This is a very interesting place with the main bar area looking like a tiny castle. There is also a large amount of outdoor seating both covered and uncovered. The specialty cocktails are wonderful but pricy. Overall the service is pretty good.

Next door to Suerte (restaurant), Whisler's is a very cool bar. Inside is warm and funky. There is a large outside area covered by a tent and upstairs (through a separate entrance) is a Mezcal bar. Great place for drinks!

Excellent bartenders-talented at hand-crafted cocktails. The mezcaleria above the bar is great. Live music a nice addition.

This bar is clean with awesome vibes, great staff and AMAZING crafted drinks. The patio has fans and misters to keep those hot summer evenings at bay. Highly recommend!

I would not change a thing at Whisler’s - the ambience is resplendent in its moodiness, the service stellar and selection top notch. Somehow their unique environment elevates the craft of the cocktails served. The happy hour specials are made with as much care as...More

Nice patio out front with murals on the larger wall. We had cocktails outside which was very pleasant. East Austin walk was also interesting.

We went there for drinks to catch up with my daughter's friend from Costa Rica. His suggestion. It was kind of stuffy but cool looking inside, with shabby chic decor and antiques. We opted to get some air outside. The drinks were fine, nothing special....More
