It’s no secret that Austin offers an exciting and varied nightlife for visitors. Whether you’re chilling by a chiminea at Whisler’s on the east side or dancing your feet off at Barbarella’s downtown, Austin has many late-night spots to satisfy your cravings, so read on to find out where they’re at.
Quite possibly one of the best places to get late-night Cajun fare, Turf and Surf has everything from catfish to oysters to shrimp and crawfish. Popular choices are the blackened crawfish tacos with hushpuppies. If you decide that you’d rather keep going with the festivities, Turf and Surf is attached to the Lavaca Street Bar, which is open until 2 am Friday and Saturday.
What’s better than late-night donuts, kolaches and coffee? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Mrs. Johnson’s Bakery has become a staple of the North Loop area, and it’s easy to see why with creations like Bavarian cream-filled donuts, apple fritters and ham and cheese kolaches. Mrs. Johnson’s is open every day from 7:30 pm until 12:00 pm the next day.
