Austin >Treasure Island Pirate Bar
Asian Girls Beware. If you are asian and a girl, you might get turned away at the door even if you are 21+ and have a valid ID. Why? Apparently all asian girls look the same; so we must all lie and trade IDs so underage individuals can get into clubs. Yeah...right. I'm 21, soon to be 22, and I was turned away at the door because the bouncers did not believe it was me on my Texas Drivers License. Thanks guys, for putting a halt to my evening. You just lost yourself another customer.
Horribly rude staff!.
On my birthday, several of my cousins, as well as my brother, came with me to go barhopping on Friday night that week. We were all having a good time when we ended our night at Treasure Island. I had been there before and the bartender did tricks with the bottles so it seemed like an interesting place to come back to. It ended up being a bad choice though.
At 2:00 AM, it's standard that all bars on 6th Street stop serving alcohol. Usually, they give you a few minutes to pay your tab, drink some water, and take another bathroom break. Not so at Treasure Island. We were rudely shoved out the door. I mean they physically pushed us out. What were we doing? I was taking pictures with my cousins, very innocent smiles, and drinking water. We weren't being rowdy at all. It wasn't just us, it was everyone, to be fair. Still, they even pulled the glass out of water out of my brother's hand! Come on! We just spent money buying a couple of rounds of shots, why kick us out so quickly?!
When we get outside, we complain to the bouncer and he says, "Yeah, we are ***holes. If you don't like it, go somewhere else." I am not exaggerating, those were his precise words. So I encourage you to not support this bar. There are plenty of others on 6th that treat their customers with some degree of respect.
Hypnotinc neon and beer dominate at this Sixth Street bar..
Glowing neon bubbling wall objects make Treasure Island stand out over the multitude of Sixth Street bars. The beer menu is dominated by domestics but does feature a few nice imports including Guinness and Newcastle. Although the Island does not offer any food service, a cold beer or cocktail and plenty of room to enjoy it can be made even better by nightly discounts.
