Hosted in English

What you'll do

Find several hidden-face/speakeasy style bars downtown - stashed inside parking garages, behind bookshelves, down alley ways, pass-code and even riddle protected! We'll have drinks at three!

Meet downtown at Dumont's Down Low (214 W 4th St. Suite B Austin, TX 78701). There, in that clean, well-lighted whiskey bar we'll sit and chat for a few minutes at introducing ourselves and you'll get an idea of what to expect from the places we'll visit.

*Please be on time or come early if you want to order food or a drink at Dumont's.*

Then, we walk to the first bar. All the bars are located within a few blocks of downtown. We'll spend 30-45 minutes in each of three bars, having drinks, learning about the place, and appreciating the aesthetic. Throughout the night we will continue on past a total of seven hidden-face/speakeasy style bars, stopping in some and just stopping to talk about others. The night ends once you get into the third and final bar and get your drinks ordered.

At the end of the Experience I will email you a map with the location of all the stops you made and more! It'll have instructions as to how to get in so that if you're up for more nightlife the party doesn't have to end!
Other things to note
We do not to include drinks to give you a lower price and more choice. Please BRING CASH. Prices vary by venue but $10-20 per drink (including a 20% tip) is a good guess.

Where you'll be

We will visit bars behind bookshelves, built into parking garages, downstairs in basements, in back alleys, locked behind keypads, buzzers and riddles.

These hidden-face bars range from spots you just need to know where to look for, to bars you need an invitation and a reservation to get inside of. I can't say anymore due to the hush nature of the speakeasy ;)

NOTE: Bars' atmospheres vary by time of night, night of the week and week of the year

A great way to see a different side of Austin. Ariana was knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to have as our personal tour guide. I would highly recommend this for those looking to avoid the usual craziness of 6th street.

What a way to ring in the New Year! Our host was friendly and knowledgeable about the area, its speakeasies, and the history surrounding it. The locations were memorable and we felt like we really got to explore some authentic and unique locations.

We absolutely loved the experience. Ari was a wonderful guide. She really knows her stuff. She is an insider at these locations. The places we went were better than we expected. So unique. You really are getting into places you would never access without this tour. The only reason we are not giving it a complete 5 stars is that we were surprised by the extra costs at one of the locations (more than the $10-$20 per drink in the experience description). The last place also did not give us everything that we were told we would get with this extra price (which was set per person). When we were given the check ($180 for 4 ppl) and curtly told we would have to leave soon, we were confused and had to ask about the difference between what we were told by our guide and what we ended up receiving. They then acknowledged that we had not gotten everything and we could "take it to go". Many tables were open so we asked if we could just stay and enjoy the food while sitting there. After checking, they allowed us to do that and ended up being apologetic and incredibly gracious. It was just an unfortunately awkward way to end a truly incredible evening. I would just be more clear in the event description about the total extra cost that will be required for the evening. We could cover it, but I could imagine that being incredibly stressful for some people who had carefully planned so that they could financially afford such a unique and special experience.
