On Portlandia, actor Kyle MacLachlan donned a cowboy hat and sang the praises of cool Austin neighborhoods in a recent clip. What’s hip? Record stores, coffee shops, and bars with intriguing bartenders. Barton Springs Saloon, Gibson Bar, the ABGB, and G&S Lounge were all used as examples. What isn’t hip? Babies and cats.

Watch the video online, and look out for the sketch on Thursday’s episode on IFC.
