Punch Bowl Social – review

A disappointing bar/restaurant with bowling, karaoke, and other games.

Austin isn’t a perfect place. The three most common complaints I hear about Austin is that it’s overcrowded, pretentious, and expensive. While I’m not sure I’d agree with any of those adjectives for the city as a whole, they do describe Punch Bowl Social pretty well.

Tapas. This food is the star of Spain’s nightlife. The way that Spaniards eat and drink are very busy and is simply an overload in flavors. I personally don’t know what tapas are before and how you are supposed to eat it. In some places or countries, tapas are this little snacks somewhat like an appetizer for the meal. But tapas are more like a tradition, a way of living in Spain. Basically, tapas are small portions of food that is served together with your drinks in the bar. You can also order big servings of tapas which are called Raciones.
