CLIVE BAR, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS
609 Davis St.
A non-dive that's also completely unpretentious, Clive has a great bar from top to bottom, outdoor seating (weather's nice in Hill Country, pardner), and it sits across the street from a row of food carts that deliver straight to your bar stool. It's an older crowd, so leave the frat brothers at home and don't puke on the white leather furniture. [Website: clivebaraustin.com; Twitter: @CliveBarATX]
