306 Barton Springs Rd., 512/480-0952
This South Austin iteration of a British-themed pub franchise veers slightly askew of its Northside cousin. Though cover bands dominate the calendar Thursday through Sunday, Baker St. occasionally presents original local bands like Pong, Roxy Roca, and the aptly named South Austin Moonlighters. Parking is dicier here than up north, but the patio doesn’t face a freeway. Otherwise, you get a full bar, 23 beers on tap, and a lengthy menu covering everything from Baja tacos to bangers and mash. Happy hour runs until 9pm and all day Sunday.
