The Drafting Room
609 Davis Street
New bar on Rainey St and new favorite spot for a happy hour drink. Lots of beer & wine on tap, tons of seating out front and really neat drinking glasses. Highly recommend this for a happy hour spot!!
Dive Bar & Lounge
1703 Guadalupe St
A hole-in-the-wall where such a thing is desperately needed, Dive is my go-to spot when I'm in the area.
1700 E 6th St
Without question, the best jukebox in town. It's not even debatable. Cheap drinks and amazing food trailers to boot. Take a walk on the East Side.
615 Red River St
Sick of bump and grind? Barbarella is the place for you. Thursday's you can twist and shout to oldies. What could be better than that? The fact that you can party until 3 AM! Cheers Barbs! ?
Hops and Grain
507 Calles St
Great Eastside brewery where you can "buy" beer with a purchase of a glass that comes with four drinks. Small and cozy beer hall where you can play games or just hang outside on the patio
4119 Guadalupe St
It's a wall of wine! Amazing wine bar with a great staff
V Nightclub & Lounge
409 Colorado St
V lounge is one of my favorite venues. It's got a huge dance floor and always has some of the best djes performing. We came here for a Sxsw showcase.
2027 Anchor Ln
This little-known spot is a great east side hang. Come for the Moscow Mules; stay for the snacks and patio vibe.
The Driskill Bar
166 E 6th St
An oasis located on wild 6th street. Walk up the grand staircase & into the cowboy-chic bar. If you don't order a dirty Tito's martini and truffle popcorn, you're doing it wrong! Live music at 6pm!
1109 S Lamar Blvd
Bubble, Bitches, and bingo. The best girls night out in Austin
Blind Pig Pub
317 E 6th St
There is never a dull moment on 6th street!!!! The bars are always packed and the drinks are cheap ?
Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.
1305 W Oltorf St
This isn't "just" a bar-they serve awesome pizza and salads and live music nearly seven days a week. They are also very involved with Austin Pets Alive. A great time for the whole family/ages!
77 Rainey St
Great happy hour and outside patio! Dog friendly. Recommend the margarita or sweet tea.
1004 west 24th st
Great spot to watch sports, enjoy beers on tap, and grab some snacks. Great outdoor seating and decor.
2500-2502 Manor Road
Only place in town I know that that serves a poutine with my craft beer!
Rio Rooftop Pool Lounge & RSTR
601 Rio Grande St
This multi-level sports bar, lounge, and rooftop pool has a great corner spot and hordes of security, giving it a Vegas nightclub feel.
1914 E 6th St
Gardner (an amazing restaurant) is one of my favorite ATX happy hour spots too. The small bar and patio are beautiful and secluded and the cocktails are so creative, beautiful, and delicious.
Porter Ale House and Gastropub
3715 S 1st St
Modern, chic inside with tasty grub from the kitchen. 26 beers on tap - cocktails are excellent as well! Try out the sliders and pretzels with house mustard.
Jester King Craft Brewery
13005 Fitzhugh Rd
Very scenic spot to have some delishh beers and enjoy nice weather. Sucks you have to wait an hour and a half in line for pizza/beer though...
