Live Music Spices Up The Night
April 25, 2011 § Leave a comment
Jovita’s is an awesome Mexican restaurant located at 1619 South First St. What makes Jovita’s such a special place, other than it’s great food and Happy Hour, is the live music scene it has going on pretty much every day of the week.
I went to Jovita’s for Happy Hour on Wednesday night and this was probably one of the best times I have had at a Happy Hour in a while. Ali Holder and Karin Gustafsson performed the entire Happy Hour from 6 to 8 pm. It was definitely a treat to have a live show going on while I got to drink with my friends. The atmosphere there was amazing. Everyone was enjoying themselves to the fullest. The type of people here are, I guess what you would call, your more “authentic Austinites”.
Jovita’s is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am until Midnight. The venue has three different indoor dining rooms, an outdoor patio that faces the historic South 1st Street, and a really beautiful outdoor seating area, which consists of a stage where the bands perform.
Another great thing about Jovita’s is there is a dance floor. So if you are in the mood to not only go to a great Happy Hour and see music but dance too, this is the place for you. The biggest thing that stuck out to me about Jovita’s is the fact that there is so much enthusiasm going on in this one place. Everybody seemed to genuinely be enjoying his or her time out. Although the drinks were a bit on the pricy side, if you are looking for a place to go to have a good time with friends, listen to live music, and be surrounded by the authenticity South 1st Street has to offer, Jovita’s is where it is at. I would give Jovita’s a thumbs-up.
