I had the opportunity to experience DRINK bar on a Monday evening- during the daily Happy Hour. We tried two craft cocktails: the Cosmic Paloma (made with Tito’s vodka, fresh grapefruit juice, Jarritos soda, and rosemary sprigs) and the Texas Mule (made with El Silencio Mezcal, agave, lime, Reed’s ginger brew, and fresh mint). We also tried frozen cocktails: the Frose (made with House rose, agave, and citrus) and the Mango Punch (Deep Eddy vodka, mango, and citrus).
My absolute favorite was the Mango Punch. It was frozen, perfect for cooling down in the summer heat. All of the cocktails were refreshing and extremely tasty. They were also picture perfect! We appreciated the presentation of the craft cocktails. While they don’t offer food at DRINK bar, you’ll have plenty of food vendors to choose from inside the same building. Since the bar is nestled inside Fareground, a few steps in any direction will take you straight to a yummy food vendor/business. You can have a tasty drink and pair it with a specialty meal. You have so many different food choices-this bar couldn’t be in a better spot!
Overall, our experience at DRINK bar was superb. We thought the atmosphere was full of life- even on a Monday! The bar is situated in a great centralized spot inside Fareground. We enjoyed all of the drinks that had the chance to try. All were very well made with delicious flavor profiles. Whether you like beer, cocktails, wine, coffee, tea, or even hot chocolate- this bar has you covered. Outstanding location, service, vibes, and drinks. What more could we ask for? This was a wonderful Austin spot for us to unwind during the evening after work. Make sure to swing by during the hours of 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM. We highly recommend you experience DRINK bar for yourself- any day of the week!
