Driskill Bar, Austin, Texas

604 Brazos Street
Austin , Texas
Tel: 512 391 7162's insider take:

This venerable Austin hotel is known for its rooms and its restaurant, but the very best part of it might be the evocative bar, which transports you to the days of the Old West. Everything's done up in cowhide and polished copper, the barmen are genteel, and the crowd is all Texas money. There's live piano music some evenings, and always enough activity to make the place feel lively, even on a weeknight when the rest of downtown Austin's bars are empty. The Scotch selection and small but well-chosen beer list are the highlights drink-wise.

Open Sundays through Thursdays noon to midnight, Fridays and Saturdays noon to 2 am.
