The Water Tank
7309 McNeil Dr., Austin, 512/331-9831
Hours: 11am-2am daily
For 20 years, the water tank has been seated in the shadow of an actual Water Tower in a North Austin neighborhood where one would not normally expect to find an R&B/karaoke bar that often caters to a similarly unlikely crowd: computer geeks. Mondays are dedicated to acoustic jam sessions; Wednesdays and Thursdays offer local soul acts; Saturdays they host open R&B jam sessions; and the other days of the week, you're the featured talent.
