Over on East 6th, increasingly surrounded by condo developments, lies this very fine dive bar with cheap drinks and one of Austin’s best whiskey selections. The Grackle’s dimly-lit interior has darts and pool, and there’s a spacious covered patio out front. It’s oddly never too crowded, and there’s sometimes even parking out front. Currently in The Grackle’s parking lot is Arlo’s, serving plant-based renditions of comfort food like hamburgers and french fries.
