Here Nor There
If you’ve ever wanted to feel like a secret agent, head to Here Nor There. It’s located in a basement under an alleyway in downtown Austin, right next to The Driskill. Make reservations through a dedicated app, which will reveal a secret code before your scheduled time that will let you through the gate. It sounds like a lot of effort, but worth it once you walk through the front door and are greeted by a life-sized stuffed bear holding a tray of champagne, a trendy atmosphere, and old school hip hop on the speakers (clean white sneakers, suede chelseas, and tall leather boots all feel equally appropriate here). The cocktails can be pricey, but with liquid nitrogen-cooled olives, clarified punches, and hand-stamped ice making its way into the drink menu, it all feels like part of the show.
