Unchanged – I visited Lovejoys after a night of bar hopping on 6th with a few friend of mine. We loved it!!! The feeling was just right.. it seemed like it had been untouched by the trendiness that is 6th street. It is just a little grungy bar that feels like it came straight out of the early 90's. Great beer selection, friendly bartenders, the crowd is early 20's to early 30's. Great Bar!!!!
Dark, noisy and pleasantly ramshackle. – In Short
The crowd is generally a mix of alt-rock types, thrift-store denizens and coffeehouse intellectuals, and the decor consists of some rundown booths and an array of comfy Goodwill-type chairs and couches. Though not an especially large space, there are two separate bars. A casket-turned-table and a pair of tongue-in-cheek religious murals give the place a goth touch. Lovejoy's serves about a dozen wines and nearly 100 beers, including a rotating selection of five draft homebrews.
Guinness and cappucino – This is one of the few places in Texas where you can order a Guinne-cino, which is a pint of Guinness with a shot of espresso. Highly recommended if you want to relax and rev up at the same time. This was the original energy drink before all those store-bought brands started doing it!
Shook up, but in a good way – Pleasently unassuming bar with funky furnishings and average craft brew. Attracts the 21-28 college crowd, and does it well. Check out the manhole cover tabletop if it's still there.
laid back – Good coffe, friendly people staff and clientle. Felt like an instant regular
Read this for the real deal – This bar is the nucleus of the underground culture in Austin. No yuppies allowed. This is an Austin original. Hopefully they won't build a damn hotel over this place. If you crave plastic existence either go to the Brown bar or go to Dallas or Houston. Otherwise, for those who crave real down to earth people, fantastic underground music and great beer I would be compelled to say: "Welcome".
My favorite watering hole in Austin – Friendly staff, great tasting, affordable brews, and the best dang jukebox anywhere. And, there's always that coffin...
