Best New Club

TIE: Stay Gold, Highland Lounge

New clubs are popping up in Austin like so many poppers. Two new venues remind us that saturation doesn’t have to mean lack of innovation. With delicious drinks, an ample patio, and nightly music, Stay Gold is a haven for those looking for some substance on a night out. The vinyl-covered booths and red-velvet stage curtains set the ambience of a Seventies soul lounge, and the music doesn’t disappoint on that front either. If you’re looking for something a little more rambunctious, there's Highland Lounge. Everyone loves a good drag show, and you’ll find the most fabulous of them here. Folks who prefer to be the center of attention can show up for an amateur strip night, or let their inner club kid shine on the dance floor.

Highland Lounge
404 Colorado, 512/649-1212
