Foursquare Tips

  • How can you go wrong with a former massage parlor/brothel converted to a speakeasy from the people behind the Drafthouse? NOTE: Have to visit midnightcowboymodeling.com for reservations.
  • Some of the best cocktails in Austin. Worth the find! I spotted this place on my Supper app: http://supper.mx/places/midnight-cowboy-austin/
  • Go often. Make friends. Own it.
  • Favorite bar in Austin. Former brothel. The Joe Buck is my favorite cocktail anywhere.
  • 'It's nice to have a place where I can have a conversation,' says Contigo bartender Houston Eaves.
  • Smoke & Mirrors is incredible. It's honey, molasses, smoke, and lasciviousness in a coupe glass. Don't miss it.
  • Smoke and Mirrors: Made tableside with 12 year old Scotch, Duque de Carmona (a sweet orange sherry), Benedictine, and a sarsparilla bitters made by Jason Steves of Bar Congress.
  • What once was a seedy massage parlor is now a cocktail haven for Austin, brought to life and transformed by the founder of the movie theater/restaurant/bar chain known as Alamo Drafthouse.
  • ask them to customize a drink by telling your bartender your cocktail preferences: type of liquor, booziness, citrus level, herbaceousness
  • Reservations are necessary for large groups. We had 8 people, and the biggest room could fit no more. Totally worth it.
  • If the red light is on there's an opening! Just buzz for "Harry Craddock" for entry.
  • Great bartenders, great vibe, great time.
  • Glorious drinks and service. Ace.
  • Check out Midnight Cowboy as seen on Best Bars in America
  • Fit 8 in the "large room" very snuggly. Very laid back place.
  • Really awesome place! Jungle Bird was the best drink at our table.
  • Best. Speakeasy. Ever.
  • A former massage parlor/brothel converted to a speakeasy from the people behind the Drafthouse. NOTE: They won't open the door if you don't have a reservation from http://midnightcowboymodeling.com.
  • Courting Two Sisters: The two sisters refer to the sweet and dry vermouths that act as the base of this drink. Tenneyson absinthe and an orange twist complete it.
  • Hauptmann Cocktail: In this frothy cocktail, herbal Ransom Old Tom gin pairs with nutty orgeat, fresh orange juice, and orange bitters.
