Waaahoooooooo – I met the lead singer of Del Castillo at a Monster Mail postal place and he recommended that I go play music at Sam's Town Point on Allred street at the corner of Slaughter and Manchaca. I didn't find my way there for two months but when I did I was greeted like an old friend and was soon listening to awesome live music from fifties to contemporary originals and from country to rock. I will defiantly be visiting there regularly.
Say hello to Wally for me.
Low on formality, this friendly watering hole offers cold beer, darts, pool and live music in a smoker-friendly environment. – In Short
Beer signs, dart boards, wooden paneling and old televisions mounted in the corners set the tone in this friendly neighborhood bar. Filled with tables, the large open room somewhat conceals that the building comprises a pair of double-wide trailers. Twelve different domestic brands of bottled and canned beers are served cold in foam coolers to blue- and white-collar workers of all ages. The old timers mix with young professionals and both tend to greet newcomers.
Kickass dive bar in deep south Austin – There is no longer a membership fee for this classic Texas dive bar! Sitting just feet from the city limits, Sam's is a smoking venue with a greasy spoon kitchen to boot. Cold Pabst for $1.50 and the nicest laidback staff around. They have a full range of beers, but I think it's Bring Your Own Liquor, so call ahead if you are a whisky fan. Good music from Ramsay Midwood on Wednesdays and pool tables in the back to keep ya busy.
I rate it a 10 because it is a no fuss, real deal bar without the meatmarket, hipster scene. Just my style! Most people I know that make it out are in awe of its simplicity and each seem to convert to Sam's Fans upon entering. Come on out!
Fun place – This place is off the beaten path,,very far south, and not easy to find. This is the only bar i have ever been in that is actually a Doublewide trailer..and they have the nerve to charge a "membership" fee..lol only in Texas, huh?..I must say i had a very good time. The bartender was great, informative and friendly, and later on they had Kareoke on this tiny little stage. Very cosy place, reasonable price drinks, great for conversation, and a comfortable place to be.
