WATCH YOUR CREDIT CARD CHARGE 1/8/2008

Everything they say is true about this bar. I love this bar- or used to, until they charged me double on my credit card for my bar tab, causing my bank account to overdraft and incur multiple non-sufficient funds charges. I would have saved writing this review until I spoke with the manager and given him/her a chance to respond, but it seems the manager spends 1 mystery hour per week there and the employees who have answered my calls don't seem concerned about tracking him down for me. So yeah, enjoy Club de Ville, but you might want to pay with cash. more

Awesome Patient Bartenders and Friendly Staff 11/25/2007

Thank you for keeping my credit card safe... I left my credit card here a couple of nights ago after a few too many with my blind date. Thanks Club Deville for keeping it and better yet CALLING me to let me know it was there. You guys are way cool...now can you help me find my car? more

stiff drinks, by that little hottie joey 7/31/2007

friendly atmosphere, especially near the bar where i found myself drawn all evening to that master conversationalist, joey. outside seating was great but as i mentioned before the view behind the bar, though short in stature was SPECTACULAR! would highly recomend to all crowds looking for a relaxed lounge atmosphere. love you ffag -a- beefy!hookytau. Pros: joey Cons: joey no work everyday more

Club Deville sans Miss Emily 12/13/2006

I think Club Deville is great with strong drinks and the atmosphere to match. The best improvement myself and several friends have noted as of late: Miss Emily no longer frequents and/or has her karaoke there. Don't get me wrong, I like karaoke, and most people, but Miss Emily's attitude toward the patrons was horrible! Several occasions I witnessed people being degraded, pushed, threatened, by her and for no apparent reason. Maybe people also didn't want to pay to see her in particular? A suggestion would be karaoke or something like it with a fresher face. Pros: staff and stiff drinks Cons: parking more

i heart deville 9/26/2006

my fav bar, hands down. the staff rules (especially notable is the extra sassy object of everyone's desire, lana) the drinks are stiff, the music isn't a random mix of crappy jam bands and the place isn't overrun by frat boys run wild. people here are actually, dare i say it, friendly. what a concept. when you're tired of the same sixth street scene, this is the place to be. Pros: staff, service, music Cons: parking more

86 Karaoke 3/1/2006

Hey guys, sorry to break the news but we haven't had karoke here on a regular basis in over a year. It was popular for awhile, but no one seems to want to pay a cover to hear non-professional crooning and we needed to rent a PA and pay the DJ. We do host karaoke with a live band sporadically for special occasions so keep and eye out for posters advertising it, and other carefully-chosen live bands. Come play on the patio where the dark red lighting makes everyone look hot, the drinks aren't watered down and the playlist isn't controlled by people who will play "Hotel California" twice an hour. p.s. I promise the barstaff does not hate you. Pros: Away from 6th , pleasant atmosphere, stiff drinks Cons: bad when rainy more

Much love. 8/29/2005

I have been here in Austin for 5 years now and there is not a bar in Austin like this one. The staff is perfect. The girls that work the bar and wait are beautifull. The drinks are stiff and worth every penny. The music this great. If you hate a yuppie then don't worry they are gone by 10p. The crowd after 10p is the best crowd around. Pros: drinks, staff, music Cons: none, none, none more

Nice atmosphere, stiff drinks. 3/10/2005

The indoor area is extra dark, making it a great spot for a hidden rendezvous. The back patio is built into a sheer cliff and it is usually really crowded, but people are cool about sharing tables. more

Austin's Version of the Senfeld Soup Nazi 2/21/2005

While sitting below the limestone cliff, under the Spanish style dangling lights makes for the best outdoor bar scene in Austin, the bartenders and wait staff of this groovy joint are renown for their terribly rude treatment of customers. Be ready to feel like customer service is not required for their employees. No soup for you! Pros: outside setting, seating availability, groovy inside Cons: customer service, employee attitude, welcoming atmosphere more

Love DeVille 1/10/2003

Oh yeah. It's sexy. It's sexy like... watching someone with perfect lips tell a great joke. It's dark on the inside and bright outside. The seating is limited and consists mostly of metal outdoor chairs. Most of the seating is outside so bring a jacket if it's cold out. The bar staff is great and cute. The drinks are strong so take it easy and tip well. Pros: Lana's kissable smile, Potent drinks, Smart folk Cons: Limited seating more

