TIE: East Side Show Room, Peché

Our winners this year both bring a little bit of prewar Europe to Austin. East Side Show Room is a sexy Weimar Republic cabaret perfect for our inner Sally Bowles. The Barrel Aged Negronis are absolutely wunderbar and the Rittenhouse Rye Old Fashioned has no equal. Across town, Peché has the glowing ambience of 1920s Montmartre. Josephine Baker would have looked trés chic holding her perfect French 77. We like the incomparable selection of absinthe, potent enough to create another lost generation.
