Fodor's Expert Review Handlebar

Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Bars/Pubs

Easily found by the oversized mustachioed silhouette painted on the side of the building, this dapper downtown bar gives only a nod to the old world handlebar mustache—more importantly it pays homage to pre-Prohibition cocktails. It welcomes a wide range of patrons, local and visiting, and weekends are generally pretty busy. You’ll find a great selection of craft cocktails and local beer, as well as an outdoor deck, giant Jenga, and a photo booth.
