Best Swanky Joint

The Brown Bar

Tucked downstairs from the Brown Building lofts, behind smoky glass on the corner of Eighth & Lavaca streets, the Brown Bar has become the lounge of choice for Austin's beautiful people. Maybe it's the lighting, which has that Forties feel of glamour. Or it could just be that the bartenders know how to make a mean drink -- including one of the best Mojitos in town.
