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.

Only reason why atmosphere got a 4 was b/c it would get quite loud and made it difficult to have a conversation.

I went to Midnight Cowboy after a recommendation from a friend who lives in Austin. I visited for a few days from Chicago and I had such a great time! I loved the privacy and the mysterious aspect of the whole experience, from finding the speakeasy to being served the delicious and unique drinks. I have already recommended Midnight Cowboy to friends who also want to visit Austin because of the unique experience it offers.

Very cool experience from ringing the service bell for entry, themed libations, and knowing you are in a historic Austin establishment. Check it out!

I wish there were more tableside preparations. The staff seems to be less knowledgeable than they were in my past visits. In the past, I'd get more history of the drink and it's ingredients during the preparation. This time, the one cart drink my table ordered, the presentation and conversation was lacking.

The drinks were amazing and the concept interesting. The atmosphere is quiet and intimate. It was pretty exciting since from the outside you wouldn't know what to expect. I especially appreciate that the staff was attentive but without being annoying. We had a great time! Thanks :)

A truly phenomenal experience for anyone wanting to enjoy a calm relaxing drink with friends, if you want to get some great drinks, and avoid the bother of the loud and obnoxious sports bars or clubs where you can't even get a moment to think.

Great experience, knowledgeable, friendly staff.Could tell that all team members took ownership of guest experience, as we had multiple people stop by to answer questions, refill water, take orders, etc.

Atmosphere is great and the greeting when you arrive is super fun (the speakeasy vibe). I just wish there were more vodka cocktails.

We arrived for our reservation about 10 minutes early and were told that a large private event was currently still going and we would need to go to the back patio and wait. I understand the need to wait given we were 10 minutes early, but as we walked through the bar, only 3 of the booths were taken and one of the back rooms. It was clear there was no party and this was not a great first impression. When our reservation time came around, no one retrieved us from the back. We had to go ask a server if we could be seated. It doesn't seem right that an establishment would insist on taking credit card information in case of a late/no-show customer, but in return doesn't fulfill their end of the bargain by seating reservations promptly. All that being said, once we were seated, the drinks were delightful. I do wish someone would have talked to us more about the history of the bar and the drinks.

The attendant/ server was excellent . He profiled me based on the type of drinks / liquor I like and recommended 2 excellent drinks ...Liked the atmosphere and attention to detail such as which two drinks will pair nicely and also in which progression I should have which drink first and then which drink next . Will be recommending your business to other contacts and friends / contacts that visit your city and looking to go to a great establishment for well made drinks by knowledgeable staff!!! Great job and I will be back when in return to Austin .
