Best Place To Re-Create 'Cabaret': East Side Show Room

Best Place To Re-Create 'Cabaret': East Side Show Room

The periscope winking at you from the bar is your first sign. Indeed, walking into the mother-and-daughter-owned East Side Show Room is a welcome submersion into the bar culture and design of 1920s/1930s Europe – wrought-iron fixtures, penny-covered tables, and exposed-brick walls. There are definitely Austin fingerprints all over though, from a Texas-grown menu to the weekly live music, and the top-notch cocktails will get you sassier than Sally Bowles. (Don't worry; the lighting's low.)

East Side Show Room
1100 E. Sixth, 512/467-4280
