    Oslo: Swinging Bubbles

    by LaurynDC Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This is one of my bestfriends and my favorite spot to go one the weekends. The crowds are a bit older and it's not so crowded. It's a great place to end the night. And if you're lucky you can sit in one of the huge swinging balls. I'd order a dirty martini.. they make em right.

    Dress Code: No tennis shoes

    4th Street: 4th street plus.

    by wombatx Written Jul 23, 2007

    4th street is great but know that if you go up two blocks and head west on sixth (away from SIXTH STREET bar district) there are many more of the same type of places" a little older, less like amatuer night.

    BY the way, Fado the Irish pub is a chain.

  • Tambaleo, Downtown: Cocktail Rhetoric, Free Conversation Show

    by Mrchowwow Written Nov 6, 2006

    Cocktail Rhetoric, Austin's Original Live Conversation Show, is free to the public every Thursday evening at 7:30PM at
    Tambaleo downtown. This isn't your usual talk show: this is not broadcast anywhere. It's performed only on stage for a live
    audience. Hosted by Cris Edwards, each week Cocktail Rhetoric welcomes a live guest for a unique, one-of-a-kind
    conversation over drinks. Cris lets the audience pick the topics, with no limits on tone or topic. And each week Cris welcomes a
    live Austin band to liven up the mood and offer their own brand of input on the show. It's talk, and variety, and music, and
    beer, and it's all free to watch. For more info visit www.cocktailrhetoric.com or www.myspace.com/cocktailrhetoric. I love it because I host it. Come join us. Buy a few drinks. Sit back. Have a chat.

    Dress Code: Laid back.

    4th Street: Extremely comfortable Irish pub

    by Minstrelette Written Jul 4, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fado's is my favourite place to hang out in Austin. It's a large space with lots of nooks where you can sit and relax with a pint and some Irish/American food. I particularly like the spot by the fireplace. I've only been here during the day, so I can't say how crowded it gets at night, but during the day, it's quiet and laid-back.

    Dress Code: casual

    Fado's: Irish Pub/Bar

    by imcginty Written May 19, 2005

    One of the first bars I visited before moving to Austin. They usually have Irish music themed bands playing Sunday through Thursday and a DJ playing various 80's and 90's hits Friday and Saturday. Texas Hold 'em tournament every Monday night and trivia on Wednesday nights.

    Dress Code: I have seen everything from grungy to casual to suits. Depends on the day of the week and the time of day.

    4th Street: 4th Street

    It's a lot like 6 St. as far as being lines with bars. It is a tad bit more of an older crowd which makes it more laid back and relaxing.

    Dress Code: The atmosphere here is a little nicer espacially if it's the weekend. You'll be fine in jeans, but why not dress up a little?!

    Fado's Irish Pub on 4th...

    by AustinGirl Written Aug 26, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fado's Irish Pub on 4th Street; The Speakeasy Club; The Whiskey Bar on 5th; Mellagio's on 6th; Miguel's La Bodega at 4th and Colorado.
    Most of the bars I like are located in the Warehouse District (4th Street and Colorado). They're more upscale than those on 6th street. Fado's is a great Irish Pub w/ Mahogony bars and seats. Great Irish music and a ton of fun! Miguel's La Bodega is the best place to go for some Salsa/Merengue dancing on a Saturday night.

    Dress Code: Austin is casual....don't feel like you ever have to dress up to go out on the town!!!! It took me a while to understand this.

    They have a huge dance floor with the DJ spinning 'popular' music for most of the night. Later, as the evening wears on, he moves onto house, trance, and things of that nature. There are a couple bars inside. It is open until 4am, unlike many of the clubs on 6th Street.

    Dress Code: 'Club' attire. Anything trendy and cool.

    Coyote Ugly, of the movie fame, has opened up in Austin with this barmaid who really gets into her work. It's a fun place for a quick drink... enjoy!

    Dress Code: Come, as you are.

  • I prefer the 4th Street area...

    I prefer the 4th Street area if I'm going downtown. Fado's, Lucky Lounge and the Gingerman are all great bars.
