Zilker Brewing Company
1701 E 6th st.
New brewery on the east side! Delicious, but limited selection of beers. Very open space with garage doors that are normally open. Try the honey saison or the ESB.
3009 Industrial Ter
Two words-Fire. Eagle. The best go-to IPA in Austin! Easily. ABW has an amazing space and a great tasting deal. $10 for an ABW pint glass AND three fills! Also-the seasonal sour on tap is everything.
Pleasant Storage Tasting Room
208 W 4th St
Amazing tapas to accompany mostly rum based drinks. They have a full bar, but rum is their specialty. I was impressed with the drinks, even as a non-rum drinker. 4th st district. Must try the popcorn!
Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.
1305 W Oltorf St
Your local brewpub centered in South Austin that offers great food and top quality craft beer. Stop by for a Butternut Squash pizza and a Big Momma Red, a delicious hoppy red ale.
1816 E 6th St
A break from the crowds on the other end of E. 6th, and some fine drinks! Really chill patio with a relaxed, friendly vibe. Grab a friend, a cocktail, and enjoy the temperate Spring nights in Austin
The Rooftop on 6th
403 E 6th St
Intimate rustic feel in this pub. The vibe seems very social whereas the staff treat you like you've been coming for years. Very generous drink portions as well!
Independence Brewing Co.
3913 Todd Ln
Beer flights, live bands, tasty rotating food trucks. Their newly remodeled tap room is perfect for enjoying the hot summer days under the shade. No dogs allowed inside unfortunately.
408 Josephine St
House wine is in my top three favorite wine bars in the city of Austin. Affordable wine, live music, and table side s'mores in a unique atmosphere in a small house off Barton Springs and South Lamar.
92 Rainey St
Awesome bar on Rainey Street! Always friendly service and chill atmosphere. Bring your Bungalow glass on Wednesday for a deal!
Water To Wine
3300 W. Anderson Lane #304
Make your own wine, buy customized bottles (like I did for my wife), or just have a happy tasting! The staff are full of good info and the wine is by far the best in town.
Petes Dueling Piano Bar
421 E 6th St
Great place to get drunk and listen to piano
The Buzz Mill
1505 Town Creek Dr
Great, cozy place tucked away in the SE part of town. Excellent coffee, seasonal beers, and an assortment of handmade infusions make this a great place to meet with friends, take a date, or study.
Firehouse Hostel and Lounge
605 Brazos St
Amazing cocktails made by mixologists, not bartenders and an amazing ambience. Good happy hour prices for those working downtown and can't beat Wednesday's when they have live music.
Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon
5434 Burnet Rd
If you are free on a Sunday afternoon, go see Dale Watson playing at Chicken Shit Bingo-- it's an Austin institution that you have to see to believe.
Hi Tunes Karaoke
911 W Anderson Ln
Hi-tunes Karaoke is super fun for you and a group of friends. You are in a room with only people you know so no need to be shy. Good song selection of oldies and top40. Reasonably priced too :)
207 E 53rd St
I have tried a handful of cocktails at Drink. Well. and I am never disappointed. As a whiskey lover, the Fancy Free is my fav! This is a classy little neighborhood bar with a very friendly waitstaff.
2039 Airport Blvd
Best bar in Austin? Possibly!! Have you ever seen an 85yr old jam at the mic? Live Music Capitol of the world! She rocked the place down!!!
Apothecary Cafe and Wine Bar
4800 Burnet Rd
Apothecary is such a cozy neighborhood wine bar. The staff is genuinely kind, and knowledgeable in their ever changing wine list, and food menu. I highly recommend checking it out. it has never disappointed.
Magnolia Cafe South
1920 S Congress Ave
Open 24 hours. Always. Sober breakfast? Drunken dinner? Whenever! Tourist? Try the "mag mud". Vegetarian? Veggie Reuben with extra avocado. Want Tex Mex to go? Breakfast tacos.
Little Longhorn Saloon
5434 Burnet Rd
Chicken-shit Bingo. Where the chicken goes, it's a build-up to the B-I-N-G-O the chicken is well fed and cared for.
