Truly a hidden gem, Garage Cocktail Bar is concealed speakeasy-style within a massive parking garage amid the hustle and bustle of downtown Austin. Evoking a somewhat mysterious yet cordial and cozy vibe, Garage, with its industrial-tinged elements and midcentury-modern design characteristics, is a feast for the senses, and even garnered accolades from Architectural Digest as one of the best speakeasy bars in America. Despite its stylish, dapper décor, Garage’s most alluring attribute is its dizzying array of craft cocktail offerings, meticulously prepared and strikingly presented, including the Indian Paintbrush, a colorful tribute to Central Texas’ scarlet-hued springtime flower, featuring a hand-blended mix of vodka, grapefruit juice, lime juice, rosemary syrup and Peychaud’s Bitters—a cocktail so dazzling, it was awarded the title of 2015 Official Drink of Austin.
