    Step inside to grab a drink but head right back outside to mingle with others, enjoy the lounge chairs, or hit up the picnic and Ping-Pong tables. Oh, and there's typically a taco truck. No brainer.

    If you're looking for beer on tap, this isn't the bar for you. Instead, come here for delicious mixed drink specials. Try Bar 96 across the street for good local, draft beers and cornhole.

    This is my absolute favorite bar in Austin. $2 Coors Original and the BEST taco truck I have ever been to. I've tried almost everything on the menu at this point and it's all frakking delicious.

    There’s plenty at Lustre Pearl to stimulate you if your company doesn’t. With ping pong tables, hula hoops, taco trucks, and roomy-by-room choice of decor, expect to be entertained… just not to park.

    the carne asada tacos from the taco truck are killer. let inhibitions loose and try a hula hoop.. or two if you dare. super chill vibe with great drinks, atmosphere and playlist

    Walking in to the Lustre Pearl is like coming home. Probably because it's a repurposed house, but great idea. You'll never want to leave especially when you can pick your own tunes on the jukebox.

    One of my favorite bars in the world, hands down. Have a Victoria, one of mexicos oldest beers. Delicious paired with carnitas.

    Get up close and personal to your favourite bands in this patio space. Best bartenders in Austin in my opinion.

    1 of my favorite places in Austin. Feels like a house party. Find a small room to hang with your friends or play ping pong in the backyard.

    Complex and their 'Douchiest Bars' list be damned, this is a great spot to play ping-pong, hula hoop, or just enjoy a beverage on the oversized back patio.

    Love this bar. The beers come with koozies. Amazing back yard with lights, tables and usually a food truck.

    You should challenge a friend to a game of ping pong, then stop by the taco truck on your way out!

    Great relaxed outdoor area, and one of the best taco trucks in Austin serving up delicious treats.

    Definitely a more chill place. Drink beer and play ping pong. Or try to play ping pong, depending on where you are in your night.

    Best tacos I've ever had out of a bus/van! The guy shows up around 6:30pm and is set up by 7pm. Check him out!

    You aren't only limited to sitting down and drinking at this bar... You can also hula hoop and play ping pong!

    Cool idea: new bar made from repurposing an old house in an worn industrial area. It spurred 3 other lounges around it. Check out the many benefit events hosted here too.

    Might be my fave bar in Austin: ping-pong, taco truck, big backyard & dancing in an old swampy shack, does it get any better?
