Midnight Cowboy

Midnight Cowboy is reminiscent of some of LA and New York’s best speakeasies like PDT or The Varnish, but what distinguishes this modern cocktail bar is unpretentious Southern hospitality. What once was an Austin bordello has been beautifully transformed into a sultry Victorian-era cocktail bar, complete with plush leather banquettes and impeccable antique detailing, plus tableside cocktail service. You need a reservation to get in—upon booking you get the door code that allows you to enter. 313 E. Sixth St.; 512-843-2715; midnightcowboymodeling.com—KS
