Half Step review image

Half Step


75 1/2 Rainey St, Austin
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

You can get cocktails at just about any bar on Rainey Street, but if you want some of the best the neighborhood has to offer, you’ll want to make your way to Half Step. Inside it’s a dark and dimly-lit remodeled bungalow, with a large patio outside. There’s a neat little menu of classic and contemporary cocktails, but the bartenders here are good enough to make you just about anything—though ordering anything too labor-intensive during peak hours will probably earn you a (warranted) glare.
