If you dig deep into the “lore” behind Geraldine’s, you’ll find that it’s actually named after a famous Guinea hen that used to roam Rainey Street, back when the buildings were all houses and finding street parking was the norm. These days, the name is about all it has in common with “old” Austin, but it does provide some great views of the street and Downtown from the fourth floor of the Hotel Van Zandt. On the inside stage, you’ll find live music most nights, and outside there’s a pool and accompanying bar. Either way, you’ll be able to order from a menu of cocktails at a quality that’s definitely a few notches above the typical “hotel bar” standard.
