The Firehouse Lounge, right around the corner from The Backspace, is a great way to keep the fire going on your date. 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”. Reservations via Open Table.
Esther’s Follies, located further down Dirty 6th Street, easily falls in the Top 10 Things To Do by many Austinites. It is one of the legendary venues which makes Austin unique and fun, year after year.
