Established in 1995, Star Bar is the original west 6th street bar. After 20 years, we're proud to say, we still are a neighborhood bar that has retained a lot of it's original clientele. We have two great patios. Our front patio is great for people watching and our back patio is a hidden gem, that is the perfect place to watch the game. The back patio is equipped with 8 televisions. 5 of which are 70 inches.
We also are home of the best Fried Chicken trailer in Texas - Tumble 22. We have 17 rotating taps dedicated to dispensing the best beer available in Texas.
As a staff, we love what we do. Many of us have worked at Star Bar for many years. We love football, hockey and sports in general. And we're a craft beer bar that's not scared to show the game. We may surprise you how unlike West 6th street we really are.

Hey Y’all , I’m Blake. I’ve been in Austin off and on for 10 years honing my craft as a professional drink slinger. I love this city and couldn’t picture living anywhere else in the world, From the live music to the amazing outdoor activities this town has it all. I love pouring new and interesting craft beers drinking whisky and during the summer I can be found at the lake wakeboarding or out for a run with my pup. They say if you work a job you love you never have to work a day in your life. I have found that here and look forward to meeting every single one of you. Come on by, say hi let me pour you a pint and let's chat about everything under the Texas sun.
Originally from St. Louis. Go Birds, Go Blues!! Here are some of my interest in life: Any sort of outdoors activities, competing in endurance races, traveling with my girlfriend, An avid non-fiction reader, cooking, and drawing. An ideal day would be some physical challenge in the morning and at night a glass of whiskey/craft beer with some live music. Preferably something with a fiddle. My mantra everyday is: Be healthy, Be kind.
The interactions and creativity that comes with the day to day life of working in a restaurant/bar is what is most enjoyable to me about this industry.
