The Driskill Bar
A downtown Austin institution since the late 1800s, The Driskill is a historic hotel at 6th and Congress that some people think is haunted (we think it’s the 6th Street shots talking). It’s also home to a pretty iconic bar that feels like it’s where old school Texans went for a formal night out. While this technically falls into the “hotel bar” category, it’s accessible for anyone. The cocktails aren’t anything special, but you’re here for a chance to step back in time while sipping on a martini in one of the most historic bars in the state.
