Weather Up Austin offers something a little bit upscale yet delightfully comfortable on the city’s East Side. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time when you sip on a turn-of-the-century style specialty cocktail which has been perfectly concocted, down to the ice in the glass.

This thriving little East Austin joint has a NY counterpart, and brings with it some of the big city sophistication and combines it with Texas hospitality. ┬áVisitors to Weather Up love that their drinks are served by friendly bartenders and waitresses. And the selection is bountiful – whiskey, scotch, vodka, rum – whatever your spirit of choice there is a drink for you to savor.

You’ll want to check out Weather Up’s Happy Hours, Sunday through Thursday, for seven dollar cocktails. Try out a happy hour on the patio – it’s a lovely place to sit for an extended time, whether you’re sipping on an Old Fashioned, a Manhattan, or something else.
