ATX Hotel Bars You Won’t Want to Miss!!

Here in Austin, Hotel bars are not just for the tourists! We have some of the most amazing, unique and beautiful hotels (and bars) I have ever seen. I often end up bringing guests from out of town to some of these hotel bars for a classy round of cocktails before I show them Dirty 6th. LOL. Below is a list of my personal favorites, each one has unique characteristics you won’t want to miss!


The Lobby Bar @ South Congress Hotel

Beautiful, bright and modern vibe, great place to dress up! Full Bar, Craft cocktails and snack plates from Cafe No Se. Happy Hour Monday- Friday 5-7:00 pm
Also check them out on First Thursdays! They usually have some type of music and fun things to do before settling down at their beautiful bar


Geraldine’s @ Hotel Van Sandt

Gorgeous bar, absolutely stunning and classy atmosphere. It’s got an upscale vibe, perfect for celebrating special occaisons like a birthday or dinner date! Their Happy Hour is Monday- Friday 5-6:30 pm and they are also open daily for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner!


Bar @ The Driskill


Timeless authentic Texan bar, an austin original- theres so much history!
Make your own decision whether or not you actually think its haunted…
Happy Hour daily 4-7:00 pm, check them out for Wine Wednesdays 1/2 off bottles! Check out their websites for events throughout the year such as High Tea and Holiday Tree Lighting!
They often have great live music, this is my favorite place in austin!


Azul @ The Westin


Rooftop bar,  with the BEST view in Austin! It’s a casual dress, poolside lounge perfect for starting out the night before heading out to the bars.
I recommend watching the sunset!

Visconti Bar @ Hotel Granduca


Italian style, it takes me back to Venice, large selection of wine! I honestly can’t say enough about this hotel, its such a gem and I’m so glad I discovered it. Wind down in the courtyard, If you haven’t been to this hotel on 360, you’re missing out! Happy Hour Thursday 4- 7:00 pm

Beautiful courtyard, perfect for lounging with friends on a sunny day! This is definitely a favorite among Austinites, it has a quaint backyard vibe- theres something about drinking in this environment! Happy Hour Monday – Thursday 12-5:00 pm.
