This bar is clean with awesome vibes, great staff and AMAZING crafted drinks. The patio has fans and misters to keep those hot summer evenings at bay. Highly recommend!

Nestled down on East 6th and Chicon, this indoor/outdoor cocktail bar is a refreshing respite from the Austin elements ( be it the heat or waves of Hipsters and skinny jeans). Sit inside, sit outside, put one foot in either. Enjoy some Thai cuisine from...More

Whisler's gets a 10/10 in my book. I arranged to have a private event here and reserved the upstairs room, a small but cool space that serves as a mezclaría with dozens of types of mezcal. My event ended up having a smaller turnout than...More
