SPOTLIGHT: Moontower Saloon & Trailer Eatery
So… you say you’re looking for “The Austin Experience” way down on the border of South Austin and Manchaca? The Moontowaer compound will deliver! Set in a converted 1950’s ranch house, Moontower Saloon & Trailer Eatery is a dog-friendly venue with a relaxed atmosphere specifically designed for hanging out with friends on one of their many decks, enjoying live music, playing games, or simply enjoying a beverage. The venue has a loyal following and has grown from the 3 to 11 acres- there is plenty of room to park and play. Moontowaer is a fantastic place to organize a sand volleyball game, watch sports while noshing on some some shish kebobs, hummus, or or buffalo wings – and then you can gather your group and take some pics in the photo booth!
