“Worth the hike.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

On a recent stopover in Austin, my fiancé & I spied the rooftop bar at Speakeasy from the street and decided the nighttime cityscape eye candy would be probably worth paying a $5 cover and hiking up a few flights of stairs. We were not disappointed! It's beautiful up there... Elegant yet cozy. And it has, of course, an incredible view. I found the bartenders to be a little unfriendly, but really nothing could have spoiled our experience! Worth it as a visitor to the city for sure.

“Don't go on a Sunday!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2009

We got there around 9 p.m. There were only about 4 other people there. We waited around til almost 10 p.m. and only a few more showed up. It is all outdoors with a romantic atmosphere, candles, palm trees, and the open air/space overlooking the beautiful downtown city. Be ready to climb about 70 or 80 steps!
