Built back in 1866 by early entrepreneur August Scholz, over the years Scholz Garten has served as a saloon, cafe, boarding house, opera house, concert hall and finally a German food restaurant and biergarten. It is one of the oldest bars in America and a destination to watch University of Texas football games, occasionally celebrate victories, observe politicians haggle and share a beer with grandparents remembering their glory days. A true bucket list destination and perhaps the most uniquely authentic Austin watering hole. Be sure to like them on Facebook.
