What You'll Get
Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of classy lounge eats at J. BLACK'S Feel Good Lounge. This West 6th Street feel-goodery has accumulated an arsenal of accolades, including three feature articles in Eat and Drink Austin.
Unlike recommended solitary activities such as filling diaries with embarrassing secrets, running as a third-party candidate, and juggling flaming chainsaws, J. BLACK'S menu is designed for socializing, with many easily shared tapas-style options and a daily happy hour from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (and all day Sunday). Bring culinary cohorts to enjoy Texas Kobe sliders ($13), a marriage of Kobe-beef cheeseburgers and dijon mustard with pickles, ketchup, and hand-cut fries. The shrimp ceviche ($12) pleases crowds with tiger shrimp, grape tomatoes, red onion, avocado, piquant serrano peppers, and chopped cilantro in a spicy lime sauce with tortilla strips. J. BLACK'S also offers a medley of 12-inch pizzas, including the margherita ($10), barbecue pulled pork ($12), crab and portobello ($14), and the Stefano (applewood-smoked bacon, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, shallots, and arugula, $14).
J. BLACK'S rustic atmosphere is sprinkled with local art on the earthy brown and deep reds of exposed-brick walls. High cocktail tables, plush couches in a lounge setting, and plenty of indoor-outdoor seating keep the large centerpiece bar the focal point of the evening. J. BLACK'S Lounge is also an excellent hot spot for relaxing with an extensive list of loveable libations, even though today's Groupon is only good for food. Feast with friends, dine with dates, or schmooze unsuspecting sidewalkers with a face full of fashionable food at J. BLACK'S Feel Good Lounge.

- With leather booths and minimal décor, J. Black’s offers Austinites a wicked happy hour with alternatives to greasy pub food such as Ceviche, Salmon Mousse and Lamb Chop “Lollipops.” – Darcie Duttweiler, Rare
- J. Black’s has a style all its own, a perfect harmony of modern class and Austin tradition, with a dash of 1940s appeal. You feel as if you’re in an old Hollywood-style lounge, and at any moment a Hepburn or Bogart could walk by with a beverage in hand and throw a casual glance your way. – Mary Morrison, Eat & Drink Austin
- Crazy to say, but this is the best food I have had in a bar EVER! – wendyyork, Citysearch
- The atmosphere is so comfortable and they play great music. It's hard to leave! – megschmeg, Citysearch
