A brilliant place, and the original Rainey St. house-bar. It's very sad that it's being torn down next month so that a condo can be put up instead...

Very cool old house turned into a bar. We came on a Thursday night, friendly bartender serving ice cold beers, no pretentious people, and abdecent band playing in the backyard. Only complaint was that we got more than few bug bites so if sitting outside bring some bug spray or get eaten alive

My wife and I were looking for a late lunch on a Saturday and this place was recommended for the taco stand in the back of the bar. We had the tacos al pastor and fish tacos, and both were phenomenal. We enjoyed hanging out in the back yard drinking a few beers and eating good food.

We stopped at Lustre Pearl after dinner one night during F1 weekend and really enjoyed the relaxed laid back atmosphere. The huge open back yard part was great for sitting and enjoying drinks after the day and when it got cold, they brought out some heaters. I also liked practicing some ping pong on the table they had set up... More

My friends and I recently went to Lustre Pearl when we were in town for ACL, and what a great bar that is off the beaten path from the traditional 6th Street! The environment was laid back, fun, beer was ice-cold, and drinks were delicious! There is a nice outdoor area in the back for enjoying the drinks. Would definitely... More

One of the the best spots in Austin to relax and grab a beer with a few friends. Tucked behind all of the action of 6th Street, this place is perfect for after-dinner drinks.

My husband and I found this bar on our last trip to Austin. We loved it! We're not the kind of people that like loud, crazy, smoke filled bars. We like to be able to hold an audible conversation while enjoying our drinks...lol! This place was perfect! It looks like someone's house, not a bar. We enjoyed our drinks in... More

Great location little bit south of the city centre, approx. 10 minutes from convention center. Outdoor area with live bands. Well assorted bar with international premium vodkas, single malts and other spirits. Interesting mix of people, little bit older than on 6th street- and less screamish...Congratulations to Chet Flowers for making this one of the best night spots in town!

Lustre Pearl is a bit off the beaten path in Austin, you should definitely Pedi-Cab it over there. For those who love the 6th Street scene or people that just want to relax, it works for both. It is a grouping of suburban houses with large backyards that have been gutted and turned into bars with wide open spaces and... More
