After a long quarantine absence, one of Austin’s most beloved places to drink and play is back in action, bringing as much optimism and joy as its name implies. Pop in Thursdays through Sundays to catch some of the best tracks in the city. From DJs blasting ‘90s country-pop to Beyoncé tribute bands, you’ll want to wear your most comfortable shoes so you can easily break it down on both the inside and outside dance floors. However, even those without TikTok-worthy moves can find something to love beneath this spot’s large neon lights. Take the kale-spiked Lime Margarita, for instance, which we give you full permission to count among your daily veggie servings.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
