Heading to somewhere else but stopped off here for a drink one evening. They have some specialty drinks plus the usual bar fare. I like the inside and also sitting outside on the deck in the back. Fun little place for a drink.

We came here for drinks on Memorial Day and it was packed! It was very heard to hold a conversation with the music up and so many people there, but the bartenders were friendly and the drinks were great. It's walking distance to some solid restaurants too...

My only complaint was the DJ that night. He played outdated music all night long, even after I requested a... More

I really enjoyed gibson street bar and went there several times while in Austin. I especially loved mondays where they had makers mark for only $3 if you were wearing a moustache. (It could be either real or fake, and they provide a variety of fake moustaches for your wearing pleasure). They have a lot going on throughout the week... More

My trip list to Austin took me to Gibson Street Bar. I give this bar a Very Good, because we had such a dang good time with some down home people. Sometimes that can speak much more than other accolades. Gibson is a roadside bar with indoor seating and outside communal picnic bench seating....and that's where we chose to sit,... More
