THis bar is great for lounging as well as shakn' it on the dance floor. Come see why this place has been...

Secretly operating in places as basements, office buildings and abandon buildings, alley way entrances were used to let patr...ons in. Though you needed to whisper the pass word of the night, knock three times or have a membership card to gain access. An owl behind the bar meant it was the place to be. (Look above our bar!). Speakeasy is composed of three levels including the Music Lounge,...

This multi-level club is situated in the Warehouse district of Austin. After entering through the alleyway behind Congress Avenue, listen to various live swing bands.

Editorial reviews from the web (4)

Regulars recommend you "look your best" at this "classy" Warehouse District multilevel spot sporting ground-floor rooms with "old-school charm" where "top-notch" bands and DJs play, plus a mezzanine and a rooftop lounge with a "cool vibe" and "killer" view of Downtown (though be prepared "to climb some stairs"); while some grouse the "prices aren't the best", loyalists insist it's "always a fun...

There's something for everyone at this three-tiered, hush-hush lounge. Cocktails on the extensive drink list are named for gangsters and bootleggers. The vintage posters and small round tables further evoke the Prohibition era on the main level. Overlook it from the low-ceilinged mezzanine. Or climb 59 stairs (yes, 59) to the palm-fringed terrace and you get what the real draw is here: people...

Citysearch Editorial Review

From the red-roped entrance in an unassuming alley off Congress Avenue to the celebrated rooftop terrace, Speakeasy proudly exhibits its unique character. The convenient downtown location, drink...

The walk down a dark alley in the Warehouse District to reach this multilevel club is all part of the 1920s Prohibition theme, which, mercifully, is not taken to an obnoxious extreme. Lots of dark wood and red velvet drapes help create a swanky atmosphere. Walk up two flights of narrow stairs to enjoy a drink or dance on the romantic Evergreen terrace. Lately the club has been signing some good...

I'm neutral about this spot. It's not really my scene. They have live music and a lot of space to move around and explore. The second level has a bowling alley and foosball. If I was to go again, I would hang out on the roof. The lounge-like atmosphere is a great break from the busy congress street.

This is a really fun bar! There are alot of games you can play so you can waste hours here. The downstairs turns into a live music venue, complete with dancing. The middle floor is where the games are; they have darts, fusball, bowling, shuffleboard, and chess. Then upstairs is an awesome rooftop complete with corners to lounge in. The drinks can get pricey, but you are in a prime location and...

I wish we could've checked out the whole bar but the inside floors were booked with a private party, which left us with the rooftop. The L O N G trek up those stairs gave me a nice workout, and...

My boyfriend and I recently visited Austin and decided to do the whole 6th street thing. After wandering aimlessly for a while, we decided that maybe that wasn't our kind of area. College me would...

Not too impressed, really. We went there to catch one of our favorite Austin bands, More Cowbell. The place was dirty, too many of the patrons were out-of-control drunk, there was a hole on the...
