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.
We had a really great first visit!
Amazing experience from the moment we walked in until we left. Atmosphere was great and the service was phenomenal. Highly recommend if you’re in Austin.
One of the coolest places I’ve been in Austin!
Amazing! Coming back here again for sure!
great service and unique drinks, we will surely be back!
Such a great experience! A true speakeasy feel hidden away on 6th street with personal and attentive service. We were taken on a cocktail journey like no other!
The drinks were enticingly delicious, and we cannot wait to go back!
Great for a group. We had 5 of us in a small private room. Servers were really attentive and knowledgeable, with great recommendations. This place is a ‘themed speakeasy’ that doesn’t overdo itself. Very cool, very relaxed, great drinks
We had heard from friends about the atmosphere of this place, so we were looking forward to it. But the level of thought and detail they put in their special themed menu was beyond anything we expected. We were truly impressed and are planning to come again soon!
Great to get back to the Cowboy. Missed having a two hour experience, but as usual it did not disappoint. Cheers!!
The service was impeccable. All the drinks we were served were unique and table side drinks were the highlight. A friend did not like her cocktail, and was promptly brought a new drink at no charge. We will definitely come back next time we are in town for a night out!
This is a cool place. However, we thought we were getting two drinks that were prepared tableside, but only one was. I think, given the high prices, they should all be prepared table side.
The bartenders are very knowledgeable
Such an amazing experience. Took my mom for the first time and she had such a great time as well. A beautiful bar and the most friendly staff. Ended up coming to MC again on Thursday evening with a group and we did not have reservations but they were able to fit us in. And of course, the drinks were amazing. Sam is fantastic. Thank you to all the staff for always providing amazing service and drinks. Will be coming back again as soon as I can!
This was my first time stopping by. It was a class act, all the way around, that you provided. I have already spread the good news about you! Will definitely return.
First time in Austin and we found this wonderful joint!!
Everything feels well thought out from the space to the cocktails. A great experience. Have not had cocktails so well balanced in a long time.
Intriguing entry way. Our table was not cleared at our reservation time, ready about 10 minutes late. Once seated, they closed the curtain and immediately the temperature climbed to an uncomfortable degree. We had fun reading the menu book, the drinks were certainly unusual.
The ambiance was great. The mixologist was knowledgeable. The drinks were inventive and delicious. It was a great evening.
Fantastic service and impeccable drinks.
The staff was very kind, knowledgeable, and attentive. I had trouble with parking and needed to leave 15 minutes into the reservation to move my car and they found a way to extend my reservation so I was able to be there for the full hour despite parking issues. They also helped me find the perfect drink on the menu. I will be going again!
Sam was amazing!
Great service and atmosphere. Closest thing to a cool European bar that I've seen in Austin thus far. Wish they had small snacks but cocktails only. They were great and unique cocktails though! I recommend! Enjoy
