Kung Fu Saloon

Kung Fu Saloon is one of Austin's iconic West Sixth bars! Pickle shots are a must!
The White Horse

Show off your two step at this swinging honky tonk on the east side. If you don't know how, one of the regulars will show you around the dance floor. Great music, cheap beer, taco truck out back.
1315 S Congress Ave
Best local music selection in Austin. If you listen to Outlaw Country on Sirius radio, this is the bar for you. Expect a friendly, veteran waitstaff and great music to drink and dance to.
SquareRut Kava Bar
6000 S Congress Ave
Where coffee meets beer!! Earthy tasting drink with calming benefits.
615 Red River St
Barbs is easily in my top 5 ATX clubs! The atmosphere captures the essence of Austin on all nights, but my favorite night is when people start grooving to the old Beatles tunes on Thursdays.
10212 Manchaca Rd
The best Sunday Funday spot in south Austin is the front yard at the Moontower. Bags, washers, volleyball, live music, good food, cold beer... what more could you ask for not to mention this weather!
Flying Saucer Draught Emporium
815 W 47th St
Tons of beers to choose from! Drink enough, and they'll throw you a plate party!
BD Riley's Irish Pub
204 E 6th St
I stopped in here to see Eric Tessmer play. The food is great and an awesome selection of Irish beers! Waitstaff were super friendly. A great pub feel amongst the crazy dirty sixth.
610 Nueces St
They book some great bands and the outdoor patio is really spacious. It's one of few places you can hear yourself think!

Bout Time II

This is 3 snaps in a circle FAAAABULOUS! Located in N. Austin, this is a fun and accepting gay bar that welcome people from all walks of life. Great drink prices, fierce music, pool tables, and more.
Hi Hat Public House
2121 E 6th St
Taco Tuesday at Hi Hat where $10 gets you two tacos and a pint of delicious beer.
422 Congress Ave
Fantastic off-Sixth club! At the corner of Congress and Fifth, rooftop bars like this are hard to beat. They play mostly local dj's, and the music isn't the only thing getting well-mixed there!
Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.
1305 W Oltorf St
Tasty lip-smacking at ABGB Co. Lots of beers to choose from.
Draft Shack Oyster Bar
11920 Domain Dr
If you LOVE oysters as much as I do you should definitely visit the Oyster&Draft shack within the Domain Whole Foods! Personally, I have found it to be my secret lil happy place ❤️
912 Red River St
The Mohawk is possibly the best venue in Austin. There are two stages and three bars. You can find a great band or a fun event happening here any day of the week, funk & soul happy hour every Friday!
69 Rainey St
When down on Rainey, stop by Javelina for a quick bite and great drinks! Sunday specials are not to be missed with a good Bloody Mary on the menu.
2716 Guadalupe St
Great bar near the UT campus! Love the happy hour prices and the rooftop view. Love Goat is a hopping part of the campus scene.
1950 S Interstate 35
You'll drive past Whip In and wonder what it amounts to, which is actually a liquor store, bar, live music venue, and server of bomb dot com Indian dishes. Very relaxed, very Austin.
709 E 6th St
The Waller Creek light display on 6th street is stunning. Lights line the pathway along the creek leading into a tunnel under a bridge - first time the tunnel has been open in 20 years!
