    Best bartenders in town. I've been coming here since it first open, and all I have to say is my usual or it's already being made as they see me walk thru the door. 5 stars all the way.

    A neighborhood bar with a laid back atmosphere, for the most part. Inexpensive drinks and great bartenders.

    Great bar, one of the best in Austin in fact. Great prices and heavy handed bartenders.

    Friendly neighborhood bar. Hipster-y, but not in a bad way. The bartenders are great, the pours are generous, and they are always playing the oddest/greatest movies on their TV.

    Go to Barfly's and order the "Happy Meal". Best 5 bucks you'll ever spend trying to get sauced. You have to earn your 10 dollar minimum at this place.
