We stayed at the Omni Hotel across the street and rolled into CU29 late at the recommendation of the hotel. We were overtired, and had traveled all day, but were not ready to turn in...so we purposely headed to a bar without live music (at the time) to relax. Fantastic mixologist shook up two rounds of wildly creative cocktails using... More

Some co-workers and I arrived on a business trip to Austin late on a Tuesday evening, and wanted to find a spot for a quick drink. It was about 11:30pm and our hotel bar was closing, but the font-desk person at the hotel suggested that we try CU29, which was just a short walk away. It was a nice night... More

A little off 6th street and well worth visiting to see the bartenders making cocktails which are works of art and also for the very friendly service they give. Thank you Bel, Irene and Sarah for a great time in Austin.

Stopped in here on the way back to our hotel. It's in Brazos only a block off sixth street so easy to get to. An enormous liquor selection. They had some beers that were decent, but this is not a brew pub. My friend loves an old fashion and apparently they make a great one. Plenty of high end scotches... More

This place was a complete surprise! Firstly, it is way may upscale than you would imagine from the name or just peering in from the street. Secondly, it was almost empty on a Saturday night?! I really liked the aesthetic of this place first and foremost! There was a sort of "crowd" of uppity types or the type that think... More

We ducked into this place because it was near our hotel and needed an upgrade from walking down 6th street. SO glad we did! They had live music (a little loud for the small size of the place) but the cocktails were amazing! They had all these copper bowls hanging (Copper = cu) and I thought it was just for... More
