A best kept downtown speakeasy secret from the rest of the world… but not anymore. The Garage Bar is one of Austin’s tiniest and most elusive bars. Before Citywide Spotlight, visitors may have been inopportune at finding this destination. So why the name Garage Bar? It’ literally inside of a parking garage on Colorado St. and is much classier than might be assumed by the name (which might be by design). For visitors needing help as to what the locals like, just ask a bartender to make an amazing drink. Maybe snag that beverage at the bar that looks like a throne or grab a table in the corner brick room where it is dimly lit to relax.
