Located on the top floor of the Chateau Victoria downtown, Vista 18 is primarily a martini and wine bar with 360-degree floor-to-ceiling views of Victoria that are the city's best. But it's also a hotel restaurant specializing in fresh seafood, with a menu by Executive Chef Garrett Schack, a local television star with his own weekly cooking show. There's live music Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights from 8 to 11:30pm, with local duos and trios playing folk, jazz, and blues from the corner behind the bar. It's an often stunning musical accompaniment to a night of excellent eating and drinking.
