About Milonga Room
Milonga Room is a cocktail & amaro focused bar tucked underneath Buenos Aires Café in the bustling and trendy east side of downtown Austin, TX. A step inside will transport you to another era with its vintage aesthetic in a romantic and intimate basement space. The bar focuses on Latin/South American, particularly Argentine, influenced cocktails & amaros from around the world - ask the staff about amaro flights that will take you on a journey of bitter delight. The menu also features a curated list of empanadas, tapas & desserts from the upstairs restaurant. Music from South America adds to the flavor and ambiance of our very intimate room - while not offered every night we often feature live music, burlesque & belly dancing shows, and complimentary tarot readings. Our entertainment schedule can be found on our website. Milonga Room’s entrance can be found on the backside of Buenos Aires Cafe on E 6th St. Guests will be asked for reservation confirmation before entry. Reservations are highly encouraged but guests can also inquire with the hostess at the restaurant above for openings or via text at 512-886-1920. While walk-ins are welcome seating is not always available.
Due to the intimacy of the space there are a few basic house rules we ask guests to follow to ensure everyone’s experience is pleasant which can be found within your booking details. We encourage guests to drink and behave both responsibly & thoughtfully of other parties surrounding them.
No outside food or beverages will be permitted in the building - this includes cakes. If you are hoping to include a cake for your celebration please inquire with us about custom made cakes by our upstairs pastry chef.

Great experience and a nice intimate atmosphere.
It was a very pleasant first time. I will plan on going back in the future.
Really enjoyed our time there. Great vibe and cocktails were excellent. Felt a tinge rushed out, but understand you have reservations for a reason and need to honor them. Great experience, would recommend and return again.
We celebrated my wife and I's 15 anniversary with some friends and family at Milona Room. We had a great time and was especially very happy with the atmosphere and vibe of this secret little bar in East Austin. Cheers
The cocktail menu is impressive, and the drinks are excellent. Tapas menu is limited, but good. I have to admit the bill was more than expected, and they automatically add 20% tip, which is a huge turn off.
Very east Austin. Okay but overpriced and overrated.
The hostess/manager was very friendly and polite, and extremely accommodating, and our server/bartender was helpful and friendly as well. Some speakeasies can feel pretentious, but the vibe at Milonga was the opposite. Love it.
We had a private party for our clients there and everyone loved it. They particularly enjoyed the private entrance and the exclusive atmosphere of having the room reserved.
We ended up arriving 30 minutes before our reservation time and they were able to accommodate us. The service was great and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Looking forward to going there again.
Cozy place and tasty drinks and empanadas.
Loved it and will be back!!!
My friends and I very much enjoyed our time at the Milonga Room. The night was rainy and the room was cozy. It was easy to book, the bartender was an excellent host, the food and drink were great, although I personally think the drinks are on the expensive side. The guitar player was good and even though I like live music and hear a lot of it, I preferred the room without the live music.
Love the Night Owl drink menu!!!
Funky place with a great vibe Cocktail were fantastic
Los cocktails eran ricos,las empanadas estaban bien,y la atencion muy buena
Lovely place! Very romantic. The drinks, service and tapas were great. This was my first speakeasy and a great experience.
Of the secret bars in austin that I tried, this wad by far my favorite. Very intimate but still provided an environment where strangers could talk to each other.
I loved the ambiance of the place!
The intimate atmosphere, seating for everyone and the food, oh god can we talk about the food? I wasn’t hungry and I had to keep eating. The entire staff was fantastic and attentive and always on hand. The drinks were tasty and we were never with out water or nibbles. Thanks so much for making NYE an easy and lovely experience. I hope that I can join you again next year for another Fantastic evening.
It took 32 minutes for us to receive our first round of beverages (party of 4) on a 60 minute reservation. Service was lackluster as were the beverages once we received them. disappointing experience. maybe good for tourists but we live locally and consider this an unacceptable experience.
Very easy to book and the staff was very flexible with my large party request. The drinks were very interesting and our group thoroughly enjoyed our time at Milonga!
Such a cool spot in Austin!
Amazing place to cozy up for a date night. A little bit on the pricier side, but worth every cent. Truly one of the few places where the food is on par with the specialty drinks. If you’re looking for a true speakeasy, this is it.
I had a wonderful time and I enjoyed how it all worked out. Just if possible a quicker response to the texts when making reservatios is all I'd say. Overall wonderful experience!
