Trudy's Restaurant & Bar

Trudy's Restaurant & Bar

Austin, TX

Great after work happy hour spot for the North Austin crowd. Must jars are the Mexican Martini, the migas, and do not miss the Friday lunch buffet.

Easy Tiger

Easy Tiger

Austin, TX

Gorgeously bronzed pretzels and delicious sausage. In particular try the game sausage.

Thirsty Planet Brewing

Thirsty Planet Brewing

Austin, TX

Cool little brewery on the SW side of Austin near Jester King. Check out their Saturday tours, beer and the Texas hill country. They make several one-offs and your best chance is to try them at the brewery!

Pour House Pub

Pour House Pub

Austin, TX

When downtown bar hopping isn't in the plans, slow down and head to the Pour house for a relaxing night of drinks with friends. A large, beautiful outdoor patio with covered seating and great beer on tap await. Hang out and play corn hole outside under a large Texas Live Oak.

Mean Eyed Cat. Named after a Johnny Cash song, this ramshackle bar is so delightfully out of place on fancy west 5th. With creaky wooden floors, broken in (and/or broken) furniture, and a jug band/singer-songwriter/hillbilly music lineup, it draws an eclectic crowd almost every night of the week. And before 2004, it was Cut-Rite Chain Saws, where Dennis Hopper visits in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. … read more


Yellow Jacket Social Club. Yellow Jacket may seem like a rundown bar next to the railroad tracks, but the food and good ole vibes make it an East Austin favorite. The weekend brunch is something to tell your friends about, especially the shrimp and grits!… read more


Second Bar + Kitchen. Everyone loved the avocado fundido, and their inventiveness doesn't stop there. Buffalo fried pickles, and tons of carnivorous delicacies make this small, upscale place well worth trying.… read more
