OPA! Coffee And Wine Bar on South Lamar BLVD, Austin, Texas.
Over the past couple of months, I have found myself coming to this place (Opa! On South Lamar) at least once every other week. And to be honest, I like it. It is a really chill place where one can just hang out and talk. The environment is great, and every now and then they will have live local music play. And when no one is playing live music, OPA! Tends to have pretty good music playing in the background.
I know they offer food, but I have only ever bought drinks here. Now, since we’re talking about drinks, let me tell you a short story about something that happened to me, in the hopes that you don’t make the same mistake. Inside OPA!, there are two fridges where you grab your drinks from. Well, one of those fridges only has sodas and other non-alcoholic drinks. I accidentally grabbed two club-sodas thinking they were fancy fruity craft beers. Lime and blueberry! After my friends pointed that out to me, I decided to back inside to buy vodka so I could mix them.
Outside of that, everything about that place is great. If you just want a nice serene place to hang out or take a date to, then I would suggest coming here. My favorite hangout spot is the swing. I do wish there were more, though. Feel free to read other Google Reviews HERE.
Next time I go back, I will look at their menu and take some photos of it. But as I said before, I come here for the atmosphere. It really is a great place to hang out with friends over some drinks.
