  • Done up in white on antique white, Swan Dive is the place for all things piquant. Specializing in the eccentric, atmospheric, and anachronistic, they book music that marches to a different off-beat.
  • Swan Dive is the closest thing Austin has to a vintage speakeasy. Inside the powder-white boutique bar, you'll find a selection of hipster cocktails and a good spirits selection.
  • This band has a great atmosphere and fun cocktails! Check out what's going on here during SXSW at do512.com
  • GGAllen played here when it was the Cavity Club. First time I went to the "rest room" someone was shooting up. That was the early 90s. Amazingly clean now!
  • Check out hipster karaoke on Tuesdays!

  • Great sound and pretty interior.
  • It's cute now but not worth $6 beers. Get over yourself
  • A cool place but not totally my vibe, most of the music was alternative.
  • Cheap drinks and good bands! Took me by surprise.
  • If the line at Barbarella is long, go through here - they're connected in the back!
  • Good vibes, music variety, great people and plenty of atmosphere. One hell of a place to spend NYE. Thanks for the awesome evening y'all.
