This neighborhood favorite in Central Austin has everything: a dive-bar attitude, ample seating indoors and on the dog-friendly patio, multiple pool tables, dartboard tournaments, more than 30 taps and more than 100 beer bottles and cans, a full menu of pub food staples, and a long, daily happy hour. It's not the bar for visitors or bar-crawlers -- when you come to Crown & Anchor, you end up staying for the whole night with a local brew in one hand, a cheap cheeseburger in the other, and familiar faces surrounding you.
We don’t have any official data per say, but we would risk a round to say that no one in America consumes more beer than your average Coed. Trust the experts then, and head to Crown & Anchor, a close-to-campus hideaway that has been a staple for Longhorns since 1987. The place is so chock-full of the kind of neon beer signs, college memorabilia, and bar game accessories, you’re liable to have senior year deja-vu. But the real reason it may be such a UT go-to is the brewski selection—it offers more than 30 drafts on tap with tons other cans (over 100!) stocked behind the bar’s many fridges. Enjoy a pint on the expansive patio, with one of its stacked burgers, and you’re bound to feel like you’re 21 again—at least until the hangover the next morning.
How to order: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
