B.D. Riley’s, Austin

Named for Bessie Dee Riley, the daughter of an Irish immigrant to Texas, B.D. Riley’s boasts an impressive stock of beer and Irish whiskey. Sourcing much of the interior directly from Ireland, the bar’s proprietors have succeeded in making the place both authentic and singular. The menu is a favorite of actual Irish expats, and has won awards saying as much. Of course, it being Austin and all, there’s great music as well.
