    I hope you will be including Sway on your list very soon. It’s a great looking building where Thai Kitchen used to be. Upstairs is an open air bar, serving appetizers as well, with a breathtaking view of downtown Austin. It will be great when the weather warms up some. The food is delicious,it’s a beautiful setting with ambiance galore. Westlake truly needed this addition as choice for excellent food and service.
    Hope you go soon.
