Don't Need a Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows
The "Hole in the Wall" was founded in 1974 and sits right in the middle of "The Drag" right across from the 40 acres. How many hundreds of Thousands of UT students have had their first beer at this place may never be known.

When Austin City Limits was being filmed right across the street and way before SXSW and the ACL festivals were all the rage this little "fun-sized" joint was bringing in everybody from Doug Sahm and Townes Van Zandt and Willie and Stevie Ray Vaughn. In more modern times the likes of The Gourds, Bob Schneider, Black Joe Lewis & Gary Clark Jr. all worked out the kinks before going on to wider acclaim.

Austin is constantly changing, but if you want to know which way the wind is blowing just stop by the Hole in the Wall.
