Description:

One of the Last Genuine Texas Honky Tonks. We welcome good friends and good times. We have a bit of history, originally this bar 65 years ago was a black bar called Dotson's.

There were a lot of farming families South of Slaughter Lane. The Dotson's owned the adjacent properties also and farmed the land. It became Giddy Ups in 1993. It has been a favorite local hangout where people have made friends for life.

Our roaring fireplace warms folks when its cold outside. We have our full liquor license and have made a few renovations we think you will enjoy. Game room/patio area with AC & heat. Outside seating area with beautiful sunsets. 4 acres behind the bar welcome chili/BBQ cook-offs, outdoor music events, fund raisers, wedding parties, hot rod shows, motorcycle events, pretty much anything you can think of has been hosted at Giddy Ups.

Good comfortable feeling when you walk in the doors, often folks say it feels like home, and Nancy says "it is her living room, as her residence is not large enough to meet all of these great people."

The musicians that grace "The Biggest Little Stage in South Austin" get great reviews and Giddy Ups has a reputation of booking great music.

Check the website for music and event listings too. Friendly folks always looking forward to meeting new folks - come see us sometime and visit a bit.

    One of the best honky tonks you've ever been to. The Giddy Ups is dedicated to music, musicians and of course the patrons. One of the last bastions of old South Austin.
