Best Bar to Find Honky-Tonk Hustlers

Sam's Town Point

Sometimes you wanna go where you can hang with your friends in low places, which isn’t always easy when you’re crammed shoulder-to-shoulder waiting in line for the bar at a club in the big ol’ city. But in “way South” Austin, honky-tonk vibes and a laid-back atmosphere still coexist at Sam’s Town Point, a neighborhood bar/music venue that draws the talents of local alt.country acts as well as big-time legends with weekly events like Steel Monday. For now, they only sell beer and wine, but you can BYOL any night for a $10 setup. So grab some friends, throw some Jack in your bag, and head down south because, as Sam's reminds us, "friends are the best part of life."
