Executives at ESA’s Leadership Summit will have an abundance of opportunities to share best practices, network and learn from out-of-the-industry experts during their three days at the event — but there’s much this hot spot has to offer above and beyond ESA event programming. The 2019 event’s host city of Austin, TX has plenty to offer, even just within a mile of the hotel.
For those who consider themselves culinary connoisseurs, there are an abundance of options ranging from food trucks to fine dining. Top-notch southern fare at Terry Black’s Barbecue is just around the corner from the Hyatt, or for a prime steakhouse experience, attendees can take a scenic stroll across the Colorado River to III Forks. For dessert, the innovative treats at Voodoo Doughnut are sure to please anyone with a fried-dough craving.
The boutiques, eateries and galleries of South Congress are also less than a mile from the Hyatt. This nationally recognized shopping and cultural district is a must-see. Plan to visit the Big Top Candy Shop for a treat before seeing a couple of Austin’s well-known murals. Stop in Sugar & Paris to see their collection of fine art, jewelry and gifts, or head to Yard Dog to browse a quirky selection of pop and folky art from around the world. When you’ve had your fill of shopping, head to tenoverten for a manicure or pedicure, then visit South Congress Massage to further unwind.
The fun keeps going long after dark, with plenty of live music options to keep feet tapping. South Congress staple Continental Club hosts concerts every night of the week, and has been recognized by Rolling Stone as one of the best clubs in America. North across the river is the Elephant Room, a basement jazz club with nightly performances by trios, jam groups or quintets.
For even more nightlife options, Rainey Street has a variety of bars and restaurants built in stylish repurposed houses – all just over a mile from the hotel.
The convenient access to all these aspects of Austin’s unique culture makes this year’s Leadership Summit even more exciting.
Don’t miss opportunity to start 2019 on the right foot: refreshed, energized, and inspired to take your business to the next level.