The best staff in Austin 12/25/2002

DeVille has the best damn staff in Austin. Lana, Dan, Joe, John et al remember everything and always have my drink ready by the time I get to the bar. Also, the staff controls the music and they have the best taste in the city. The regulars are friendly and entertaining. If I had to take one Austin bar to a desert island with me, this would be the one. Pros: strong drinks, great staff, regulars Cons: crowded more

Wunder-Bar 12/5/2002

Deville is what I think of when I try to imagine the unholy offspring of David Lynch and Lawrence Welk, if their recombinant DNA were injected into the same spermshake, then allowed to ferment in the surroagte womb/playpen of Mimi VanDoren. With infernal red lighting, truly eclectic music, and Captain Hook drinks at Cabin Boy prices, it's unapologetically designed to inflame the senses. Ground zero for the best margaritas in Austin, it's where you want to be. And, like a crack-addicted lot lizard, you'll come crawlin' back for more. Pros: great staff, laid back, dark (I'm ugly) Cons: too close to 6th, they close, mens' room's well lit more

.....I LIKE..... 11/15/2002

Liked it. Tried it. Liked it. I want more. Bartenders were especially convivial and what an interesting scheme of things. Will be going often while I am in town. Pros: Bartenders, crowd, atmosphere Cons: dark more

BEST BARTENDER ON EARTH! 11/8/2002

Lana....she's absolutely fabulous. She cannot make a drink I wouldn't like! At least she hasn't yet. She's welcoming and warm and terribly cute. The other tenders at the bar are nice, too! The set up is interesting with the "rock wall" out back. I have been all over the globe and I really enjoy my time spent at DeVille. Males me glad to be in Austin. GO SEE LANA....SHE'S WONDERFUL! Pros: LANA, WORLD'S BEST!, The mixed crowd, lighting and lay out Cons: lil parking lot more

Cool but Classless 10/9/2002

I like Club de Ville and all, but with all the fashion shows and trendy things that go on there, it looks pretty pathetic having these "hip" events going on with a mounted swordfish hanging over the crowd...not very classy. They need to redecorate with a hip and trendy edge seen in other hip cities like LA and NYC. Austin has enough "average joe" bars and clubs, so it would not hurt a bit to redesign this one for the trendy crowd. more

De Ville is Real 8/12/2002

This place is very good. Great atmosphere in the courtyard and good drinks make it perfect for taking a date or meeting new people. Check this place out for sure. Props to the fisherman. Pros: courtyard, setup, drinks Cons: not well known more

Perfect place for music 7/16/2002

Though they don't utilize it enough, this is the perfect place for live music. Outside with the limestone backdrop, I saw some of the best shows including the Supersuckers and Spoon. But usually, the patio is just used for mingling less the live music. This is not a bad thing, though, because it truly is one of the best places in Austin to have a drink outside at night. Pros: great stage Cons: too cool more

fun patio 7/10/2002

One word: Karaoke. Live it, love it, sing it. I like the huge limestone wall that encloses the large patio. Inside can get mighty congested and smoky and the bartenders are very busy. But they are quick too and the drinks are always good. I also like this location because if the crowd is lame, you can keep walking along Red River until you find something to your taste. Pros: location, patio, crowd Cons: packed more

great outdoor patio 6/26/2002

Hung out here last Friday night with some friends, and thought it was a great spot. The patio's roomy--though tables fill quickly--and service was great. It seems there was always a waitress there waiting to take your order. Inside's very dark, so if you'd rather not see or be seen, that's the place to go. All in all, a groovy spot for late-night Austin people-watching. Pros: large patio, good service, fun crowd more

Editorial

  • In Short
    An even mix of Austin's pretty people and regular folks makes up the crowd. Set below a limestone cliff, De Ville's large courtyard area is furnished with tables and chairs from Grandma's backyard. The bar fills up quickly Thursday through Sunday evenings, with quite a bit of swank but very little pretense. During daylight hours, drinks are purchased at the bar. In the evening, servers with the best memories in Austin work the patio area.
