Looking for an authentic honky tonk dive bar experience? Ginny's is an Austin favorite, though from the looks of the rather dull exterior, you may not believe it at first. We never said it would be glamorous, but the beer is cold and the service is friendly. Local music legend Dale Watson often takes the tiny stage here, and the cast of regulars at this honored saloon is too good to miss. While it's not part of the downtown scene, country music acts are sure to frequent this legendary dance hall during SXSW.
