Daily 3-5: $5 select cocktails
Monday all night: $5 bubbles & 1/2 price oysters
Although not discounted, there’s plenty to munch on here
Outside: casual and comfortable people watching
Inside: cutesy, fun, and clever
In case you can’t tell by the name alone [or you’re opposed to judging books by their covers] Hillside Farmacy is cute. The atmosphere is perfectly polished and presents exactly as described [unlike some internet dates you may or may not have been on]. It’s like if farm-to-table met old-school-drug-store and had a baby [hence “Farmacy,” get it…?] The outside, in contrast, remains a quintessentially Austin patio space. The happy hour is relatively limited, and certainly prohibitive for us 9-5 folks [8-5, who am I kidding?] But…. all night on Mondays you’ll be delighted by $5 glasses [ahem, cups] of sparkling wine and ½ price oysters [market price, y’all –that could mean anything, so ask your server before you order if you wanna know]. It’s a lovely place to soak up some pre-date liquid courage before you meet the Tinder/OKC/Bumble/Match/Grinder partner of your dreams. And a perfect place to celebrate the one year anniversary thereafter, not to mention all those romantic brunches in between.
Drink well, drink cheap
