Bar Congress

Downtown
About
Cuisine: New American

Ambiance: Upscale, Classy

Why we love it: Bar Congress is one of Austin's chicest spots for sophisticated artisan cocktails, premium wine and spirits, along with small plates and snacks.

Go for: Drinks, Small Plates

Standouts: Block and Board, Black Truffle Pommes Grilled Coconut Shrimp

Know before you go: They have a state-of-the-art 16-bottle Enomatic preservation system, which gives them the ability to offer a rotating array of "shift shots" of wines, ports and spirits by the glass.
