Handlebar, a rooftop bar in Downtown Austin, is a popular hangout place that is known for its offbeat theme and an overall fun setting.

The drinks menu here is diverse with wide range of craft beer, whiskeys and cocktails to choose from. Riding the rocking horse or seesawing on the terrace with your friend after downing few drinks in here is fun and a must try. You can also challenge your friend to a game of jenga or simply enjoy the breathtaking view from the rooftop.
If Austin-area jazz lovers feel ignored, it is justified; the local music scene, multi-faceted as it may be, has always neglected their genre of choice. However, what the region lacks in quantity, the Elephant Room more than makes up for in quality. It has been deemed as one of the finest venues in the country by none other than Wynton Marsalis (and subsequently honored by a unanimous resolution of the Texas Senate for having earned the jazz legend's admiration). The appeal stems largely from the club's unceasing lineup of regional favorites, touring greats, and, once in a while, plain ol' jam sessions consisting of anyone who cares to take the stage.
