Trophy's: "Dive Bar on S. Congress" Austin Nightlife Tip by tee0206

Austin Nightlife: 131 reviews and 91 photos

If you're done browsing art, jewelry, etc. on First Thursday and you want to go grab a beer, but don't want to go to a crowded place such as Guera's, Trophy's might be your place. It's a great dive bar. Trust me, it's extremely divey. It's located just south of Magnolia Cafe on South Congress. It's unlike many other places in this district, considering it's not artsy, classy, or chic. However, it may just be the place you want to be after being around all those places that are artsy, classy, or chic. It's a dark, smokey bar that I believe may serve only beer. The jukebox's selection includes Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. Occasionally, you may catch a band performing.

Dress Code: Wear whatever you want. I doubt anyone cares here.
