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.
The drinks are so unique and service in the back rooms is superb! Definitely worth a stroll through Dirty 6th to get to this gem.
Our expert server/bartender was excellent. Knowledgeable informative and a pleasure. We had a great time. Thank you!
The drink I ordered tasted like tequila to me (it should have been vodka and gin) and our server tasted it and said it definitely was not right and made me a new drink free of charge. I was nervous mentioning it because I thought I was just being picky, but he was so kind and my second drink was delicious. Would 100% come back and recommend!
Great service and drinks
This place is an absolute must if you travel to Austin! Love that the reservations are longer so you never feel rushed or crowded in the bar. Cocktails are absolutely amazing and the table service is so cool!
Just can't say enough about our visit here! Our second time, and it was just as amazing as the first! Thank you! 5 stars just isn't enough!
We had a great time! The drinks and atmosphere were amazing.
Amazing staff, coolest place!!!
I thought the prices were a bit high for the experience. Too dimly lit.
Interesting, delicious cocktails served by knowledgeable mixologists.
This place is a gem. Thanks for the great hospitality and bangin cocktails.
It’s always a great time at Midnight Cowboy!
Thoroughly enjoyable time, bartender was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, as were all the staff, really cool setting and environment, interesting and tasty cocktails and excellent presentations. Would absolutely recommend.
There was a table next to us that was using the flash on their phones to read the menu. It was really distracting for us. Other than that, we had a good experience here.
What a wonderful date night!
great drinks in a great atmosphere served by great people!
Midnight Cowboy is a hidden gem of 6th Street. Secluded from the craziness outside, the cozy speakeasy style bar serves amazing and interesting cocktails. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
Great place! Service and cocktails were amazing. A place full of surprises in a fun discrete atmosphere.
My wife and I had a great time! Perhaps some sort of snack on the table would be nice.
Thank you for providing a non-shouty environment for patrons who are serious about their cocktails. This is a refreshing change from most of the bars downtown.
This was one cool place! Enjoyed the craft cocktails and the intimate space for great conversation!
We had a great time at Midnight Cowboy. The whole experience is just cool. The cocktails and service were both amazing.
I love Midnight Cowboy and will keep coming back!
Quite a lovely experience. Our bartender was amazing, and put on a show for each fantastic cocktail we received.
Fun and unique menu. Some drinks are made right in front of you via the bar cart, and others are made at the bar and then just brought to you. We had a group of 5 and were automatically placed in a “private room.” It was a very cool experience and would recommend going in a group of 5+.
