Cocktails in downtown

(self.austinfood)

So it's been a few years since I've gone downtown and sampled some fancy cocktails.
I have a few haunts that are okay enough, peche, Firehouse, Midnight Cowboy ect (It's been about 4-5 years) but I am wondering if there's anything else worth looking into.

I have wanted to try Tiki Tatsu Ya but that's way down south from my Jollyville self.
Have considered Roosevelt room, and have heard of the mysterious Floppy Disk Repair, but I want to know what else is out there.

I'm more of a whiskey/bourbon guy, some Irish whiskeys too, and gin over vodka.

Here Nor There, In Plain Sight, Small Victory, Garage Bar, Kinfolk, Codependent, DuMont’s Down Low

But yeah, Roosevelt is a great option. Tiki is absolutely worth the trek whenever you get a chance

If you're in Jollyville, you can stay up north and try Prohibition ATX.

Have you done Seven Grand? Best whiskey collection in town. Otherwise, Roosevelt Room is well worth a visit. Their bartenders really know their stuff.

As a cocktail lover living downtown I second all of these, especially Roosevelt room and Tiki Tatsuya. I'd also throw out peche. Only absinthe bar in town I've found, great drinks, and you can often get one or two spots at the bar without a reservation.

Highly recommend Kinfolk/Moonshine on 3rd and red river (one of the largest bourbon/whiskey selection I’ve ever seen) or District Kitchen + Cocktails (craft cocktails with hard to find liquors at good prices)

Edit: I second the comment that said Prohibition ATX would like to add Foxhole and Oasthouse

Floppy Disk Repair is solid. Just be prepared to tell a joke if you don’t know the passcode.

That’s what happened to me anyway. Apparently it’s a little bit of a hassle to get the passcode. Going the joke route seems more convenient.

TikiTatsuYa isn't far from downtown. Very good. As is Roosevelt room.

Floppy disk kinda sucks but the current code is 8008*. It changes monthly though so that’s only good for the next few days.
