of getting right to the bone of the holiday spirit, meantime, you and your partygoers will have at your fingertips our array of signature cocktails, including the Fiery Ginger, the Texas Mojito, and the Mezcal Old Fashioned. Throw in an awesome roster of craft brews on tap—including more than a few local options—and a robust wine list, and you’ve got the arsenal you need for a homerun celebration.
