2. Draft Pick Sports Bar 1620 E Riverside Dr, Austin, TX 78741 (Oltorfeast Riverside)

Nestled into the Amli apartments on Riverside, Draft's the latest project from the guy behind Texican Cafe: a tastefully wood-paneled sports-watcher's paradise whose 17 flatscreens include a 226in monster they claim's the biggest in the 787.

3. Isla 208 W 4th St, Austin, TX 78701 (Warehouse District)

From the team behind the city's beloved Péché, Isla -- conveniently located right next door -- brings a taste of the islands to the Warehouse District from its colorful, breezy post on West 4th Street. Dishes are inflected by Peruvian and Caribbean tradition, with menu items like anticuchos and jerk pork chops. Cocktails are tiki-inspired (the mai tai is a must-have), and the rum selection is extensive; enjoy it in cocktail form or by the flight from your post in the tropics of Austin's Isla.

4. The Jackalope 404 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701 (Dirty 6th)

Many dive bars have burgers, but few have burgers this epic: flame grilled and piled high on a toasted bun with premium toppings like smoked bacon, brie cheese, and carmelized onions, they're plenty sizable and a good bang for your buck ($10). Cheap signature shots, tunes from the house DJ, and a giant jackalope that you can mount merely sweeten the deal.
