412-D Congress, 512/476-8017
Climb each of Speakeasy’s three stories and a different adventure awaits. Though Congress Avenue might host classier digs, you’ll rarely find one that’s been open almost 20 years and includes a bowling alley, music lounge, Kabaret room, and a rooftop terrace, all for a combined capacity of 1,000. Even fewer rest on the site of a deadly 1916 fire and are registered with the Haunted Austin Tour.
Old-school, vinyl turntable mix show fundraising event every Thursday night on the Terrace 59 Rooftop. Through Dec. 27. Thursdays, 10pm. Free.
