We’re so lucky to live in Austin. Although sometimes the heat can be unbearable, for the most part, it’s usually just the right amount of sunshine we want to be under. What better place to do exactly that than somewhere with some shade too. Here are 5 patio bars on West 6th street that you should hit up on your next bar hop.
Some of them are also restaurant patios, so why not grab some dinner while you’re at it!
Bar Peached has one of the more unique patios, located under street level but still with a great view around. Before you read on, they usually book out in advance, so it would be smart to make a reservation right now.
Bar Peaches’ vibes are always fun, especially because they have one of the best happy hours in town. You have to try their spicy margarita! It’s got just the right amount of kick.
With a cute, blue set up outside and free parking (!), this should be on your W. 6th itinerary. Good luck finding free parking (or any parking) anywhere else.
It’s never dull at Bufords, and it’s also never quiet. So if that’s the vibes you’re going for, then Bufords is the spot for you!
The beer garden has one of the bigger patios on W. 6th, with easy access to go inside and outside, depending on where the most hyped crowd is. You can get a great view of downtown from it as well.
Then, take your day to the next level when they host bands and watch parties on their massive TV screens. It’s tons of fun being in their crowds.
Little Woodrow’s is a well-known Austin establishment. You have most likely already been there so you know why.
Their dog-friendly patio is super chill to hit up for post-work drink, but it can get packed into the night so go accordingly. They have over 100 beers to choose from and bar snacks to grub on. They’re also known to host some epic parties, especially on UT game nights!

For a quick drink to refresh in an outdoor setting, check out WTF’s massive patio. It’s so big, it’s the best social distancing spot to be. And it’s a bar!
Their patio is basically the whole place, and they often host comedy nights and live music too! It can actually be tons of fun with the right group of friends. Just be sure to dress up a bit as they have a dressier vibe in the evenings.
The most classiest of this bunch, The Grove’s patio is perfect for special occasions!
Steps lead to their elevated space, where you can enjoy some delicious food and cocktails. We especially enjoy their froze on summer days. And they also have pretty great happy hour and brunch menus, where you can order a mimosa flight!
