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.
Great wait staff
Cocktails were delicious, and the bartenders were impressive and knowledgeable! The entrance is super shady, further aiding the ambience. You would totally miss it if you didn't know what to look for.
Loved the decor and vibe!
Love coming here whenever I have something to celebrate with folks.
All four of us LOVED LOVED loved it! The servers were GREAT and knowledgeable! The drinks were good! The menu super creative! We simply just loved it!!!! Such an experience! Definitely coming back next time I’m in town, hard to beat! Thank you!
I feel terrible that I can't remember her name but the lady bartender here is tops!
Scott and Bjorn were amazing hosts!!! We will be back soon!
Spectacular service and some of the best cocktails to be found in Austin!
Service was very good and atmosphere fun and relaxing
the whole experience was awesome from start to finish!
Wonderful recommendations, great service, lovely atmosphere.
Great atmosphere and good value for excellent cocktails
The service was absolutely amazing! The three staff members we interacted with on Sunday night gave us a very welcoming and informative experience. I will recommend this place to anyone visiting Austin! For something that on the surface is intimidating, our experience was warm and non pretentious. My favourite part was speaking with one gentlemen about what I was in the mood for;after a talk about how he crafts the perfect drink, he came back with the exact flavours I was looking for! Thank you for an amazing experience Midnight Cowboy, I will 100% be back!
It was a great time
We had an awesome time! The young lady who served us was very friendly and even got us dinner recommendations. Legit the best drinks I’ve had and well worth the money.
Excellent service and drink suggestions
Fun atmosphere, great service!
Great ambience inside the door. Service was informative on not on menu, drinks. We tried 2 a piece during 1 hour stay . Just right till you have to step out on 6th at 11:00 kind of kills the vibe. Where is that secret back exit?
This was a really nice change of pace and a hidden gem. The cocktails were amazing and the service was very friendly. Would definitely come back again.
The service and drinks here are amazing! We are definitely going back.
Very personable and friendly service, great drinks and a fantastic experience overall
I went with 4 friends and ended up in the private booths in the back. The bartender was great and we enjoyed the punch bowl!
A favorite of our Austin trip! Wasn’t sure what to expect going in but was impressed by the surprise table side service and the delightful drinks. Will definitely return next time I’m in town. Easily the best thing on 6th street.
