Floating Tavern On Lake Travis
The Floating Tavern is a choice venue for live entertainment, fusion tapas, and expert mixology. Boarding from the north shore of Lake Travis, evenings begin with a sunset cruise just before arriving to the Floating Tavern where each event is specially curated to deliver an intimate experience for families, friends, and even corporate spectators.
By maintaining small staff, limited seating capacity, and exquisite dining from scratch, all guests will find this journey to be one of a kind. While the staff prepares the proper ambiance aboard the tavern, some groups may opt to visit one of the North shores popular attractions during their sunset trip while others have the option to arrive directly to the tavern.
We are anchored near Waterloo Adventures and Lake Travis Zip Line which is the longest and fastest zip line in Texas. The Oasis on Lake Travis is one of the most popular restaurants known for having the best Texas sunsets. Other popular places are Steiner Ranch Steakhouse, Los Pinos Mexican Restaurant and Emerald Point Bar & Grill Marina which is one of numerous restaurants accessible by boat. For an additional fee we can provide transportation via Pontoon to any of the waterfront restaurants. The lake is a reservoir on the Colorado River in central Texas.
Your host will meet you upon check-in and check-out and will be available by phone 24/7.
