Carousel Lounge

1110 E. 52nd
Austin, 78723
Sixth Street and Red River haunts get all the press, but let’s face it: Austin’s really about the dive bars. None boast more casual revelry than the Carousel Lounge. Come in, order a beer or a set-up for your brown bag, and enjoy a rotating roster of local acts, most of them gratis. No lace, no steampunk themes, and no more than 100 seats to fill, its elephant decor matches the forget-me-not standards on the jukebox. Not the place for kiddos, unless you plan on leaving them in the car. Cash only.
