The Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel & Conference Center has opened an outdoor event space, Live Oak Patio, to reign in spring with outdoor events and celebrations. The venue is centered around a 200-year-old live oak tree and features an airy patio with scenic views of Rivery Park and the San Gabriel River. 

The Live Oak Patio can seat up to 130 guests for wedding ceremonies, up to 100 guests for seated dinners or up to 130 guests standing. It can also accommodate live music and entertainment.

The 222-room hotel boasts 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space enhanced by custom catering and expert planners, the Live Oak Patio now among its list of impressive venues.

The new concept restaurant designed by Howe & Brown Hospitality has maritime inspired food and craft cocktails that will prove to be a delight for travelers and locals. Using locally-sourced ingredients, the cuisine emphasizes technique and texture to highlight the exuberance of in-season seafood. 

 

Known as “The World’s Most Famous Building,” the Empire State Building, which welcomes more than 4 million visitors per year, has been going through some changes. One of those changes is the preparation of NYC: Above and Beyond, an interactive exhibit dedicated to global tourists in New York City. Set to be located on the 80th floor of the famous building, the exhibit will offer personalized travel recommendations to visitors.

 

Despite being open for only 15 months, Somni is awarded two Michelin stars. Led by Chef Aitor Zabala with Chef José Andrés, the SLS Beverly Hills restaurant celebrates the honor as well as the Michelin Guide’s return to Los Angeles after a decade.
