Lustre Pearl was the first location opened by the mastermind behind converting dilapidated houses into bars, Bridget Dunlap. Immediately in 2009, Lustre Pearl won over the Austin 20-something, bar-hopping community with its sheer charm and eclectic outfittings.
Over the past few years, the crowd has defined itself as predominately the post-college frat type, with a sprinkling of East Sixth hipsters who dared crossover the east-west dividing line that is I-35. The gutted house is full of strange and interesting textures and the backyard offers plenty of tables and hula hoops to go 'round, but you will have to patiently wait for your turn at the ping-pong table.
If the post-collegiate, polo-wearing masses isn't your type, try happy hour here. It's a time of a day at Lustre Pearl where east meets west without any contention, and everyone's just damn happy to be out of the office and under the Austin sky.
