    We seriously dig this bar’s sticky-floor aesthetic and convivial vibes. The room is dark, the music is hot, the crowd is diverse, and friendly barkeeps keep the margaritas and the Two Steps flowing.

    IMPRESSIVE selection of beers. I was so impressed when I saw that they had the BEST Dominican Beer: “Presidente”. Nice staff and very professional bartenders. Great live music. Love this place.

    For a good sample of the Austin nightlife featuring Basil Hayden on tap, live music and a live dance floor, go here. Then enjoy some amazing tacos at the truck right outside.

    Come to see “Cory and the boys” Wednesday’s at midnight! Great show with open minded country vibes and a great bar staff with cheap drinks and lots of nice folks. Cowboy hat friendly 🙃

    A kick ass time every time we go! You must take the two-step dance class with a legendary miss coffee. Live music every night is hard to beat, especially with the talent they bring it in

    Great local band, beer specials and free two step lessons. Highly recommend this small honkytonk.

    A fun dive bar. They have a rotating selection of beers (don't expect cocktails), and live music with a vibrant dancing scene. No seating inside so be prepared to dance or take a seat outdoors.

    Order a 2 Step for a shot of whiskey and a lone star for $5. Free 2 step class on Saturday evenings. And of course, live music.

    A big dance floor and a brass band. Old-school cowboys and young hipsters. Get ready to two-step. Austin favorite Bomb Tacos has a trailer on the back patio.

    They have Austin Eastciders Gold Top on tap. Second best cider I've ever had (Eastciders Original is the best, IMO).

    I love this place! A great little dive bar where you're sure to find a dancing partner (even if he's 40 years older than you).

    - it smells like puke when you walk in most of the time, because the hipsters who wander in for cheap drinks after spending their trust fund money on craft cocktails elsewhere can't hold their liquor

    Provides a great reason to pull out your cowboy boots and cowboy hats. Great music every day, so be ready to two-step!

    These guys need to do something about the wall of stink when you walk in! Especially if it's warm inside. Eew!

    Folks here were extremely rude when confronted with a sensitive situation. One of the bar tenders went on a power trip, and ruined my family's night. Bad attitude and unaccommodating.
