Best Adult Birthday Ideas in Austin

Who says 8-year-olds get to have all the fun with their cupcakes and pinatas???  If you are searching for adult birthday ideas in Austin, boy do we have the party for you!

Best Adult Birthday Ideas in Austin:

1. Explore local breweries

Twisted Texas creates a wild ride that is memorable and unique…this will be a birthday to remember!  Ride along on either our Brunch Bus or Brew Bus.  The ride includes a live band on board the bus, food and drink along the way, and lots of embarrassing shout outs (if you so desire) for the birthday boy/girl.  We especially love those big birthdays:  21st birthday parties, 30th birthday parties, 40th birthday parties…heck bring Grandma for her 100th, she’ll love it.

And the best part?  Twisted Texas makes it easy on the party planner:

  • Private tour and public tour options available, depending on your budget and group size
  • Guests can book individually online so one person doesn’t have to foot the entire bill
  • We reserve seats for your group so everyone can sit together on the bus on our public tours
  • You have a real band to help drown out your tone deaf friends while singing Happy Birthday
  • All you have to do is show up!  We have the rest covered.

2. Throw some axes

While you may not think beer and sharp objects to together like peanut butter & jelly…they definitely do at Urban Axes.  Beginners welcome, training included, it’s a great way to compete against your friends and family.

3. Cruise the lake with a party boat

When it’s hot, our favorite thing is to rent a boat for a lake party or float the river on a tube with a cooler of drinks.  For Lake Austin Boat Rentals & Lake Travis Boat RentalsFloat On Boat Rentals has great rates, friendly staff, and the highest rated boat rental company in Austin.

4. Take a food tour

Food tours are the perfect way to discover new restaurants & food trucks while having a relaxing time with your crew.  While there are many companies offering food tours around town, none compares to the Twisted Texas Brunch Bus, Austin’s only food tour with a live band on board the bus!  We’ve got private and public options, as well as a small group Way Out Austin Food Tour and a handful of new walking options like the ‘704 Boozy Brunch Walk.

5. Craft the day away

Surprisingly great for gals and guys alike (with a handful of more “masculine” focused crafts on the menu), Upstairs Circus is a nice change of pace from just chilling at a bar.  Of course you can drink, they have a full bar onsite and a handful of fun, rotating seasonal cocktails.  You can bring your own food, so whether you’re feeling charcuterie or chicken wings, it’s all allowed.

6. Be one of the first to check out Austin’s new arcade

New for 2020, the Cidercade combines two of our favorite things…cider and vintage pinball games!

7. Wine tasting in the Texas Hill Country

Get out of town for a beautiful day in the Hill Country.  There are plenty of wineries, distilleries, olive oil tasting rooms, and shops to explore…the only question is how you will choose.  To make the day hassle-free, check out our top-rated wine tasting tour.

8. Eat Texas BBQ

Sure we’ve all eaten BBQ…but have you ever eaten 4 places in 4 hours?  Our Texas BBQ tours offer you two awesome options:  exploring historic Lockhart, TX and where BBQ began OR seeing how Austin BBQ joints have crafted BBQ into some unique eats.

9. Do yoga with wine in hand

Do Yoga, Drink Wine…at the same time! Vino Vinyasa classes bring together vinyasa-based yoga and fun wine facts through creative yoga poses. Each hour-long educational class ends with a comparative wine tasting, inviting you to mindfully taste what’s in your glass while applying what you learned through the poses.

10. Take a walking tour of your city

Dig deeper into some of your favorite neighborhoods, or those you’ve missed out on, in a covid-friendly outdoor food & drink walking tour.  The all new Twisted Texas Walking Tours are an easy way to eat & drink through Austin while keeping it safe & socially distanced.
