Bar Hopping with Lightning || The Volstead Lounge, AustinTX

Taxidermy and metallic gold wallpaper? I felt my heart skip a beat.

The Volstead Lounge in ATX is a moody dive with an excellent happy hour Рand the neighboring Hotel Vegas has the tunes.
Cheap drinks in this old brothel get a thumbs up from me.

The pluses: Great happy hour, a burger food-truck outside, aardvark head on the wall.
The minuses: Tiny ladies room, and the drunk girl who tried to kick down the wall on the outside patio. (But is that really a minus? It really chalks up to great people watching!)
