WATCH YOUR CREDIT CARD CHARGE – Everything they say is true about this bar. I love this bar- or used to, until they charged me double on my credit card for my bar tab, causing my bank account to overdraft and incur multiple non-sufficient funds charges. I would have saved writing this review until I spoke with the manager and given him/her a chance to respond, but it seems the manager spends 1 mystery hour per week there and the employees who have answered my calls don't seem concerned about tracking him down for me. So yeah, enjoy Club de Ville, but you might want to pay with cash.
The posh and the Average Joes enjoy classic cocktails on a picturesque patio. – In Short
An even mix of Austin's pretty people and regular folks makes up the crowd. Set below a limestone cliff, De Ville's large courtyard area is furnished with tables and chairs from Grandma's backyard. The bar fills up quickly Thursday through Sunday evenings, with quite a bit of swank but very little pretense. During daylight hours, drinks are purchased at the bar. In the evening, servers with the best memories in Austin work the patio area.
Awesome Patient Bartenders and Friendly Staff – Thank you for keeping my credit card safe...
I left my credit card here a couple of nights ago after a few too many with my blind date. Thanks Club Deville for keeping it and better yet CALLING me to let me know it was there. You guys are way cool...now can you help me find my car?
stiff drinks, by that little hottie joey – friendly atmosphere, especially near the bar where i found myself drawn all evening to that master conversationalist, joey. outside seating was great but as i mentioned before the view behind the bar, though short in stature was SPECTACULAR! would highly recomend to all crowds looking for a relaxed lounge atmosphere. love you ffag -a- beefy!hookytau.
Club Deville sans Miss Emily – I think Club Deville is great with strong drinks and the atmosphere to match. The best improvement myself and several friends have noted as of late: Miss Emily no longer frequents and/or has her karaoke there. Don't get me wrong, I like karaoke, and most people, but Miss Emily's attitude toward the patrons was horrible! Several occasions I witnessed people being degraded, pushed, threatened, by her and for no apparent reason. Maybe people also didn't want to pay to see her in particular? A suggestion would be karaoke or something like it with a fresher face.
i heart deville – my fav bar, hands down. the staff rules (especially notable is the extra sassy object of everyone's desire, lana) the drinks are stiff, the music isn't a random mix of crappy jam bands and the place isn't overrun by frat boys run wild. people here are actually, dare i say it, friendly. what a concept. when you're tired of the same sixth street scene, this is the place to be.
86 Karaoke – Hey guys, sorry to break the news but we haven't had karoke here on a regular basis in over a year. It was popular for awhile, but no one seems to want to pay a cover to hear non-professional crooning and we needed to rent a PA and pay the DJ.
We do host karaoke with a live band sporadically for special occasions so keep and eye out for posters advertising it, and other carefully-chosen live bands. Come play on the patio where the dark red lighting makes everyone look hot, the drinks aren't watered down and the playlist isn't controlled by people who will play "Hotel California" twice an hour.
p.s. I promise the barstaff does not hate you.
Much love. – I have been here in Austin for 5 years now and there is not a bar in Austin like this one. The staff is perfect. The girls that work the bar and wait are beautifull. The drinks are stiff and worth every penny. The music this great. If you hate a yuppie then don't worry they are gone by 10p. The crowd after 10p is the best crowd around.
Nice atmosphere, stiff drinks. – The indoor area is extra dark, making it a great spot for a hidden rendezvous. The back patio is built into a sheer cliff and it is usually really crowded, but people are cool about sharing tables.
