My first experience was with some friends on a chill night. We hung out on the outdoor patio where we could overlook a busy 5th Street and had some great conversation. My first impression that it was a chill night type of bar where you could relax and talk with friends. I have since gone back a few times with groups of friends and always have excellent service and enjoy the crowd...they usually have a DJ and they throw parties occasionally. I like Apple Bar because it's not your ordinary, always-the-same-crowd type of place.

I really enjoyed the Apple Bar in the past along with my big group of friends. But, after I was overcharged a week ago by a substantial amount of money posted to my credit/debit card, I was upset to find out the management was doing little to help the situation. Countless voice-mails, a stop by the bar a few nights and an email...still nothing...was told it was a "glitch". To make matters worse, most people I know that night who used their cards were overcharged and are still having problems getting it resolved with the bar.

NEVER USE YOUR CREDIT CARD HERE....YOU MAY BE OVERCHARGED! PLUS, A WEEK LATER, THE MANAGEMENT WASN'T EVEN ATTEMPTING TO CONTACT ALL THOSE THEY OVERCHARGED. So, if you go here, make sure to keep your receipts and check your statements. I kept mine and will be disputing the charge with my bank.

Overall, it's left a really sour "apple" taste in my mouth. Just downright bad and illegal business!

If you like martinis and you like apples, this the place to go.
They have the best Appletinis. The bar is small, but does have two levels. Enjoy the sliced apple in the martinis.

I was in town for a friends birthday, and we decided to go downtown. After going to a couple other bars we stumbled into the apple bar. This place had a very nice vibe with a guitarist playing some well know tunes that we all ended up singing along to. The martini's were excellent and the staff was attractive, friendly, and sociable.

Pros: Live music, Drinks, Staff

came here for the first time, used a credit card to buy a round of drinks, went to pay the tab, was told our credit card was given to someone else. Talk about a bad experience. do they not check names? Anyway, probably going to keep us from going back, which is a shame.

Pros: cool place to hang

Cons: pay cash, credit card at bar was given away.

The Dirty Martini started out with a tiny amount of olive juice and became a martini glass of olive juice with a splash of alcohol after the bartender tried to fix it. The Cosmopolitan could only be called that because of its color and the Gin & Tonic was completely flat. I'll say that their drinks are definitely missing something ... better bartenders (they didn't even look old enough to be serving drinks) and an inventory of better alcohol brands!

I attended Apple Bar for the first time last night (april 2006). The vibe was ncie when I walked in and I even enjoyed the drinks. They were made well... until I came into contact with the worst bar tender in Austin. I was getting shots for 3 friends and when he gave them to me he was very rude and proceeded to tell me I was F-ing stupid for not knowing something about a drink. He was very slow at getting drinks out due to the constant making out with a girl at the bar. Service was awful. I will NEVER return.

Attractive & attentive bartenders - Fabulous drinks - Good atmosphere with adequate seating - mostly techno played by DJ - Try the Caramel Apple Martini

Pros: Friendly staff, Fantastic drinks, Good crowd

The atmosphere may be the best. I took a date there last Friday and we could actually talk (not yell) and listen to some good music. The mojito is excellent and the staff is friendly. There was a totally hot bartendress...unfortunately my date could not stop staring at the door guy.

The title says it all. I really like the drinks at Apple Bar, but the last time I went, I was astounded by the bartender's cocky and ignorant attitude. I can understand being in a rush, but on that day, there were less than 10 people in the whole bar and he still seemed to have problems getting people drinks. There was another guy working who picked up his slack, but I would still prefer not to return to a place with such rude service.

Pros: Interesting drinks, Good location

Cons: Rude people

.

Good-looking crowd, good ratio, good drinks, but poor music. I can't believe they need to spin those bland tunes. People would be into it more if they played music people knew and liked. Somethin to bob your head to.

I was very excited about trying the apple bar when my group selected it for our weekly happy hour, but when I got there at 10, the bouncer had a long line of my friends waiting OUTSIDE, even though the bar was practically empty! who were they trying to impress?!?! (there isn't a lot of foot traffic over there) I wasn't the only one upset by the rude bouncer who made us wait in the cold; many of us left and had a lot more fun at red fez, and I suggest you do the same!

HOW TO DESCRIBE THIS BAR BEST IS SOUR, APPLES THAT IS. THE CROWD IS PLAIN AND THE STAFF CAN'T MAKE A GOOD DRINK. I SAW A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING AND LEAVING AFTER ONE DRINK. IT WAS FAR TO DEAD TO BE A TRENDY SPOT. IT MAY HAVE BEEN AN OFF SATURDAY NIGHT. THE DOOR GUY LEFT THE BAD TASTE IN MY MOUTH. HOW DO YOU GIVE PREFERENCE TO OTHERS WHEN THE BAR IS NOT EVEN BUSY? A PLACE WORTH WAITING IN LINE, IT IS NOT.

The apple martini is delicious, the metropolitan is a nice change, but what stands out here is the crowd. Trendy and friendly, I felt right at home and will definitely return for more.

The best way to describe the vibe I got here? It was like going to a party at someone's place, only to find the party is weak, the music sucks, and all the people are annoying trendoids. The group I was with was ready to go after one quick beer. Hate to soung negative, but this is one of the worst bar experiences I have had in years.

Overpriced bar where the staff can't even make their own drink specials. Bartender fessed up to forgetting an ingredient in one of our drinks and not even having some of the ingredients for the other. However, she gladly took $7.50 off my hands for each drink. All in all, don't waste your time here when there are so many other choices nearby.

I wouldn't say that this was the coolest thing Austin has seen, we all have our own definitions, don't we? But it was a nice start to our evening out. The drink I ordered was good, and was served the way I had it in SF. The crowd was varied, but friendly. The DJ knew what to play in that space. It did seem a little dark, and I would have chosen other artwork for that concept, but overall, I see this place getting better and better.

Ok, it's a bad sign when the bartenders aren't capable of making their signature drinks right--the Mojito was a totally botched attempt and there were ice cubes in my Apple Martini. The crowd was a little off kilter and the sound system was horrible. Granted, this place has only been open a week, so they still need to settle into the groove, but until then I'll stay with other tried-and-true choices down the street.

Pros: Two Bars, Not too crowded

Cons: Untrained Staff, Sound System

In Short
Relax downstairs or climb past the vibrant local artwork by the staircase to comfortable sofas surrounding a large, red square table. Mostly couples and groups in their early 20s to mid-30s, fill the dark, brick-accented…
