    Done up in white on antique white, Swan Dive is the place for all things piquant. Specializing in the eccentric, atmospheric, and anachronistic, they book music that marches to a different off-beat.

    I've seen it all at this speakeasy... swing, gypsy jazz, Balkan stomp, punk-jazz-mardis-gras-parade music, and other, um, weird stuff.

    The cocktails may be in plastic cups, but they are still mighty delicious.

    Swan Dive is the closest thing Austin has to a vintage speakeasy. Inside the powder-white boutique bar, you'll find a selection of hipster cocktails and a good spirits selection.

    Greatest new bar in Austin! The atmosphere is old school and just right for a night out.

    This place feels like it was regal sometime in the 1910s and has since been haunted by style-ghosts.

    This is probably the only reason I willingly go downtown. The drinks are pricey, but the music is always super interesting.

    It's cute now but not worth $6 beers. Get over yourself

    GGAllen played here when it was the Cavity Club. First time I went to the "rest room" someone was shooting up. That was the early 90s. Amazingly clean now!
