Stopped by after dinner for drinks and had a wonderful time. Our server, Daniel, was very helpful with suggestions for cocktails. Honestly, I don't remember the names of the cocktails but between us, we tried 4 different ones, and they were all good--different combinations than we'd tried previously. We will be going back soon. They have music on Thurs and... More

We swung by East Side Showroom for a cheeky cocktail on our way downtown. I really dug the speakeasy vibe of the place, and my old-fashioned was suitably well made for the price. Not the kind of place I could afford to drink on the regular, but definitely worth a stop if you're craving a good cocktail or wanting to... More

Ask the bartender your preference and he/she will fix you a drink. Signature cocktails are all their own mixes and seasonal. Grab a drink at the bar and go to the cozy patio at the end of the bar.

Great place to Meet up for happy hour with friends. Simple menu and happy hour prices are good value. The Oysters were decent although on the small side. Worth a try especially if you like cocktails.

After a tremendous dinner at Qui, we weren't ready to wrap up our evening. Our server at Qui recommended the East Side Showroom as a sexy little joint. She was exactly right! We walked into live jazz in a perfect atmosphere. We were seated in the extended section and we were extremely happy with the selection. We chose from the... More

completely different restaurant, recommend to visit the website as the menu items may vary per season/month. Awesome happy hour that ranges from moscow mules to old fashioned. Brace yourselves for a good time

I went here after several friends recommended I visit on my way through Austin. The cocktail list is well thought out. I ordered several different bourbon drinks and they were all amazing. The decor is very cool as well. Very industrial/vintage. Cocktails start at $9 and they do have a food menu, although I didn't get to check that out.... More

Great place to chill out with great cocktails and good music. Book table before as it gets reaally crowded. Food platea are really small but tasty. Not out of this world but good enough to have a great time

I'd never been here before (or even heard of the place), but was invited for a friend's birthday party before NYE. I have to say, I can't wait to go back. The menu is rather eclectic (cassoulet, with quail and goat sausage? Yum!), and the prices can get carried away ($4 for extra bread?!?), but the atmosphere and the food... More

Also small plates available. I loved the craft cocktails, but wasn't overly impressed with the small plates. If tongue is your thing, you may have a different opinion. The service was good and the decor was awesome. I felt like I was in a 50's circus.
