Beauty Bar has an endearing manufactured charm to it that has successfully cultivated a loyal following in the Pabst-drinking hipster crowd of music lovers in Austin. Just as in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, the decor is vintage beauty shop, complete with romantic lighting, antique barbershop chairs and hair drying stations.
But after eleven, there is rarely room to sit down, and folks head outdoors to the patio. People are on their feet dancing to some of the best electronica DJs in town or the touring indie band du jour celebrating their new-found fame.
If it gets too crowded, the space can escalate to sweaty, aggressive levels, making everyone a little less than beautiful by the end of the evening.
Happy Hour means half priced drinks from 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. on Thu - Fri.
