    BEST cocktails in Austin. They use fresh ingredients to make unique and delicious drinks you can't find anywhere else. Just tell them what you want or the flavor you're looking for, they'll make it.

    Unleash your inner flapper and come out to Peche to sample fantastic cocktails served up by the best mixologists west of the Mississippi. Favorites include the Sazerac and the Texas Mule.

    The Best Pisco Sour in town!!! They have many awesome drinks, but their Pisco Sour is like the ones I had in Santiago (Chile).

    Nice soothing environment. 100+ cocktails, lots of liquor. Exquisite cuisine. Lots of unique items on the menu, escargot and rabbit liver mousse

    A comprehensive absinthe list and a drink menu littered with cocktails from the show, Peche is the mixology bar. Our favorite is the NY Sour with Makers Mark, lemon, simple, and a red wine float.

    A big restaurant with a speakeasy vibe. Have the bartenders make you a drink, I got the lions tail, which was perfect.

    Where do I start..Butter Lettuce Salad with Avacado comes w a slice of the most amazing cheese. Meatball dish was slightly spicy & stuffed with cheese. Delicious. Tried to come back before I left.

    The atmosphere of this place is perfect. The prohibition-style attire of the bartenders is spot on with the 1920s atmosphere of the bar. Try the French 77 - it's absolutely perfect.

    The food is RIDICULOUSLY good. The trout with hatch Chile butter and chocolate torte with salted caramel mousse were my favorites. The Silver Monk cocktail is also amazing. Lovely atmosphere!

    An amazing selection of sipping absinthe and absinthe cocktails. Close to the downtown craziness yet secluded enough to get a break from it.

    If you’re a gin drinker, I strongly recommend the Bees Knees (gin, local honey and lemon). Even though Hendrick’s is my new favorite, the Cucumber Gimlet was a little too sweet for my liking.

    One of my favorite restaurants in Austin. The duck confit is delightful, but it's hard to go wrong with such a wonderful menu.

    Extensive drink menu with lots of great choices, but also a good opportunity to talk to the bartenders about what you like to see what they suggest.

    Looks unassuming from the outside, but on the inside it's the perfect little spot to enjoy a drink. The adult milkshakes are fun and delicious. Read more

    Creative cocktail menu, ask your server for recommendations. I love the off the menu Periwinkle cocktail, not too sweet and incredibly refreshing.

    Austin's original absinthe house has an extensive menu filled with modern and classic cocktails categorized by base spirit. Of course, there's no better place to have traditionally prepared absinthe.

    Quite possibly the best meal I had on this trip to Austin! The escargot is outstanding. Their duck confit is the best I’ve ever tasted.

    The Mac and cheese and mushroom fritters are great. Order the mustache gun for your drink. Not on the menu, but it is AWESOME.

    Vintage cocktail? YES! This is the only place in Austin that serve legal absinthe (without wormwood). The bar tenders are knowledgable and they do take mixology to the next level.

    Intimate artisan cocktail bar with great old school recipes (my fave was Spicy Bees Knees)... and absinthe. The farm salad with egg and pork belly were great.

    Anybody who thinks Peche is overpriced wouldn't know good food or amazing cocktails if they came up and bit them in the face! Peche has ruined us for all other bars, the cocktails are amazing!!

    Order a couple types of absinthe and have them walk you through it. They know their stuff.

    I asked for a wine menu, and they had to search for one. This is a true cocktail bar. I scrapped the wine and went for a dark and stormy.

    The French 75 is amazing and so is the salted cod potatoes. Sat at the bar with Mark as our bartender and he was interesting and informative!

    Excellent moules in lemon broth with Tito's Vodka. Try also the charcuterie board. They also do a good riff on the Last Word using rye, called the Final Say.

    Reader tip: For some of the best cocktails in town, go to Peche on 4th Street. They make their own bitters as a sign of their devotion. Read more

    Ask for the Up in Smoke if you like mezcal. It’s off menu, but oh so good.

    Most knowledgable bartenders and creative drinks, but the food is outstanding, too. If you order mussels, get extra bread for the broth. Very tasty.

    A cocktail bar for people who don't think they like cocktails. Don't bother asking for anything with Vodka. Branch out, let an expert mixologist make you a COCKTAIL & snack on some tasty small plates.
