What you'll do

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

Meet downtown and 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.

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.

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 ballpark.

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 memberships.

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 ;)

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 345 reviews.

This was the highlight of my entire Austin trip! There was so much detail and passion that went on in the tour. Ariana was so knowledgeable and personable. I loved every minute of the tour. Can’t wait to go back and do it again!

Ariana (cohost) was amazing. She knew every detail of the drink’s menu. Her passion for bartending and speakeasies adds value to the tour. I even test her asking for a secret drink suggestion for me and she nailed it. Recommended for everyone. Learned history, lots of details of new drinks and even some spooky haunting stories.everything flowed so well.

Ariana was the perfect host! We saw three amazing speakeasy’s, learned about the history along the way and had some one-of-a-kind drinks. Great way to see parts of Austin we probably would not have seen and she gave us restaurant recommendations along the way.
