10 Best Austin Bars

  • 121 Pickle Rd, Austin • South Austin
    Elexa Martinez - The boozy coffee is literally everything! The regular coffee is superb as well. They have an incredible outside space with chickens, a pond and the mexican food trailer is so delicious. I can find myself spending hours at cosmic with friends or on a date.
    Liz Stella - It's great to have more places like this in Austin where you can get adult beverages or coffee but it still be family-friendly. Great outdoor space with food trucks, plus live music sometimes too. Always popular for all ages!
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - One of my top 2 favorite coffee houses in south Austin. Has a full bar and plenty of shaded outdoor area. Parking sucks!!!!

  • 503 Colorado St, Austin • Downtown
    Liz Stella - This is a delightfully dark and welcoming place for an after-dinner nightcap. I discovered this place a few years ago and it's been a preferred spot for 1 or 2 cocktails before bedtime. A lovely vintage-style interior, makes you feel like you're in a '60s movie. They have an extensive menu with non-alcoholic options too, plus some "fuel" so you can snack a little while sipping.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - a hidden bar. a true speakeasy.

    Liz Stella - This is a great event space and bar/café that's an essential place to visit in Downtown Austin. Very cool vibes inside, I've seen live music, performances, album launches, screenings... you name it. They also have art murals outside for those that need selfies. A cool place to go, period.
    Dagan Martinez-Vargas - Fantastic vibe. Like a modern day version of where Sinatra would hang out. Great art all over the wall. It is so Austin!
