1. Freedmen's 2402 San Gabriel St, Austin, TX 78705

This is not your average barbecue joint. Freedman's has a patio and outdoor beer garden that offers a variety of brews on tap as well as a retro soda shop-inspired cocktail list. If you're not a fan of the throwbacks, the $3 tacos, tamales and whiskey of the month happy hour should entice you. Check out this vintage-y, saloon style spot near UT for rollicking night out on the town.

Just a few blocks from the mansion where another famous W rested his head as governor, the W's Austin branch has helped define the downtown 2nd St District, serving as a magnet for more youthful out-of-towners. Their WET Bar offers poolside sips and its Living Room Bar and TRACE has a menu that is updated frequently with new cocktails.

The husband/wife Boston expats behind Bonneville are dishing serious eats and twists on classic cocktails in a succulent-festooned, whitewashed brick space that's so lakeside, it's worth a fantastic voyage.
