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.
Experience was great, but drinks were a bit pricey and I did have to flag down the server to order a second.
My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience! Great cocktails, service, and overall atmosphere. We will definitely come back the next time we visit Austin.
First time for my wife and I but will come back next trip to Austin. It was an interesting and unique experience. Watch the bar tender work his magic was very impressive.
One of my favorite experiences while visiting Austin. Amazing waitress/bartender service - she was so knowledgeable and nice. Loved absolutely everything about this place.
Nice place. Fun time
Always a good time! My favorite bar in Austin. Love the craft cocktails and speakeasy-ness of it. Will definitely be back. Don't miss this stop while in Austin!
Service is awesome. One of the cocktail artists was mixing up a few drinks. My sometimes precious friend said, “could you go easy on the sweetness for me?” and the mixologist replied, “sir we will make these drinks as they were intended to be made.” That was awesome. Ha!
My second time here! I appreciate the ambience tucked away from the rest of the madness of 6th street. Love the copy in the menu, always.
Amazing atmosphere. Boozy drinks. Great service. This place is a must for date nights or special occasions. The time and effort put into the menu blew my mind. You hardly see that attention to detail anywhere.
Staff did a great job!!! Drinks were fantastic!!! My wife and I had a great time. Thank You
really fun experience. our server was really great.
A unique experience! We loved it!
You guys have crafted the perfect getaway. Everything from the decor, to the glassware, to what the bartenders are wearing, was top notch. Keep up the great work. I only wish I lived in Austin so I could come back next weekend to keep trying all your cocktails.
Great Austin gem
Best cocktails I’ve ever had and phenomenal presentation.
Atmosphere has always been very important to me. Depending on the company, I most like environments that are private, quite, and romantic. It’s a good recipe for even better conversations. I always enjoy company more when I’m at midnight cowboy. 10/10
Very informative server. She was a pleasure to have serve us.
We really appreciated the friendly service and relaxed vibe. And the cocktails were fab! Can’t wait to return!
Love this place and the atmosphere
Like the new menu.
Me and my brother visited from Washington state for his 21st birthday and had a great time. I loved the laid-back atmosphere amidst all the action just outside the door.
We really enjoyed the drinks made tableside. Steve was amazing.
Simply brilliant. Amazing drinks, friendly and knowledgeable staff, good prices. couldn't ask for more.
Our second experience at Midnight Cowboy did not disappoint! We had the same mixologist as last January and he certainly knows his concoctions. I have recommended this to many. Don’t miss it!!
