Nice atmosphere and decor but a little pricey if you just want to go out and drink. Went here on Halloween night and got their themed drinks which were all very tasty but not strong enough for how expensive they were. Basically $15 dollars a drink and after two I was hardly even buzzed. I mean I understand the hefty price tag for Hollywood, but for that much I also expect a little more kick to my drink. This place does have a great view though with a nice fire pit on the outside patio and they were projecting old black and white horror movie trailers on one of the big walls. The cabanas by the pool are also nice to lounge in but overall, you're not going to a club to just lay around. The dance area was extremely cramped, crowded and even standing NEAR a reserved table was a no-no as some tough guy told us to move along. Where the hell am I supposed to dance then? Guess I'm just not hot enough for Hollywood. Overall, not bad if you DO have a reserved table with bottle service. They probably treat you great; but if you are unfortunate enough to just be a regular looking for something to drink, I'd say go anywhere else but here. I think I would be happier at a dive bar with cheap, strong drinks than here, where I almost have to take out a loan to have a nice time.

Love being able to get BBQ at the airport. Food is good; definitely not as special as what you can find at their main location outside of Austin city proper. But for a fast-food type location in the airport, it's pretty darn good. Since they're located AFTER security, you can buy their special BBQ sauce and stuff it in your carry on luggage to your next destination!

Reader should be aware that I am giving this place five stars based solely on the fact that the DJ played Another One Bites The Dust immediately after I requested it: done. Queen has been played, we can all go home, it was awesome. 80's Night! I've been trying to find a good 80's Night forEVER in Boston and just never stumbled on anything worthwhile. But this little place was perfect --- no cover charge because my friend and I squeaked in under the margin (went in at 9:49 pm Saturday), people actually DANCED, and the music was a really fun mix of 80's a sprinkling of random Other Songs From Eras Way Less Full Of Madonna. My rum and coke was a reasonable $5.50, and the bartender had a cute accent of indistinguishable origin (never call an Aussie a Brit or vice versa, they'll have your head!). But best of all, I asked him for "something blue" and he offered to make me a Blue Hawaiian with curacao, something I often ask for and rarely find in Boston bars because we're such big freaking Puritans! I got to lift my beautiful blue glass above my head while bopping my head in ecstasy to Jump Around, which made me think of that Robin Williams movie Mrs. Doubtfire for some reason. The crowd is a mixture of college kids, townies, random older people, a few unbelievable dancers, weirdos in black cowboy hats and cat ears, and hipsters that think they're too cool to dance/reluctantly start dancing ironically/eventually embrace the awesomeness of the 80's with some dangerously enthusiastic moves. Not one guy tried to disgustingly hump my leg. It was a really fun time.
