If there is a line, it moves very quickly. Be sure to bring your ID. The bartenders and waitresses are very friendly. People sit with folks they hadn't met before because of the limited seating and the crowd. It's fun to meet new folks. The jazz band was outstanding. We were only going to stay an hour or so and...

Decent beer list, some interesting cocktails but not a lot of sophistication in ingredients for upscale standards. Music amazing. Didn't try the food.

This place has anything you need for your late night cocktails if you prefer Jazz over other choices of music in Austin - good drinks, good service and good air conditioner. Bring your jacket to keep warm, even in the summer.

The artists are supremely talented, and will leave you mesmerized. There is no food served, but you can get food from outside and eat it in there if you are too hungry. The ambience is... More
