It's easy for an Austin Apartment-ite to find a fun thing to do downtown on a weekend night, but what do you do for the other nights of the week? With great drink specials just about every night of the week, a great selection of beers, and plenty of big events happening throughout the year, there are few better options for getting out of your Austin apartment on any night and having a few drinks at The Ginger Man.
Right downtown in close distance to many of Austin's Universities, The Ginger Man is a true college bar, usually filled with collegiates and professors, and there's always lively conversation to be had. It's not your usual ruff-and-tumble beer haul, but instead a great for intelligent discussion after a night of hard studying or a weekend after a long week of classes. It's warm and homey, with wood accents and comfortable seating, but for those wanting a breath of fresh air, there is also a patio in the back perfect for feeling the night air as you enjoy a great beer.
The Ginger Man provides a great selection of beer with more and more added each day from domestics to foreign favorites. Their beer selection even includes a special mixed beer, where they combine two of their top beers to make something brand new and interesting. The Ginger Man is a beer drinkers paradise. Not in the mood for a beer? This place also has a small but well-chosen selection of wine from around the world, ciders, and even coffee for those not quite up for a night of drinking.
The place also has fantastic drink specials all through the week, from discounts for folks working in the service industry on Sunday nights, to discount Texas beers on their Texas Tuesday, and Logo Pint night, where you can get a free pint glass with the logo of your beer of choice on it every Monday night. Wednesday usually features live music, while Thirsty Thursday takes over on Thursday with great deals on draft beer!
For those in Austin, there really is no place better for a fun night of drinking and chit-chat than The Ginger Man. It has a great authentic pub feel, and is one place that apartment dwellers in Austin should not pass up.
