    Across the street from The Highbal is another popular bar called the Gibson which is even more affordable although the only activity there is drinking.

    Great local joint. South of downtown. If you are looking for a low key place in a great setting...this spot is for you. 4 star for sure.

    I didn't stay here too long, but it's generally a nice bar. It's a spacious bar with booths and tables for groups to congregate. So it's not the kind of bar where you'd really roam around to chat with people much if you're interested in that. Our waiter was pretty prompt with our orders.

Description

At the corner of Gibson and Lamar in the jumping college town of Austin, Texas is one of the last true lounge bars left.
