This little cocktail bar is sittin' pretty on 53rd street and has been near and dear to our hearts since 2012. Whether you're grabbing drinks with friends or looking for an fun yet intimate date night spot, drink.well is definitely for you. Our go-to cocktails are the fun spins on classics, like the Martinez, a sweet take on the classic martini or the Grimhilde's Julep, a seasonal spin on your classic mint julep. Not only do they make a mean cocktail, but their food is absolutely delicious. You can never go wrong with an Antonelli's cheese plate, but make sure you try the crispy ancho chickpeas and the house burger. Y'all, that smoked onion marmalade mixed with the white cheddar is o.m.g. Do yourself a favor and head to drink.well this weekend!
Happy Hour - Tuesday-Friday, 4-6 PM // $6 seasonal classic cocktails, $2 off wine by the glass, $1 off draught beers, discounted snacks
A little bit of drink.well now lies on our neck of the woods on South Lamar, and we could NOT be happier. Michael and Jessica Sanders are a dynamic duo when it comes to the bar scene in Austin and we really like what they did to the place! The rooftop bar is definitely one of the best for views of downtown, and is perfect for spring nights. One thing we love about the Sanders' bars are their incorporation of authentic tiki cocktails. Their Mai Tai takes us straight to #islandtime and we highly recommend ordering the punch bowl at happy hour with the girls. Seriously, don't leave without trying their signature cocktail, the backbeat, with hints of celery and citrus. You'll find us #rooftoplivin' all summer long!
Happy Hour - Tuesday-Thursday, 4-7 PM and all night Sunday & Monday // $7 cocktails, $2 off wine by the glass, $1 off draught beers, $2 off bar snacks
We stumbled upon this hidden gem about two weekends ago and y'all, it's definitely a top 5 bar for us here in #atx. First off, how cute and fun are these cocktails? Sonic ice #ftw, always. But seriously, obsessed doesn't even cover it. This spot resides over on East Cesar Chavez, but there are two other locations in the US - Tribeca and Brooklyn. The trendy mint and white outdoor patio makes for the best of times and the black, white, and chrome interior is incredibly inviting. As far as cocktails go, you definitely have to order the Expat (gin + blackberry + sonic ice, win win) the El Nacional (tequila + hibiscus grenadine + rosewater), and the Partisan (partis + champagne). Also, their snacks are amazing, so make sure you snag some of the steak frites and pimento cheese. We can't wait to spend many a spring days posted up on their patio with a drink (or two) in hand.
Happy Hour - Everyday, 4-7 PM // $7 cocktails and $5 thick cut fries + malt vinegar aioli
