Einstein said that when things on Earth are so bad that bees go extinct, human beings will also die off within five years. We’ve long believed that when Spider House closes, the soul of Austin is no more. It’s hard to explain this place other than it’s many things crammed into one colorful space - a coffee shop with alright food, a music venue, tattoo parlors, a stand up comedy venue, a small makeshift arcade, and a slew of popup vendors - but at night it’s a fantastic laid-back bar and beer garden with outstanding people-watching opportunities.
