Your Guide to Apartments in Congress Ave District
Apartment living in Austin can be a blast, but it can also leave you with difficult choices to make. Do you want to hit up a sports bar? A outdoor lounge? A live music venue? Apartment-ites need not worry so much, however, because there is one location in Austin that gives you all three, and so much more. Whether you need a place to relax with friends and enjoy a drink, a place to play a game of pool or darts while knocking bad a few, or if you're looking for somewhere to dance the night away to some of Austin's local artists, The Speakeasy is here to cater to your every need.
The Speakeasy is made up of three different levels, each catering to a different kind of crowd. The first floor, called the Main Floor, is the place to listen to live Austin bands, with a large dance floor in front of the stage and plenty of tables to enjoy a drink while you enjoy the sounds of Austin's best. The place swims with hardwood floors and the lively ambiance of the 1920s. Just upstairs is the Mezzanine, where sports fans can enjoy the game, take in a quick game of pool or darts, and down a few suds. The top floor, known as Terrace59 is their main draw, and one of the most famous spots in Austin for enjoying a fantastic view of Austin's skyline. Just be careful of ghosts, who have been known to creep up and down the 59 steps of this famed Austin building.

They have a great selection of both local and specialty drinks, so if you're looking for a terrific brew to wet your whistle, The Speakeasy is ready for you.
