From “adult milkshakes” to snow cones, there is no limit to what you can order, as long as it can turn into liquid and mixes well with booze. You can also order shots, blended cocktails, and even boozy floats off their extensive menu. No matter what you choose, chances are you won’t leave without the perfect buzz.

Coyote Ugly

You’ve heard the name, but you’ve never experienced anything like Austin’s Coyote Ugly. Get ready to get down and dirty with the wild bartenders who will have you dancing in the bar, chugging drinks like a champ, and channeling your inner coyote. Every night they offer drink specials that will have you and your wallet cheering, including Frisky Fridays and Sexy Saturdays. If the weekly deals don’t suit your fancy, the fantastic happy hour options will, and the staff won’t let you leave until you’re nice and toasted

The Blind Pig Pub

The Blind Pig Pub is one of the top bars on 6th Street in Austin, TX. On any given night, you can catch a live band at The Blind Pig Pub. The bar features a small stage in the corner, and the intimate setting makes for an unforgettable experience.

What sets Shakespeare’s apart is its entertainment. The bar features a variety of events throughout the week, including trivia nights, karaoke, and live music. The live music ranges from local bands to national acts; there’s always something new and exciting happening at Shakespeare’s.

Midnight Cowboy

If you like to indulge in a little speakeasy vibe from time to time, why not check out the Midnight Cowboy? Once a brothel that now boasts delectable cocktails instead of… other items, it will still give you a taste of the sensual side of Austin. Be prepared for secret entrances, decor that will transport you to the Prohibition Era, and a sordid past belonging to the building that is owned rather than shunned. With such a rich backdrop, it is impossible not to get lost in the atmosphere of this engaging cocktail bar, which also serves “potent” conceptions that will leave you feeling heady and excited to take on the rest of the city. Make sure to reserve your space beforehand since they don’t accept walk-ins.

If you’re headed to this unique city, do yourself a favor and create an itinerary involving all these and more. Better yet, why not jump on a bar crawl like Crawl Austin and let someone else take the lead? Having knowledgeable locals guide you around (not to mention awesome drink specials) might be the best way to see everything and taste it all! So what are you waiting for? Texas is calling… are you going to answer?
