    Cheap beers, great DJ for dancing, feels kinda like hanging out at your friends backyard party. I dig. Bathroom line gets cray cray quite often, but I think that’s the only drawback.

    Go on Fuck Me Friday.

    On a Friday night, the DJ here holds it down with the best old school Hip Hop I’ve heard in ages. I’m talkin’ about Wreckx n Effect, “Rump Shaker” old. I was fist-pumpin’, I was pop and lockin’, I was moving like I hadn’t in forevs (except no droppin’ it like it’s hot, girlfriend’s gotta be mindful of the knee).

    If this place weren’t crawling with the most ridiculous of hipsters I’d make this a regular Friday night spot. (Like I go out enough on Fridays to be a regular anywhere – ha!) Big patio full of smokers, only one girl’s restroom which gets pretty gross by the end of the night., but two bars to serve up your strong drinks all night.

    Go for the music, go to people watch, go to drop it like it’s as hot as your bad old knees will let you…guaranteed to be a fun Friday.

    I wandered here the other day after a long job interview. I had about forty minutes to kill before getting a bang trim at method. across the street. I spotted a patio out back, but what made me walk in was the chalkboard sign on the fence that said, “Eat a bag of dicks and then come in for a drink. We wouldn’t want you to drink on an empty stomach.” That’s funny. I like funny stuff and funny people, and I like booze, so the Eastern seemed like a decent place.

    It was beautifully sunny, so after the friendly bartendress gave me my vodka soda ($2 for well vodka. What?), I went out and sat at a picnic table on the patio. It’s nice and spacious out there. Well, “nice” is subjective. It’s kind of a shit hole, but I LOVE shit holes. It’s a cool shit hole, if you will. The bartender was playing good tunes and my drink was cold and that was all that mattered to me.

    Place was empty, so it was hard to get a feel for what it would be like to hang out there at night, but I can tell you that I do look forward to going back. I’ll stop somewhere for a bag of dicks beforehand, for sure.

    Oh The Eastern. My favorite place to day drink by far, for many reasons

    1. The lovely bartender, Savannah (and the rest of the staff!)
    2. The wonderful people passing through
    3. A dog friendly patio (though I am dogless), so I can pet furry animals
    4. Awesome happy hour deals and low prices the rest of the time
    5. Proximity to Tamale House (for a drunken snack)

    Definitely check it out if you’re looking for somewhere to grab a drink on the patio and meet some nice people

    Stopped in during “Cinco de Drinko,” & the bar was nice & quiet Inside! The bar itself is very rustic. I am not sure what was there before it but I assume it was another dive bar. The Eastern is dark & cold inside, a perfect escape from the hot Texas sun. Restrooms were ok by dive-bar standards & their outdoor patio is HUGE! The day crew were very nice & helpful, & they have a good bottled-beer selection.
    Next time I’m on East-6th, I plan on stopping by again, but maybe in the evening when it’s lively.

    ALL. RIGHT.

    There’s been a lot of crying about the Boom Boom Room at Union Park being gone, but no one seemed in any hurry to rectify the utter LACK OF BOOTY DANCING IN AUSTIN. Not a soul.

    But you know what: I’m not afraid to sweat. Yeah, I said it. If you don’t like me dance-sweaty, you don’t deserve me other-sweaty. So I hit up the non-air-conditioned (and in fact, a fainting hazard) outside room at the Eastern, where:
    1. DJ ulovei (Miguel Angel) spins booty-drop music on Fridays, the likes of which will make your knees quiver and joint replacement doctors everywhere squeal with delight;
    2. HIP HOP vs REGGAE NIGHT happened last Saturday. I’m sorry, I’m saying it again and not yelling so you can fully appreciate the critical nature of my words: hip hop. VERSUS. reggae. See if you can keep a straight face from the ecstasy of Beyonce mixed with Beenie Man. Good luck with that.

    Upon reading this, did all of your worries melt away like the pounds of makeup, hairspray, and cupcakes did from my very person last weekend? I might as well sleep over on the disgusting, hipster-tainted, broke-ass couches at this place from Friday night through Sunday morning.

    Just came in for some no nonsense day drinking on the East Side. Cheap beer, great music, they had some
    College football going and an air conditioner working it’s ass off. Bartender was cool as fuck. Solid return on a low expectation investment.

    Friday Nights!!! This is one of the best spots to be on a Friday night in Austin!!! The DJ is amazing if you love to dance… If ur just trying to chill, there’s plenty of space on the patio. I usually do dirty 6th, but this is my new Friday spot. Great for under 30 crowd… Idk about the other days, sry.

    If you like dive bars, you will love this place. Literally no frills, but a laidback place with a cute patio. The DJ played a random mix of music – songs I hadn’t heard in years but knew every word to. Some movie was playing inside on a projector screen (with no sound), but I wasn’t inside long enough to notice which one. The couch cushions could use some TLC…I definitely wouldn’t have sat on them. All in all, a fun funky place where you don’t get bumped constantly and can hear your friends talk. I’m glad we left the White Horse to come here instead.
