Austin >The Butterfly Bar
Family-style boozin': The Butterfly Bar feels like a little bit like how I envision Salinger's hermit lair, with chairs and lamps made for studying, and a wide bar made for drinking until the wee hours. The tables here are almost all picnic tables, ensuring that you make some friends -- friends that might later challenge you to a ping pong game, which is also how I like to imagine Salinger spending his days.
Loooove this place! Great sangria and comfy terrace!. This is the coolest, most low key bar I know. It is located in the Vortex Theater on Mannor Rd, so it is frequented by an artistic, or art enthusiast-tree hughers crowd, and you might end up seeing an edgy performance even if that was not your original plan. For me that is a plus! Although it is very different, it has a bit of a "Cheers" feeling to it. The owner is really nice, and she will chat a bit with you; the place is not crowded or loud, so you can have a conversation with your friends at the bar or at a table, and you soon notice there are a lot of locals. It has the loveliest terrace and a big patio, with some hula hoops included, in case you want to practice your skills. Did I say their white sangria is great!!
