Great rooftop bar close to UT's campus.
You can find this bar just north of the Drag. They have great deals throughout the week, including dollar wells on Tuesdays. If you're looking for a place to watch a sports game, check out Rooftop Austin. Big screens are placed strategically around the bar, both indoors downstairs and outdoors on the rooftop. There are bars both inside and out, each manned by a very friendly bartender. It would be a great place for a study break midweek or if you're looking for a good shot within walking distance of west or north campus. Beware the heat, though. They don't have any fans or misters on the rooftop. I recommend taking refuge downstairs until the weather cools off!
