Club De Ville

Club De Ville is an Austin mainstay, where the liquor drinks are poured with a heavy hand and the beers come in 20-ounce pint glasses. This place has a shabby-chic ambiance with low red lighting, and eclectic conversation snugs arranged around the inside of the bar, which is not very big. The main seating is outside, enclosed by a high, natural limestone cliff wall. Bands sometimes play outside, and throughout the year several fashion events are held here. The bartenders have a great music database on the computer behind the bar, so live music or not, the tunes are always good. Despite one bar inside and one out back, the place inevitably gets very crowded. So go early or expect to wait a little while for your drinks, especially near last call. This is one of the coolest places to drink in downtown Austin.

Every Thursday and every other Tuesday, Club De Ville hosts karaoke under the stars. Happy hour happens all day Monday and from 5pm–7pm Tuesday through Friday. Take advantage of $1 off all well liquor and local microbrews, as well as other varying specials.
