Austin Happy Hour Spot #1 - La Condesa

If I'm going to go out for drinks, I prefer it to be for happy hour.  Cocktails just taste better before the sun goes down...and when they're cheap.  I decided to highlight some of my favorite spots around town to partake in this joyous American tradition.  An excuse to drink!  First up: La Condesa on 2nd Street.

La Condesa's happy hour runs from 5-7pm, and all of their delicious drinks (and food from the bar menu) are half price.  Pictured here is the Passionfruit & Mango Spiced Margarita, which is super tasty; but you really can't go wrong with ANY of the classic or signature cocktails.  My favorite is the Caipirinha.  The boyfriend's favorite is the El C├║bico, that contains grilled pineapple juice and tobacco infused tequila (which sounds utterly disgusting, but is actually pretty good).   If you're hungry, I highly recommend the Acelgas taco: spinach, giant white beans, and toasted garlic, topped with pico + salsa verde.  It's the best!  
There are only 4 tables on the small bar patio, so if you want to sit outside, get there early.  Otherwise, soak up the AC while chatting with the friendly bartenders and gazing at the cool chandelier.
