Austin Dining & Reception Sites

If you are planning an evening reception or dinner with UT Law students, we recommend that your event begin no earlier than 6 p.m. to avoid class conflicts and maximize event attendance. We also ask that you avoid scheduling receptions that conflict with religious holidays. Below is a small sampling of the many fine restaurants and reception sites in/near the Downtown Austin area.
