What you'll do

Find several hidden-face/speakeasy style bars downtown - stashed inside parking garages, behind bookshelves, down alley ways, pass-code protected and private clubs. We'll have drinks at three!

Meet downtown and we'll sit and chat for a few minutes at introducing ourselves and you'll get an idea of what to expect from the places we'll visit.

Then, we walk to the first bar. All the bars are located within a few blocks of downtown. We'll spend 30-45 minutes in each of three bars, having drinks, learning about the place, and appreciating the aesthetic. Throughout the night we will continue on past a total of seven hidden-face/speakeasy style bars, stopping in some and just stopping to talk about others. The night ends once you get into the third and final bar and get your drinks ordered.

We do not to include drinks to give you a lower price and more choice. Please bring cash. Prices vary by venue but $10-20 per drink (including a 20% tip) is a good ballpark.

Where you'll be

We will visit bars behind bookshelves, built into parking garages, downstairs in basements, in back alleys, locked behind keypads, buzzers and memberships.

These hidden-face bars range from spots you just need to know where to look for, to bars you need an invitation and a reservation to get inside of. I can't say anymore due to the hush nature of the speakeasy ;)

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 320 reviews.

I am not a person who likes to go out drinking so I was skeptical about this experience. However it was one of the best things I did in Austin. I made a bunch of new friends and felt so comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful tour, Ariana took us to some hidden gems, and gave us a lot of recommendations for other bars, restaurants and places, she is very knowledgeable, funny and positive, she brought the group together, also the other ladies in the group were delightful, time flew by. highly recommended whether you are alone in Austin or with a group of friends.

Pretty coooool. I don’t even drink and I liked this. Booked for my girlfriend and she liked it very much, I even got some mock tails. Went well and they were very accommodating. A+

You can tell that a lot of thought went into this experience. These aren’t just places that everyone has access to. It is an amazing representation of being apart of the community and immersing yourself in its culture. Ariana had a lot of knowledge and you can tell she was very passionate about it.

This tour is a must do if you want a local's recommendation on bars and restaurants to visit. It was so much more than just a speakeasy tour. Arianna is an awesome host, the pace of the tour was perfect, and her knowledge of the Austin entertainment scene was amazing.

Ariana was fantastic! This was the second time we did the tour and both times were informative, fun, with great drinks. Each place was unique and Ariana had tons of helpful information about navigating the city and all the places to go.
