Welcome to Austin’s best dive bar, the one that proves that ‘dive’ can still be classy. Violet Crown is a clean and welcoming bar that is dark enough to hide in a booth with your friends if you want, or be in the center of it all at the bar or on the spacious back patio. And it’s well-stocked with libations; you can get a beautiful, full-bodied pint of beer, or try something you’ve never even heard of from the cooler of crafty bottled beers. Well drinks are always cheap, and the bartender will not hesitate to make you anything else that you might desire.

If you go to Violet Crown Social club more than once you will get to know someone, whether it be one of the nicest bartenders in Austin that work there, or one of the bar’s regulars. There are also many ways to socialize, like with Wednesday night Trivia Nights, weekday happy hours from 5-7, and dog watching on the patio. The best thing is about this dive is that you will never walk away feeling regretful about spending your hard-earned money there because it’s always at a great value.

If you’re hungry the adjacent pizza trailer serves up some of the most savory pizza in the city, and you can enjoy it inside or out. A jewel of Austin, the Violet Crown Social Club has everything that you need on any given evening.
