Bars & Clubs in Central Austin, TX

Spider House

Spider House

Austin, TX

A weird, hip café with happy hour ranging from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.!

Hyde Park Bar & Grill

Hyde Park Bar & Grill

Austin, TX

Homey, welcoming & yummy are the words that come to mind when describing this American grill. An absolute must is their buttermilk fries.

Hopfields

Hopfields

Austin, TX

A French gastropub, dude-style: Hopfields may serve pretty food, but that doesn't mean its girly. This craft beer-filled bar is refreshingly gender-neutral, with an unfussy (but delish) food menu, and decor that relies on burlap, wooden benches, and steampunk light fixtures. I'm finding myself wander in more and more, taking advantage not only of the cheese board, but the intimate patio out back.

Spider House. If you are looking for Austin weird / cool, this is your spot. Spider House is a Quirky hang out that has everything you need in one place: a spacious outdoor patio, full bar with great beer on tap, good coffee, a juice bar (the Tikal is awesome), live music at night, a crepe trailer, a tattoo parlor, & tshirt shop. … read more


Spider House. Good ol' Spider House. Every time I say I've grown out of it, I come crawling back, drinking or coffee-ing or laptoping. There's an eternal Summer of Love vibe here that always beckons my return. Try the Sam-I-Am-Wich, a shockingly good lunch that involves a croissant, basil pecan pesto eggs, and a slice of hot honeyed ham.… read more


Spider House. One of the best places to study, chill, grab a beer and hang out all night. I love the garage sale decor and the grilled cheese sandwich!… read more
