J Blacks Feel Good Lounge

Entrance of J BLACKS downtown on West 6th Street

710 B W 6th St
Austin, TX 78701-2708

J Blacks, similar to most the bars on 6th St., is on the more sophisticated side. Located in the heart of West Sixth Street, this venue is an awesome place to go sit and have a drink while you watch any sporting event that is playing. The game is projected onto a large screen that basically takes up the entire wall at the entrance of the bar.

But the big TV isn’t the only thing that is great about this place! Happy Hour at J Blacks has awesome deals! If you take a look at the menu, all the Sharing Plates that are starred are half off, starting as low as $3.50. In terms of drinks at J Blacks Happy Hour, everything is $1 off and all bottles are 25 percent off. So if you are looking for a place to go with a friend for drinks and appetizers, or a place to sit and watch the game, this is definitely a good spot for you.

There is a great atmosphere almost all the time at J Blacks. The crowd usually consists of young professionals who are interested in mingling with other people around their age. The venue is conveniently located on West 6th St. next to many other hot spots like The Ranch and Third Base Bar. If you go to J Blacks on Thursdays or Saturdays I would definitely consider sticking around for the later hours of the night. J Blacks is one of my favorite places to hit up on Thursday and Saturday nights because the crowd is always great, it has great location, and something that may appeal to smokers, you can smoke inside the bar where the big TV is (it is outdoors but you are still considered to be inside the bar). I noticed this aspect was especially favorable to some of the men who were watching the game for hours on the big screen TV. Overall I would definitely give this venue and its Happy Hour a thumbs-up.

    This looks like it could be a cool place, except I’m allergic to smoke. Do you find that it’s really pervasive throughout the whole bar?

  • Rachel Levi says:

    No not at all… You can just stand away from the patio and you definitely wont smell it…it’s not like there are that many people smoking at once… you should definitely be fine
