Fresh Caught Eastern Flavor in Austin

fresh

Japan thrived on their seafood cuisine for years and perfected the flavors so that anyone can enjoy it. Thankfully, here at Retreat at Barton Creek, you don’t have to take a flight to Tokyo to get a taste of great fresh sushi; there are plenty of Japanese restaurants right by our luxury apartments in Austin to satisfy any salmon roll craving.

Uchi – aptly named “house” in its native tongue – is a Japanese fine dining chain in Texas dedicated to serving the freshest fish and seafood in all their sashimi and sushi platters. Their location in Austin is only two and a half miles away from our luxury apartments, meaning that you can drive to your reserved table in under ten minutes. Open for dinner every evening, their expansive menu features all the best flavors of Japan. Try sixteen decadent sushi and sashimi options, ranging sake Atlantic salmon to kinoko mushrooms to even unagi freshwater eel. Not in the mood for raw food? Enjoy their sasami yaki chicken breast, or their biendo tempura shrimp spring roll with nuoc mom and red grape. Pair up your sushi and other entrees with their selection of fine crafted sake or wine. Mix things up with their daily specials and find a new favorite to savor. Finally, don’t forget to finish with a sweet dessert like the calamansi tart with ice cream or their chocolate candy bar.

Change up the way you eat fresh fish close to home at the Retreat at Barton Creek. Reserve a tour of our luxury apartments in Austin and a table at Uchi for an unforgettable dining experience.

Take a Refreshing Dive in Austin

Swimming is a fun pastime that many Texans learn to appreciate. It’s the best outdoor activity that you can enjoy without overheating from the hot summer temperatures, and it’s great for both exercise and playtime. Our luxury apartments at the Retreat at Barton Creek hold no lack of swimming opportunities, though one particular pool in Austin stands out from the rest.

The Barton Springs Pool is Austin’s largest public swimming attraction, nestled within the expansive Zilker Park, and it’s one of the highest rated places to explore on TripAdvisor. Open all year round – with the exception of Thursdays – this gigantic three-acre pool features fresh spring water that reaches as far as 18’ below the surface; however, there are also shallow areas perfect for young children, novice swimmers, and casual wading, as well as lifeguards during peak hours to ensure swimmer safety. The water stays at a constant 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit, even during the winter, so it’s a perfect complement to the hot Texas sun. Grab a few friends and wade around while keeping up conversation, use a floaty and drift across the surface, or get your heart pumping with some intensive laps. As summer draws closer, the Barton Springs Pool will start requiring admission for visitors during peak hours: $5 for adults for single admission, $3 for older kids twelve to seventeen, and $2 for seniors sixty-two and up along with kids one to eleven. You can purchase season passes or punch cards at any time if you’re a frequent visitor.

Enjoy the best activity of summer with a fantastic pool at the Retreat at Barton Creek. Come see our luxury apartments in Austin and stop by the Barton Springs Pool before the warm days come to an end.
