Walking distance to amazing tacos, fresh lime margaritas and one of the best bowls of queso and fresh chips you can get! La Holly is a mezcal, tequila, and sotol bar located far enough down East 6th that you won’t come across to many crowds (which we love) While the back patio is where you should spend most of your time here, there’s also a long bar inside where you can do a proper mezcal tasting if that’s your sort of thing. There are taco trucks out back too, which means you can basically spend an entire afternoon or night here without having to leave.

Walking distance to a spot when you want to drink beer all day surrounded by dogs, head to Lazarus Brewing. They have a solid beer selection, plenty of bar seating, and a shady patio ideal for hanging with friends and slowly recruiting more people (and dogs) to join you. When everyone has had a few drinks and inevitably gets hungry, Lazarus serves tacos and sandwiches too.

For everyone who complains that Rainey Street just isn’t what it used to be, Lustre Pearl East is the solution. It’s the original bungalow that was uprooted from Rainey when they needed to make way for condos, but now with more outdoor space and way fewer UT students. Even though it’s further east than most places on this list, it’s worth the extra five minute bike or Uber ride. It’s never too crowded, but there are always enough people to make it feel like a house party you’d actually want to be at.

The Liberty is one of the oldest bars on East 6th and while the warehouses that once surrounded it have been replaced by condos, it’s still one of the best places to drink on the street. Inside you can play pool or post up around the bar, or you can head to the backyard and grab a spot at one of the many picnic tables. Location of the ORIGINAL East Side King Thai street food trailer - get the LIFECHANGING fried chicken and the Brussels , liberty rice and beets and you’ll be set.

Hidden under a bunch of trees in front of some train tracks on a side street, you’d probably never know Yellow Jacket Social Club was here. This divey spot isn’t just a great place for a low-key hang in the shade, though, they also serve a surprisingly great brunch. Start the day off with a frozen mimosa and the shrimp and grits and see where the afternoon takes you.

Great for food and drinks. They supply most the bread to the top local restaurant in town and that’s saying something. The coffee is fantastic and their food is top notch. And they have a great outdoor area. (Usually a Wait)
