Solo drinking is an awesome way to enjoy some of Austin’s best bars and restaurants, whether you want to hide out alone, looking to make new friends, need a break from your partner, or are single. Let’s face it, it’s easier to walk in and grab a seat at the bar these days than to snag a reservation. No matter if you like to be along with your thoughts, people-watch, read a book (or write one), or just scroll through your phone, there are plenty of perfect places to grab a cocktail, beer, or wine. You can go fancy with a glass of wine and a burger at June’s, throw back some Jell-O shots with other bar patrons over chili dogs at the Silver Medal, or indulge in oysters at the boisterous bar at Eddie V’s, the world’s, well, your oyster!
