What’s you go-to cocktail bar near your South Austin apartments? It’s easy to find top-notch cocktails bars in Austin as long as you know where to look. In this week’s blog post, the staff at Canvas will be talking about three of our favorite cocktail bars in the city. These bars have gorgeous patios, friendly bartenders, and of course, delicious cocktails. Next time you get off work in time to catch the tail end of happy hour, check these places out!
Without further ado, let’s dive right into this week’s post. Oh, and when you’re done reading through it, please be sure to share this blog with your friends and neighbors at Canvas — the apartments South Austin residents choose for upscale comfort and style.
If you like cocktail bartenders that put on a show when they make your drink, head on over to Backbeat on South Lamar. This is a small, intimate space that’s perfect for date night. The wood walls make it feel cozy inside, and the decor is just unique enough to be interesting without being over the top.
The cocktails are super innovative, so try to be adventurous and order something that you wouldn't usually get! We highly recommend the Mexican Firing Squad cocktail, or any of their unique bourbon drinks.
Although it’s most commonly known as one the best brunch spots in town, Weather Up is also one of the best places in Austin for those hoping to grab a quick, tasty cocktail. It’s located in the heart of East Austin, but the spacious patio and relaxed atmosphere makes you feel like you’re miles outside the city. This place has delicious craft cocktails, and they all pair well with one of their signature charcuterie boards.
Like a lot of other bars in East Austin, Weather Up is located inside a renovated home. There are a few tables inside, but we recommend grabbing a spot on the huge outdoor patio if the weather is cooperating. One cool thing about Weather Up is that they use all organic ingredients to make their cocktails, giving each drink a distinctly fresh flavor profile
Next up one our list is one of the cleanest, most chic bars in Rainey Street. Half Step is located inside a light blue house with the white porch, which is pretty much the perfect setting for a trendy yet unassuming cocktail bar. The first thing you’ll notice upon ordering your cocktail is the ice. Half Step uses a special ice-maker to create crystal clear ice that helps make their cocktails highly-Instagrammable.
Like any good cocktail bar staff, the folks behind the bar at Half Step take a lot of pride in their drinks. If you order a cocktail and you don’t like it, they’ll make you another one without batting an eye!
Those are just a few of the best cocktail bars in Austin, but there are plenty of others to try out next time you’re in the mood for a drink! We’d like to thank you for taking the time to read this week’s post, residents, and we hope that you enjoy the recommendations on the list above.
