Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 219 West's rooftop lounge thumps with beats from local DJs. Up here, visitors enjoy drink specials and views of Austin's skyline as its buildings unravel measuring tape to see who's taller. Downstairs, where food is served, the multi-purpose venue's menu is just as spirited as its parties—in fact, dishes are categorized under their ideal drink pairings. Under "Beer," diners may find chipotle mac and cheese, while the popular tilapia nachos with roasted corn, black beans, and pico de gallo anchor the "Tequila" section. 219 West's famed mini burgers, meanwhile, have a category all to themselves, though guests can also get them as full-size burgers if they choose.
