Reviews for Foundation Bar

The closest thing to perfect! – It's hard to give a brief description of how awesome this place is, but I will try. The music sets it apart from the teeny-boppers' clubs and DJ Dan knows exactly how to complement the style and atmosphere of the place with unbelievable mixes and beats. I have never met more gracious hosts than the people at Foundation. They really are the most reputable managers, talented bartenders, and courteous doormen in town. And by the way, I think they all just happen to fall into the gorgeous category. The drinks are about average price for the "warehouse district," but sometimes it takes a while to get up to the bar, so in that case I head to the front and the coctail waitresses have a talent for getting your drinks quicker. The loft area is perfect for people watching over the railing and it also has a slightly different ambiance than the rest of the club. This is the place to see and be seen, probably not for the introverted type. This is the one and only club in Austin that I am completely loyal to... if I am out, I go there, even if just for five minutes... it guarantees me a good night!

Well-crafted bar reflects the style of high-end metropolitan nightlife. – In Short
The sheer size of this Warehouse District hot spot suggests opulence and comfort. Layers of hangout options (banquettes up front, couches in the center, standing room in back) allow room for all. Curved, boldly striped walls flank a massive circular bar that stocks everything from top-shelf tequila to domestic beers. A dimly lit, spacious upstairs offers a bird's-eye view of the urban professionals below as well as a second, less-crowded bar.
