Decent beer list, some interesting cocktails but not a lot of sophistication in ingredients for upscale standards. Music amazing. Didn't try the food.

This place has anything you need for your late night cocktails if you prefer Jazz over other choices of music in Austin - good drinks, good service and good air conditioner. Bring your jacket to keep warm, even in the summer.

one of those must do experiences in Austin. Jazz, beer and a basement bar. Dollars pinned to the ceiling, and well...... just try it

I absolutely loved this place! The service was great, the bar has some really nice beers to try for locals, and many other great drinks. The artists are supremely talented, and will leave you mesmerized. There is no food served, but you can get food from outside and eat it in there if you are too hungry. The ambience is... More

Went here with friends while visiting in Austin – a nice speakeasy type atmosphere with great jazz bands.. A great change of pace if you want to switch from honky-tonk ior Blue Gras-relaxing atmosphere and great drinks. Reasonable cover charge

My husband and I stopped in here after dinner at Counter 3 Five VII, which is just upstairs. A jazz quartet was playing that night and we enjoyed the music. The drinks were very good and service was friendly and efficient. The space is in a basement, which gives the whole bar a speakeasy vibe. Overall a great place to... More

My wife and I visited on a Monday evening around 6-7 pm. The bar was mostly empty, but there was an amazing jazz trio playing originals and classic standards. The bartender was very helpful and friendly, and the drinks not too expensive. I loved the atmosphere and the jazz. I'll be coming back whenever I'm in Austin.
