  • Did you come here on a date? You're weird, but good luck. The jukebox might have something to set the mood. If not, talk about politics. You're safe in the Cloak Room.
  • Underground bar where something weird is bound to happen. Be careful, the bartender may lock you inside while avoiding a TABC raid.
  • Don't ask them if they are open.
  • If you're offended by the bartender you probably prefer places like Chilis or Applebee's.
  • Bev doesn't give recommendations -- but ordering a White Russian is a solid choice. They are large and strong.
  • Red rockets.......
  • Great underground bar. The lady bartender is very rude.
  • Steps away from the Capitol, Politicos are often seen here discussing "Cloak Room" Talk. You never know who you may bump into.
  • Looking for a drink on Sunday morning? Shhhh, I won't tell.
  • Bartender was incredibly rude to us. Everything we said to the bartender resulted in rolling eyes, slamming our drinks/IDs down on the bar, and finally "finish your drinks and get the fuck out"
  • Great little basement spot by the state capitol.
  • A dark little hidey hole next to the Texas state capital. Inexpensive no fuss cocktails or beer. Great juke box. Atmospheric.
  • Check out The Cloak Room as seen on Best Bars in America
  • First time visiting, and the bartender was a sweetheart! She's old school - there since '89. Dark, moody, underground dive. Dudes at the bar talking in hushed tones about Masons. Cool & weird.
  • Awesome hidden gem by the capitol. Tell Bev I said hi.
  • Someone pooped in the bartender's cereal
  • Don't bother. The lady that tends bar closed my tab that didn't exist and then told me well I couldnt get a drink because she closed my non existent tab. Very rude individual
  • I will be judged when you walk in but put a dollar in the jukebox and you'll be fine. Also, don't ask about anything ginger (beer or ale). They don't have it.
  • I meant Colorado Bulldogs. Sincere apologies to America.
  • valentine's dessert: irish bulldogs at the historical and quaint cloak room.
