South Lamar's mistiest patio is a venerable HQ for sports fans, with all the games shown on their armada of flatscreens and accompanied by Sunday specials like a $3 sangria or Bloody.
Named for Dallas, in Austin, and one of very few places running drink specials on Saturday nights. Until 10 pm, some drinks will only cost you $3.00.
The Draught House has 45yrs of pint-pouring under its belt and even dishes out free brats on Saturdays.
Living in Downtown can be expensive, and Liberty Tavern understands that. Your 787101-78706 zip code ID can get you half price drinks at the Downtown watering hole on Tuesday nights.
The SoCo Zen is now a higher-tech Japanese concept in which each table's equipped with an iPad for ordering sushi rolls like the R2D2 (grilled hangar steak, green onions, avocado, crispy shallot, sesame, yuzu miso sauce), upgraded entrees like a 24hr-marinated Karaage Chicken, and drinks from a full bar boasting 10+ rice wines creatively mixed in concoctions like the Japanese Devil's Tail: habanero-infused sake served in a hollowed cucumber, thus making it very difficult for you to keep your cool.
A downtown dive bar with crazy drink specials, screenings of TV shows, pool, foosball, and a patio. Plus, on Fridays, they open early at 5p for $2 cheeseburgers & chips and $4 pitchers of Lone Star.
With specials like $5 liquor pitcher Thursdays and $2 Long Islands and karaoke Tuesdays, Shakespeare's will set you up to star in your own tragic comedy.
The Side Bar is a wonderful product of a classic dive bar formula: cheap, strong drinks + friendly bar staff + great jukebox + pool (+ sometimes Roombas are the ones playing pool).
From a group that's been helming SW'ern joints for 20+ years, this pine-floored firewatering hole serves a short list of grilled-to-order tortilla fillers and a long list of tequilas, either along an open kitchen counter, in booths, or at community tables and a concrete bar top lorded over by a rebar liquor cage, giving a worms-eye view of Anejo the Giant vs. the Ultimate Wabo-rior.
