Stagger Lee

Tucked into the historic heart and serene soul of Rainey Street sits Austin’s home of hospitality, The Stagger Lee.

Inspired by the classic Lloyd Price song “Stagger Lee” (covered by such luminary musicians as Woody Guthrie, Taj Mahal, The Grateful Dead, Duke Elllington, Cab Calloway, James Brown, The Clash and Bob Dylan), our little haven of happiness is the perfect spot for your quick drink, slow brew, your night out or your company party.

While we fill your spirit with joy, appease your belly with barbecue, delicately smoked and served deliciously by Metcalf BBQ!

Mike Reese | "That guy that looks like Trey"

Michael was born in South Texas on the coast. He owns many leather bound books and his home smells of rich mahogany. A long time service industry professional, he loves throwing ice into the deep fryer and putting salt and lime on Guinness (1 truth, 1 falsehood). Always down to get up, or up to get down. Outside of work you can likely find him sitting outside staring at the sun, or practicing air guitar in a random parking lot. Ask him his favorite joke!

Personal Motto: "if you can dream it, you can funk it'

Julia has been in Austin’s industry for the last 5 years and has been slangin’ at Stagger since Oct. 2020. She grew up out in the Dallas area but loves the home she's made in ATX.

When she's not at the bar servin' you up with some sass…. she spends a whole lot of time at home with her two dogs, in my lil’ art studio, and cooking for her people. "Long walks on the beach really aren’t my thing… so stop asking. If you’re on Rainey Street. pop in and let's talk whiskey!"
