If having a good time with good friends downtown is what you're after, just walk right past light bar. You can get drinks and music anywhere downtown and the service here is a disaster.

Some friends and I went in last weekend as I had

This place is usually pretty dead. If not it's filled with kids since it's 18+. Not my kind of place.

Ridiculous! Hold on to you credit/debit cards. Even when you do open a tab [leave your credit/debit card with the bar] - each time you buy a drink using your credit/debit card, The Light Bar places a $50 hold on your account that supposedly drops off in 5 business days. That means that the 2 times we bought drinks at $7.50 and $15.00 translates into a $100 hold on my funds in my account. CRAZY [and they do not tell you this before you make a purchase].

Pros: 2 Levels of Music and Waterfall

Cons: They place a $50 hold on each transaction you make with card

I would not recommend this bar at all. They overcharge for every drink possible. Seriously, four dollars for a Bud Light or eight dollars per wine glass? No way. On top of that, they have shoddy tables. I bumped a table on accident, which spilled my brother's wine terribly, and they charged me for another wine altogether without asking me. Go elsewhere if you want some "high class" drinks. These guys do not emphasize; they just want the most dough from the customer as possible.

This bar is not what it used to be. I would be surprised if it is around for much longer. It is over priced. The only thing they have going for them is the cool furniture and setting.

Pros: roof top patio, views, hot guys

Cons: hard to find

Whenever I come to Ausitn for business I make sure to stop by Light Bar for an evening of fun. Downstairs is ultra modern with great music. The decor is amazing and it feels like you're in New York or LA. Upstairs has an unbelievable view, with a laid back atmoshere. You can even catch a great live band. What more can you ask for!
