Then, here are the best places to watch it in Austin.

Cloak Room

From personal experience, there is no better place to imbibe alcohol while simultaneously drinking in political theatre than at the Cloak Room, just off the Capitol grounds by the loading dock. For something a little more upscale (and bigger), my favorite politico bar is at the Stephen F. Austin hotel (the Intercontinental for those of you non-locals).
