Just got off the road from Marfa and need a craft cocktail before you return home and plant the seeds of your eventual succulent farm? Native is where you go. It’s located in the lobby of a trendy hotel (which they claim is an “experiential hostel”), and it’s the trendiest place to grab a drink in Austin right now. The drink menu is short but solid, and there’s a late-night kitchen that serves a duck confit salad (among more typical bar food) until 2am. A night here will be fun, just prepare for it to be loud and crowded too.
