Milonga Room


201 E 6th St, Austin

Milonga Room might be one of the best-kept secret speakeasies in Austin. It’s located in the basement of Buenos Aires Cafe on the East Side, through a wooden door with a small eye-level opening that looks like it belongs to a haunted old building. Once inside, post up at the tiny three-seat bar or one of the handful of tables and old couches strewn about the room that looks a bit like old Victorian parlor. It’s also dimly-lit and intimate, complete with cozy corners and low ceilings—this is very much an ideal date night spot with amaro-focused drinks and a small menu of light bites—like empanadas and macarons—if you didn’t just come from dinner upstairs.
