WHY HERE: This cozy speakeasy opened in a former brothel and is about the size of a train car, which means snagging one of the black-studded booths is in high demand. But once you sit down and order a drink such as the Proper Introduction (Blume Marillen apricot eau-de-vie, cognac, Caperitif, lemon, apricot jam, sparkling wine, ricotta honey, sugar and ginger), you’ll understand why it has been an Austin favorite since opening in 2012.

WHY NOW: In a world saturated with social media and technology, it’s nice to enter a place that doesn’t allow phone calls, laptops or bright and annoying screens. Not only that, but the bar has pushed to lower its carbon footprint by using leftover pineapple to make tepache, serving drinks with metal or paper straws and dehydrating leftover garnishes to be used in other drinks.
