The CITY Guides: ROUND TOP, TX

COME FOR THE SHOPPING, STAY FOR THE FUN


Get ready to Round Top! Known far and wide for its legendary shopping scene, this Texas gem has more to offer than meets the eye. From vintage treasures to artisanal finds, Round Top is a shopper's paradise. But shopping isn't all this place has to offer. Stick around for food, drinks, vibrant culture, and endless fun that make this place a true Texas treasure. Come for the shopping, stay for the good times – Round Top's got it all. 


WHERE WE'RE STAYING

Staying in town is a game-changer. It means you can start your shopping early, and keep the party going late! Last year we had the unique opportunity to pop up at Hotel Bebe, as well as stay on the property.  We heard a rumor there may still be some stays available during the Spring show, hurry and book, they won't be available for long! Located directly across from Marburger Farms and just a short drive from the town square, it's an amazing setup! Our founder, Lizzy, stayed at Wander Inn last Fall and has not stopped raving about it since! We also have friends who book their reservations at The Cotton Pearl and The Frenchie as far in advance as they can, all of these spots are centrally located and as nice as it gets in Round Top, TX!



WHERE WE'RE EATING

The food in Round Top is something we look forward to every year. The town offers a little bit of everything, and we promise: you somehow can't get sick of alternating between all of these spots! For the finest dining you can find in RT, a sit-down dinner at Lulu's is the move. The pasta dishes are phenomenal and the ambiance is amazing! Reservations are strongly encouraged, this is a MUST in Round Top! A hop, skip, and jump across the town square is Merritt Meat Company, formerly Round Top Smokehouse. The newest restaurant under the belt of pitmaster Leonard Botello IV, who also owns Hotel Bebe alongside his amazing wife Abbie Byrom Botello, seeks to honor the late Lee Merritt Ellis, a Round Top icon. A bit farther down the road towards Marburger Farms is Bader Ranch, a shopping and dining destination. Here you'll find the converted airstream serving amazing margaritas Lady Elaine, as well as an amazing fixed menu courtesy of Y Comida. The latest restaurant concept to grace Round Top is Boon & Companyan amazing space filled with fine groceries, amazing food and even a trendy new upstairs bar! Some other honorable mentions that can be found in the heart of town are Royers Round Top Cafè, The Garden Co. Restaurant, and Round Top Brewing & Kitchen.  

WHERE WE'RE TOASTING

Round Top is an extremely celebratory place. After the shopping ceases for the day, the real fun begins! There are a number of places to enjoy a drink with friends, and they are all centrally located within half a mile of each other. Lulu's is one of the best restaurants in town, but it also has a gorgeous bar where you can get a great martini. Just around the corner is Prost on Block 29, the best place for pizza and a burger as well as a lively outdoor wine bar where friends can share a bottle, or two! Finally, the crown jewel of Round Top nightlife is Ellis Motel. Located in the heart of the town square, Ellis boasts multiple rooms that can fit groups large and small as well as an extensive craft cocktail list. Consider this the place to mingle with shoppers, merchants, locals, and anyone who may be passing through. It's where you'll fins us almost every night of the show!  

WHERE TO FIND CITY BOOTS
