About Midnight Cowboy

Midnight Cowboy is a private, speakeasy-style cocktail bar found in the heart of downtown Austin. While we have a seedy past, we seek to elevate the cocktail experience for all of our guests. Classic, prohibition era cocktails are the foundation of our menu, but we also embrace every opportunity to engage with our guests and introduce new and exciting flavors and ingredients.

We strive to offer a relaxing oasis in the midst of the 6th Street liveliness. Therefore, we do not allow smoking, guns, phone calls, laptops or rowdiness. If you must smoke or make a call, please step outside. We ask that you keep your conversations at a reasonable level and enjoy fine cocktails and the finer company of your companions.

While our cocktails might loosen inhibitions and the building's past might encourage licentiousness, we ask that you refrain from excessive displays of public affection and unwelcome advances towards members of other parties.

Drinks were great! We let the bartenders pick our drinks and they had excellent ideas. This would be a great special event place to get a couple of drinks before dinner.

Absolutely, amazing! We were a party of four in one of the private rooms. That was super cool, but I'd also like to try the main bar area too. Best cocktails we've ever had, and we've had plenty :-). That is not hyperbole. The most important thing is the drinks (amarite?) ... and they were out. of. this. world. Exceptionally creative (I'm talking works of art), always well-balanced, and so delicious. If you think you don't like a spirit (maybe tequila?, maybe gin? maybe bourbon, you monster?), you're wrong. You just haven't had it lovingly prepared for you in a cocktail at the Midnight Cowboy. Don't be an idiot; book your Midnight Cowboy reservation and your flight right now. You're welcome.

Ryan was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcomed. Big thanks to the blonde bartender with a ponytail for letting an extra friend in without too much harp. We were all very impressed and your staff truly made the night special for us.

Great walkthrough of each cocktail we ordered. Loved the historical cocktails as well as the modern take on classics. This place is oasis of cool in the craziness of Dirty Sixth.

While we generally loved our birthday celebration at Midnight Cowboy, we did feel a bit put out by a couple of things. First, we felt rushed by the waitstaff to hurry up and order, despite having made a 2-hour reservation. After ordering our first round, we were treated to table side service, which was fascinating and a real bonus to get to learn about the history of the drinks. On round 2, however, we ordered 4 new drinks hoping for the same, and was told that you only get table side service once. Okay...why? It's not that much harder, and would have been appreciated.

I loved my experience at Midnight Cowboy. At first, I found the process and all the strict rules a bit overwhelming in order to get 1 drink, but once we got there it was a very relaxed atmosphere with excellent service. I enjoyed the exclusivity and being able to actually hold a conversation and catch up with my friends. I would definitely come back again with out of town guests.

It was our first time there, plus we were celebrating a birthday and they went above and beyond to make it feel special. Scott was taking care of us and he brought out champagne to celebrate. If your in Austin, I would definitely check this place out-you won’t be disappointed.

This was a very unique and fun experience and I would come back again if I’m ever back in town. The staff was so friendly and personable and the atmosphere was just awesome. My favorite was just how icognito this place really is!

I travel extensively for work and visiting cocktail bars across the US and Europe is a frequent activity. I've been to many of the "World's Best Bars" and I would, without, hesitation say that Midnight Cowboy is a bar I would recommend. Great service, creative menu, and most importantly well-crafted cocktails
