The Peacock is the physical embodiment of all that is wrong with Austin hipster culture. I came here for a friends' 21st birthday (why you would choose this place for a night of fun is beyond me), and was sorely disappointed. First of all, the place is incredibly tiny, with not nearly enough seating. Everyone in the bar looked like they would rather be somwhere else: scenesters there to be seen and see others. The problem with these places is they are staffed by hipsters who have no respect for the bartending profession and thus are severely lacking in service and knowledge: There were about 20 people in the bar when I arrived, two girls ahead of me, and it still took me close to 20 minutes to get a beer. Horrible, horrible service. The music is also way too loud, eliminating any charm the small, intimate setting could hope to have. Bottom line, go someplace else.
Pros: Intimate setting, nicely designed interior
Cons: horrible service, too loud music, bad crowd
