Loved Icenhauer's! They had cute drinks, a fire pit outside and lots of different seating areas. The whole block was cute and glad we picked this place!

Stopped in while I was checking out other establishments on Rainey (for work). Loved the casual Vibe and the selection of craft cocktails was bonus! All the drinks are named after girls. Had to try the Jennifer cocktail, which was delish! Oh, and they have free wifi! Will definitely be back when I'm in town again. Great find!

We had so much fun dancing on a Sunday afternoon!! Sangria wasn't the best I've had, but you get about a gallon of it, and it's so refreshing in the heat of Austin. Awesome place!!

Went there on a Sunday afternoon to hear the Nightowls and it was packed. Waited about 20 minutes in line to get in and another 20 for drinks. The band was great and the Sangria isn't too shabby. We then sat in the front of the bar and hung out to a laid back atmosphere...

The place had a Swedish architecture vibe and nice locations in which to sit. There is an outdoor space in the back and a middle bar section and then two mellow living room areas just inside from the front porch, on which you may also sit. The Rainey Street area for me was preferable to 6th Street; I enjoyed it... More

Put this spot on your Sunday Funday list when the Nightowls are playing their infectious renditions of Motown and party classics - grab a $5 sangria and enjoy life!

Very classy bar on Rainey. The atmosphere is cozy and you feel right at home. The manager greets you upon arrival. Tried several cocktails - "Katie" is incredibly good. The back patio seating is comfortable and the waiter is always near by. Will visit again when life band is playing.

Great place for a night out with friends. The bartenders are awesome and they play a variety of music. Patio area and inside have a great setup as well so it doesn't feel so crowded. Definitely recommend this place for a good night out!

We wondered in to this bar because of the live music we heard from the street. It's an old house that they have turned into a really cool bar. The Sunday house band, The Night Owls were preforming and were excellent!!! A great Motown sounding band with tons of energy. We loved it! The bar service was excellent, drinks affordable... More
