In the mood for something fancier and more intimate? Midnight Cowboy is located on 6th Street in Austin, about a 30-minute drive from the venue, and it is one of the oldest speakeasies in Austin. It was originally a brothel masquerading as a massage parlor and is now a lounge with a secret entrance, old-school cocktails, and a haunted history. The space is small, so make sure to make a reservation.

  1. Rockabilly Brewing

1133 CR 137, Hutto, TX 78634

Rockabilly prides itself on being the neighborhood watering hole and was started with a husband and wife team as a thank-you to wedding guests.

Rockabilly has several trivia nights and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and leashed dogs are welcome.
