B.D. Riley's Irish Pub

204 E. Sixth
Austin, 78701
512/494-1335
What’s an Irish pub without Irish music? Named after first generation Irish immigrant Bessie Dee Riley, B.D. Riley’s retains a bit of Old World charm before the street descends into the shot bars of Dirty Sixth. Residencies include rock & roll harp from the Kristen Gibbs band and the mandolin of Donnybrook leader Davey Arwine, but there’s music every night from Austin performers, including the harmonic free-for-all of the Sunday night Irish tune session, and Monday’s Celtic-flavored open mic. Sláinte!

Bar Congress

This tiny place serves reasonable small plates such as blistered shishito peppers with miso aioli and pomme frites with truffle aioli and Grana Padano, as well as some of the most inventive cocktails in town.

200 Congress, 512/827-2760

Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill

Some say the sliders here are the best in town. Happy hour draws a crowd, and so do the 31 TVs for the sports set.

214 E. Sixth, 512/469-0001

The Blackheart

This bar features quality spirits with an emphasis on whiskeys. Sit at one of the picnic tables in the gigantic back yard and enjoy a Blackheart with muddled cherries.
