Bar 96 is a laid back bar on Rainey Street which you can enjoy day or night. Bridget Dunlap opened this place to be a sports-bar atmosphere and with the huge patio, backyard games, and food trailer, Bar96 aims to please the kid in all of us. Try the Pimm’s Rhubarb Soda and enjoy the relaxed vibe.
Tip: Family and Pet Friendly. Open at 2pm on weekdays and 11am on weekends.
Right down the road from Bar96 is Bangers with live music, sausage and over 100 beers on tap. Rated in 2013 by Austin Chronicle as the Best Place to Take Fido, this place is also a great place to take your family, a group of friends or a romantic date. Take a seat on a communal picnic table amongst their huge patio and try the exotic sausage called South Texas Antelope & Venison Merguez made with red wine, red peppers, cinnamon & cloves and one of Olaf Banger’s original recipes.
Tip: Reservations at Open Table. Sunday brunch available. Check out website for upcoming events.
Down the street from Bangers is Clive Bar, a local favorite for many Austinites. The relaxed patio atmosphere creates the perfect environment for a romantic date or night out with a group of your friends. Live local music plays in the background as you enjoy your cocktail or beer. Check out Austin’s own 512 Pecan Porter on tap, made with Baird’s chocolate and Black Malts.*
Tip: Open daily at 4pm, close at 2am.
All 3 venues are located within 500 feet of 609 Davis Street, Rainey Street District
