The Iron Bear is a place to relax, have a cold beer and have fun with new and old friends. And, if you want to take your shirt off and get your grove on to our slamming DJ's thats just fine too!

      Bears and good times
      great bear bar, friendly crowd, always something happening, very central. Well, a perfect bear bar, very central, very clean. It only miss a backroom and a bigger space for smokers , and it will be perfect ;)

      Nice bar
      Apparently their are only four bars left in Austin. On a recent weekend visit to meet a friend from out of town, we visited this bar twice. The drinks are not too expensive and the bar staff is friendly and helpful. Our fist visit was a Friday afternoon and the crowd was a healthy mix of types. We returned Saturday night for "80's night" and though a bit more crowded the crowd was definitely slanted toward the bears more than the leather. It was a nice, friendly and welcoming atmosphere as most things bearish tend to be, and we would definitely return.

      Texas Size Welcome
      I visited Austin last April and The Iron Bear had only just opened. It was a quiet thursday night but that gave me the chance to sit at the bar, enjoy a beer and have a great conversation with the barkeep. Now, I live in Seattle where people NEVER talk to each other, so going in and getting a genuine "howdy" and ernest smile was awesome. It's a great crew at The Iron Bear.

      love this place
      I love this place, always see people I know and its just a friendly place, not to mention the eye candy. Downside the drinks seem to be all over the place. Never know if you will gy a watered down drink or one with nothing but liquor.

      Great, great GRRRRReat bar!
      I noticed a "bad" review on here for this bar and I'm not one to post reviews for most of anything but Iron Bear is a FANTASTIC bar. The staff is incredible, the space is great and the management/owners actually listen to their clients. I'm not sure why "outandabout" had such a poor experience but you should give them another shot. The Iron Bear has definitely set themselves up to be an Austin staple. Great bar, guys. Thanks for the great times and looking forward to many, many more.

      Awesome bar!
      This bar is great. Went last Sunday for a beer bust. Lots of friendly guys. One of the owners actually came up and talked to me and made sure I was having a great time. I will definitely be back!
