Meet your dream dive bar.
There's an obvious reason why Clive Bar rhymes with "dive bar," so you can ask the bartender for menus of a couple restaurants across the street.
Pay respects to the passing of the Peacock Lounge by sipping a cocktail in their old chairs, which now reside here
Nerd alert! Be aware!
Text me I live nearby I'll come drink :)
One of the great hidden gems downtown, just off Rainey Street. And make sure to check out Bar Ilegal in the backyard.
Tip your bartenders ya'll.
Huge outdoor area for all the patio dwellers.
Ask the bartenders what they like to make. They're all very passionate about their craft, and they tend to have a couple of amazing drinks in their back pockets! Or just get a Pecan Porter on draft.
I love sitting outside here. So much outdoor space, awesome view, tons of food trucks to deliver. Perfect!
Remember to not wear open toe shoes...
This is the "dive-iest" fancy bar in all of Austin. All the class of a high scale lounge with tons more character. Plus with $2 Pearl you can't beat it.
Love the candles outside, luring me in...
Rainey st mule is delicious!
Part of the Rainey St. collection of bars, Clive Bar has a distinct vibe with a nice wooden side porch, perfect for enjoying a drink and the warm Austin weather.
Ask for St. George's Gin (Cask)
Slam a shot of Herradura neat, chase it with a Victoria! Life will be fantastic.
Deep Eddy frozen drink here. Must. Have.
Best bar in Austin. Period. Exclamation mark.
Todd the bartender is amazing and makes a great dirty martini. The service is impeccable
A favorite, slightly out of the way, spot - during SxSW or anytime.
Oddly enough the patio here is unquestionably one if the best places to see the bats!
Don't steal the pretty glassware, they check your bags on your way out
If you don't dress like an idiot, be prepared for several annoying people to call you a hipster
Order eats from the bevy of food trucks across the street (the bartenders have the menus)
Order scotch on the rocks and they'll pour you a triple
This place is fantastic. However, the ping pong table is unfairly positioned and leaves one side with an unfair advantage.
Don't come here. I love Rainey st but our bartender is TERRIBLE. Or come here and ask for one of the male bartenders.
Get some food across the street at G'raj ma hal! They will deliver it to Clive.
Don't look like an out of towner and order a "specialty drink" because they don't have them. Stick with Pearl.
Off the beaten path -
Very weak and Wayyyy overpriced drinks. Nogo
Sick mezcal selection.
Great patio! Great selection! Great bar!
Try a barrel aged cocktail!
Bar 96 is a piece of shit
be under 30 & a hot femme ... then the service is excellent ... if your not option 1, 2 or both .... be prepared to stand at the bar with an empty glass in your hand!
Rainey street the LA of Austin.
Great outdoor seating and mezcal mules at Bar Ilegal.
Kick out of a bar sober is odd....
They have awesome live bands
Clive is one of the most relaxing bars on Rainey Street because of its "Western" feel. Try visiting several of the bars on the street, each has a very distinct personality.
Awesome bartenders and drinks. Sit outside and enjoy!
Don't do redeyes here
Great place to grab a drink. Go out to the back though and enjoy the outside.
We are in the "Mescal Room.". God have mercy on our souls.
This bar is nice, but seriously blows on service sorry to say this. And could have done without the men's bathroom door being open
