    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

    One of the great hidden gems downtown, just off Rainey Street. And make sure to check out Bar Ilegal in the backyard.

    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 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.

    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.

    This place is fantastic. However, the ping pong table is unfairly positioned and leaves one side with an unfair advantage.

    Great cocktail menu. However, some bartenders may need to be reminded that every cocktail should not be shaken. Nightly $6 cocktails during the week and free biscuits and gravy 2nd & 4th Sunday's.
