Austin’s bar and restaurant scene doesn’t just offer spectacular food and drinks; it also makes up some of the most instagrammable moments in town. Whether you’re posing under a cute sign or in awe of the presentation of your beverages and dishes, you’ll be dying to post your latest culinary adventure. These are the cutest bars and restaurants in Austin that are totally worthy of an Instagram feature. 

Taquero Mucho

508 West Ave, Austin, TX 78701

Pink, pink, PINK! Taquero Mucho is one of the most Instagram-worthy restaurants in Austin, with its super cute pink decor, LED signs, and most famously — pink tortillas. The Mexican restaurant is known for its great cocktails, delicious food, and fantastic brunch vibes (all while remaining picture-perfect).


506 West Ave, Austin, TX 78701

No instagram would be complete without a picture under Irene’s iconic LED sign. While waiting for food and drinks it’s the place to pose for pictures of yourself and the squad. Once you get all your pics, settle in to enjoy coffee or cocktails and classic southern fare on their spacious patio.


304 E Cesar Chavez St Unit 700, Austin, TX 78701

Seven stories up on a rooftop terrace is Zanzibar — a lush, tropical paradise complete with inventive tiki cocktails and island-inspired small plates. Covered in plants, the terrace is one of the prettiest in Austin, with the capability of whisking you off on vacation without having to leave the Austin skyline behind.

Honey Moon Spirit Lounge

624 W 34th St, Austin, TX 78705

Honey Moon is a relatively new speakeasy-style bar and restaurant. They have a wonderful selection of craft cocktails highlighting a variety of different spirits, and an extensive wine list! Beyond great drinks, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is phenomenal.


615 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

Before the dining and drinking days, Eberly was once a print shop. Today, much of that original architecture has been preserved, making the restaurant one of the most visually-pleasing in town. Everything, from the dishes and drinks, to the overall design, make this space the perfect canvas for an Instagram worthy bars photo. 

Joann’s Fine Foods

1224 S Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78704

Located within the Austin Motel, Joann’s is a bar and restaurant that will take you right back to the ’70s, with a modern twist. The patio has an incredible multi-colored stained glass roof, perfect for getting those rainbow-effect photos, not to mention you can even lounge poolside

Higher Ground

720 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701

Higher Ground is a new bar in Downtown Austin, with a kind of church theme, but make it drama. You’ll be dying to have a photo shoot! They have gorgeous stained glass windows, candelabras, an organ jukebox, a pipe organ DJ booth, and the cocktails themselves are beautifully presented.
