Austin: Your 2017 Lyftie Award Winners

Austin, ever wonder where everyone is eating, or where to find the hottest happy hour? Lyft has collected passenger drop-off data from across the city to give you the most popular destinations of 2017. Check out the list of Lyftie Award winners from Austin, and enjoy special Lyft-exclusive deals to celebrate these local Austin favorites.

Most Visited Restaurant: Torchy’s Tacos

Do you prefer a Democrat or a Republican? We aren’t talking about politics here, but rather which taco to order at this Austin institution that got its start as a traveling food truck. Whether you are ordering off the standard menu or the secret “sacred” menu, add an order of the Green Chile Queso and prepare for nap time.

Most Visited Bar: Cheer Up Charlies

Located in the heart of the Red River District, Cheer Ups serves as an LGBTQ haven with an impressive list of organic juice-blended cocktails. Check out one of their popular drag shows or enjoy live music underneath their parachute-covered patio. Not feelin’ boozy? Grab a glass of kombucha on tap.

Most Visited Event Space: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

Alamo Drafthouse takes your movie experience seriously, and that includes serving up delicious food, craft beer, good times and making an example of those who think talking or texting through a film is okay. We recommend hitting up a signature movie party, 90s sing-along or Master Pancake series. See their list of December specialty screenings here.

Most Visited University: University of Texas

Ranked among the biggest and best universities in the country, UT Austin is home to more than 51,000 students and 3,000 teaching faculty. Even famous alum Matthew McConaughey has been seen giving students a lift from time to time. Alright, alright, alright!

Only In Austin…: Bangers Sausage House and Beer Garden

Enjoy one of the 30 house-made sausages and over 100 draft beers at Bangers’ massive beer garden filled with picnic tables, live music and good times. Also, not to be overlooked is their Texas-sized Manmosa, which contains 1 liter of champagne and is only served during brunch!  

Trending Destination: Native Hostel and Bar & Kitchen

Native Hostel was able to open its doors this year after a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign. A completely transformed 19th-century limestone building hosts a cozy interior lounge, coffee shop, restaurant, “Romper Room” for yoga practice and beyond, and 65 beds. Travelers and locals alike munch on Native’s out-of-this-world waffle fry nachos and sip on refreshing Mex-can Martinis.

Haven’t had a chance to check out Native Hostel’s free bar crawl or dine on a Democrat at Torchy’s? Use code ATXAWARD17 for 17% off a ride to any of the winning locations.
