backYARD at Waller Creek is Austin’s newest restaurant, bar and outdoor venue in downtown. The concept, which had a soft opening during SXSW 2017, is new to the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol. The backYARD offers American cuisine with a Texas twist and cocktails using house-infused spirits, and has a spacious outdoor space perfect for events.

backYARD hosts a range of live music performances at 7 p.m. every Thursday through Saturday, along with late night fare, but is more than an evening gathering place. Guests can fuel up with breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. backYARD’s Live Music Brunch is every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Created by Executive Chef Lonny Huot, backYARD at Waller Creek’s menu features local ingredients, house rubs and spices. Highlights include Chorizo & Pepper Jack Grits Cakes Benedict with smoked tomato hollandaise; Carnitas, Chili Lime Shrimp and Baja Fish tacos; and 24-hour house-brined Bone-In Pork Chop with chorizo and sweet potato hash, scallions and guajillo chilies.

Measuring in at 11,500 square feet, the backYARD includes a beer-garden and auditorium seating, an airstream equipped with a pared down kitchen and full bar, plus yard games. From tailgate events to wedding receptions to corporate parties and meet-ups, the area can hold up to 80 seated guests or 150 for a standing reception.
