Austin Bars & Nightlife
90 Rainey St., Rainey
This vibrant concept space is best known for its’ bold architecture, which features a dance floor inside of stacked shipping containers. If you need a break from the—sometimes overheated—dance floor, there’s always an airy outdoor portion that overlooks the party (which is great for conversations). The founder, local entrepreneur Bridget Dunlap, is largely credited with reinvigorating the street.
Blue Owl Brewing
2400 E. Cesar Chavez St., Holly
The house-brewed beer at Blue Owl is sour—in the best way—due to their signature all-natural fermentation process, fittingly called sour-mashing, which results in lower acidity content and a tart, hoppy taste. (Staff on hand can provide you with a tasting guide to start, or opt for their $15 self-guided tasting tour.) Along with the unique texture/flavor medley of their distinctive brews, the bar itself is an elevated experience compared to your typical brewery: It is lofty, whitewashed, and fun.
