Austins Top Places To Spot Celebrities

Austins Top Places To Spot Celebrities

It’s no secret that Austin is a hot spot for celeb sightings. Matthew McConaughey, Elijah Wood and Richard Linklater all call Austin home, and celebs love visiting during festival such as SXSW or ACL. It’s not uncommon to come across a film or TV shoot as well. If you’re hoping to discreetly bump into a famous person, these locations are where you need to check out first.

Matthew McConaugheyUT Football Games

If you’d like to see Matthew McConaughey in his true Texas ruggedness, head on over to a Longhorn football game. The University of Texas at Austin alum is still a big fan of his alma mater, and he frequently shows up, with a very questionable beard, at games or campus events. Just recently, McConaughey was filmed giving the Longhorn boys a very McConaughey pep talk.

Whole Foods

Ryan Gosling

We all know that Whole Foods, in any city, is where you go to spot beautiful people. In Austin, the most popular Whole Foods location is the company’s corporate headquarters, located on Sixth Street at Lamar Boulevard.

This author has seen Justin Long and Kristen Bell milling about, while friends have claimed seeing Robert Plant (a former Austin resident), Ryan Gosling and Drew Barrymore picking up groceries. If there is a film shoot going on in town, chances are the cast will be hanging out here.

Guero’s Taco Bar

Located on Austin’s bustling South Congress Avenue, this longtime Tex-Mex landmark is a popular restaurant for visitors of both the famous and non-famous kind.

Guero’s own fame was catapulted when Quentin Tarantino used it in the opening scene of his pulpy “Death Proof.” Rumor has it that Tarantino ate here often.

Alamo Drafthouse

Austin’s beloved movie-and-dinner chain, the Alamo Drafthouse, is one of the premier places to spot celebs. Why? Because the screenings are just so darn fun. Actors and directors love showing their work to Austin’s film-loving audience, and the Alamo makes sure to put on a festive event for each showing.

This innovative chain has hosted “Back to the Future” screenings with Christopher Lloyd, a “Day of the Dead” screening with director George A. Romero and a surprise Star Trek reboot screening hosted by Leonard Nimoy.
