Its a great happy-hour hangout. Good looking Austin business professionals.
Great Place – I love this place for meeting friends and having a good old time.
Great Drinks, Fun Atmosphere – I love going to Cedar Street, I love the music, the people, the drinks, that place rocks! I've never had a bad experience.
Good drinks bad service – we went there with a small group of 6. the drinks were good ( eh ) but the service was horrible!! for a Tuesday.
Thats all Im going to say

Terrible Service - Neglected Customers – We arrived to Peche at 8pm. It was half empty. We thought great, we would eat fast and meet our friends for drinks elsewhere. The waitress took our drinks order pretty promptly. I got a MaiTai and my husband got a Manhattan (was good). The Mai Tai was bitter (too much lime and not enough pineapple). We ordered appetizers, which took a very long time -Sliders very tasty, Crab, Half burger and and Pork on French bread . All were very good. We then were told that our entre would be coming soon. We waited until 10pm and no entre. Even worse than that, the waitress brought food to our table but messed up, came back took the food to another table. I heard the table behind say they would just get the check and leave, and not wait any longer. The waitress told us five times "your order will be here soon I promise". It never came. We couldn't even get her attention to get the bill until 10pm. The owner walked around the restaurant, but didn't even acknowledge us or the other tables that were waiting so long. It was pure neglect. Undoubtly, the worse service we have ever had in Austin.
Austin's first absinthe bar brings old school cocktails and French bistro fare to the Warehouse district. – In Short
The old Malaga space has been transformed with black chandeliers, a bottle-filled bar area accented by rolling metal ladders and color splashes of green (a given considering the lounge's featured libation). The focus here is on the classic cocktails, including their signature absinthe cocktail poured from ornate glass dispensers at the bar. Sample what the menu calls the first American cocktail, a Sazerac, or the first cocktail created for a woman, a Pink Lady. Keep the spins at bay with a sampling from the bistro-style menu: hand cut pomme frites with aioli, mussels in absinthe tarragon broth, fried frog legs with buffalo sauce, Monte Cristo or croque madame sandwiches, and classic coq au vin.
Great martinis and entertainment! – There is a reason why this place gets crowded and the that reason would be the Spazmatics on Wednesday night! Other than the Spazmatics, the best bartender in Austin works here and his name would be Sanchez! Find him and you will never opt for another bartender ever. Just tell him what flavors you like and he'll craft the perfect martini for you. Some of my favorite drinks (the 'Marilyn Monroe' and 'Berry Shizzle') were made up by him and can't not walk down 4th street without stopping by to get one before the night is over!
The atmosphere is chill on nights other than Wednesday. If you're ever on 4th, don't pass up this bar!
Tasty Drinks! – OMG The martinis are amazing here, and if you don't know which one to get (there is a HUGE list..), you can just tell the bartender what flavors you like and he will craft one that suits your taste. The martinis are strong and perfect. I really love this place and there is great music on Wednesday nights when the Spazmatics perform!
Some people are jerks – I love this bar. Everybody who works at this bar has always been very nice and helpful. After watching the staff have to deal with grown men and women who are so drunk that they can hardly stand, I feel for them. People who work at bars work long hours for spotty pay and constantly have to deal with rude, disrespectful people, who seem to think the world revolves around them. I have seen people openly insult doormen, who are trying to help them. I have also seen drunk patrons curse at bartenders and act like children. Bar jobs are hard jobs and it is unfortunate that so many people are incapable of being human beings to the people who have to serve them.
