Hotel San Jose Courtyard Bar, Austin, TX

18 of 32

A small pool, vintage reclining chairs, and tall plants make this intimate courtyard bar an easy, breezy space to while away a few hours in Austin’s South Congress neighborhood. If a drink makes you so inclined, grab a Polaroid camera or antique typewriter—available on loan from the hotel—and start recording some memories. Just be sure someone holds your spot because seats are hard to come by after 6 p.m.
