Drinks Lounge opened on September 17, 2014 as an escape for the locals from the ever changing East Side.

The building we’re in has been many bars over the years since 1967; The Wrangler, Laranjas, Parties, Club Tropical, Club El Calentano, and Big D’s Sports Bar.

We have a spacious interior with a 40 foot long horseshoe bar, giant booths, plenty of tables with comfortable chairs, two pool tables, a photo booth and an open air patio in front. We have a simple and tasty cocktail menu of tested classics & some personal recipes, draft & package beers focusing mainly on local Austin favorites.

We have a delicious menu of hand made classic bar food from our own Eats Kitchen. Wings, hand cut fries, fresh made chips & queso, tacos, sliders & our specialy Drinks Lounge Burger. All made fresh when you order.

Tuesdays the pool tables are free, and weeknights are full of locals and service industry people. Weekends we host vinyl DJs playing all types of music.  We’re available for private events, happy hour get togethers and SXSW events.

Come hang out when you’re in the neighborhood.

We are a bar so the 21+ rule is strongly enforced.
