Roosevelt Room is Austin’s mixology mecca. But despite what you might think based on the fancy cocktails and private waiting area that welcomes you, there’s a surprisingly low-key Cheers-ish vibe once you’re inside. It’s a great option if you’re looking to sit and hang somewhere over drinks and some snacks downtown. The menu is organized by decades, and their bar staff are walking beverage encyclopedias - so you’ll inevitably end up happy.
