Perfect For:Drinking Good Beer

1700 E 6th St, Austin
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

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. There's often a food truck parked out front that changes every once in a while.
