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 have been trying to get to this place for 2 years and finally made it! This is an amazing place and we cannot wait to go back!
The menu was digital, but the price included a physical menu per person that wasn't included. Two of the first round of drinks were made at the table, but because one of our party was engrossed in her conversation, we didn't get to hear anything about the drinks (not your fault), but then none of the second round of drinks were made at the table. As host, I was hoping for more of that experience, but I understand that it must have seemed like the table wasn't into it. It was just bad timing. The drinks were spectacular. When there's a new menu, I'll host again.
Great staff and great drinks. Thanks y'all!
Drinks were delicious. The snack plates were mediocre. Good service. I would ha e preferred the music to match the atmosphere... like old school jazz or something of the times to feel more like I'm going back.
Excellent drink selection and service.
Our waiter, Matthew, was absolutely incredible. I had just lost my grandfather and I was there to have a drink in his honor. Matthew made the best whiskey cocktail I’ve ever had in my life. No exaggeration. Thank you guys for a great evening!
Every time is such a special treat. Staff and service is amazing. Every cocktail is perfectly balanced and unique. I wish I could have one of your drinks every single night!
I had a wonderful experience at Midnight Cowboy, the staff is fantastic! Not only was I able to add two guests to my reservation last minute, but they also allowed us to stay a little longer to continue celebrating a friend's birthday. Service was attentive without being too much, and the cocktails are so inventive. Nice presentation too! The atmosphere is very nice, and we enjoyed the included snacks. It's a little pricey, but worth it every once in a while for a unique experience on a special occasion.
Food was a little scarce, maybe would recommend a larger portion but it was still a great time. Drinks were amazing
Great overall night!
Truly one of the greatest cocktail/drinking experiences ever. Your bartenders were amazing. The drinks were some of the best cocktails I've ever had. I will be back here soon. Thank you and every one of your bartenders for a drinking experience that surpassed every other!
Went here on a date. Great spot to have a conversation. Staff was super welcoming and you can tell they enjoy what they do. Cocktails were unique and the service was on point.
Love the thought behind the menu and atmosphere. Overall great service and experience.
Unique venue and experience. I’m never disappointed.
Great date spot to take someone! Nice to come here once in a while for some well made drinks
This will be a frequent stop for us. First time stop for us and we loved it. The mood, well-crafted drinks that anyone would like, and service that places the priority on the patron all make this place a hidden gem. Make a reservation and stop here ASAP.
Everything from the service to the drinks and charcuterie were outstanding. We visited with friends and their daughter who had never been to Midnight Cowboy before. They absolutely loved it. We will surely return again.
5 STARS is not enough. 10 out of 10 Better than advertised and I will for sure be back.
Had a great evening and the staff was awesome, drinks were delicious and music was good. Must see for 6th St
Truly amazing. Thanks for all you are doing even in the middle of a pandemic!
We were not informed the drinks were per hour and thus only ordered 1-2 drinks per person. Great atmosphere but we feel like we did not get full value.
It’s a bit pricey but it was very nice. The drinks were very strong and the service was great. It was a great pre evening cocktail hour.
Impressive experience as planned. I will be back for more. Fantastic job team.
Great service and very friendly bar staff. Very interesting drinks but I wouldn't say the ones we had tasted all that excellent.
My daughter & I had a wonderful time. She’s hoping to return with a few friends.. A delicious cheese board & drinks. Loved the menu too. Service was excellent.
