Keep the fire going, and after an intimate dinner at The Backspace, visit the Firehouse Lounge around the corner.  Based out of the old Austin Firehouse building, originally built in 1885, this casual lounge feels like you are drinking artisan cocktails with your closest friends’ living room, listening to great jazz or live music.  A perfect way to spend a night.

TIP:  It’s a speakeasy bar, so enter through the Firehouse Hostel and doors and find the handle to open up to the bar located on the “bookshelf”. Open Mon-Tues 5pm-2am, Wed-Thurs 2pm-2am, Fri-Sun 12pm-2am.
