More bar than restaurant, Weather Up serves some of the best cocktails in Austin, and is perfect for a ladies’ night or other group outing. You can hang out in the bar area inside, or head outside to the expansive backyard with twinkling lights. You may not recognize half the ingredients in your drink, but what matters more is that you can count on drinking something you’ll enjoy. The snacks aren’t mind-blowing, but they’ll work to sustain you as you sample all the cocktails. Try the fingerling potatoes, the crab cakes, or the braised pork that comes with a fried avocado. And if you want to step it up, mix some of their homemade Fireball into your evening.
