Named after the touches of Copper decorating the interior of the bar, CU-29 is the latest craft cocktail bar to hit the downtown Austin scene. Located near Brazos Place Condos and across the street from the Omni, this little gem is a great place to order a fancy cocktail after a long day at work. Prices run from about $10 (and up) per drink AND people who live or work downtown ALWAYS get 20% off!
I went the other day with a group of friends, and we all got really fun, fancy cocktails – here are a couple of pics:
The atmosphere in the bar is dark and airy – almost subterranean in feel, and the bar staff is STYLED out in clothes from places like the nearby Dandy’s.
So, I have a theory about this little area of downtown, and the addition of CU-29 supports it. Seems like many of the new retail shops and bars from 5th-8th street on Brazos all have a little bit of that fancy hipster style. I mean, you’ve got Handlebar, Dandy’s, Good Life Barber Shop, Firehouse Hostel Lounge, and for those SUPER fancy hipsters, the Driskill. What more could a discerning hipster man want on an evening out?
