Step out into the sunshine and get ready to drink the day away with friends and family because these outdoor bars in Austin can’t be missed. Rain or shine, these outdoor bars provide the perfect atmosphere for anyone.

Draught House Pub & Brewery

Draught House Pub & Brewery is one of our top picks for an outdoor bar in Austin. With weekly specials ranging from $2 off all beers on Tuesday to free sausages with sauerkraut on Saturdays, Draught has been making something for everyone since 1995. The cool thing about Draught is that they have 74 beers on tap! Draught doesn’t offer much in the way of food, but they have rotating food trucks Tuesday through Saturday.


Nobody puts baby in a corner, but maybe she’d like this Corner! Corner’s outdoor patio comes with its own bar and is beautifully designed with a casual but trendy ambiance. They have a wide selection of tasty treats from their scones during brunch to jalapeno honey mustard grouper at dinner. This outdoor bar in Austin also has a happy hour Monday through Friday from 4-6 p.m.!

Bar Peached

If Instagram-worthy haunts are your thing, check out Bar Peached. With its eclectic design, fun lights, and awe-worthy food and custom cocktails, this outdoor bar in Austin has it all, and the “all” requires no filters. From shrimp flautas to confit duck foldies, the Bar Peached creates empty-plate club members.

The Butterfly Bar

The Butterfly Bar at the Vortex is not only a bar and hangout space for many, it’s also a butterfly sanctuary! The Butterfly Bar also hosts plenty of community events such as trivia, fitness classes, and local music showcases, making the Butterfly Bar a fun place for everyone to enjoy! From the Butterfly Nectar cocktail to the Lillet’s Cup (gin, rose syrup, cucumber, strawberry, etc.), this outdoor bar in Austin will have you falling head-over-heels for these handcrafted drinks.

Cosmic Coffee + Beer Garden

This quaint outdoor beer garden provides so much more than what’s on tap. Cosmic Coffee + Beer Garden also offers specialty coffees, craft cocktails, and food trucks. Pets are always welcome at Cosmic, but children are only welcome before 9 p.m. Another unique thing about this out door bar in Austin is that they offer some of their cocktails in sharable bottles instead of by the glass!

If sitting in the hot Austin heat isn’t for you, all of these outdoor bars offer quaint indoor seating, too!
