I've been down Rainey Street a few times, and I always gravitate towards this bar. When it's packed it is a little hard to get a drink (true of most places), but even when it was empty on a Sunday night it was fun to hang out and sit around. The bar tender was super pleasant and helped us pick drinks, the area is cool to wander around, and there's enough outdoor space to really spread out. It is a unique set up, and something different. In general, I really think Rainey street is far more fun than 6th street. 100% less vomit in the middle of the street, and good parking right next to the starting point, and a corral of food trucks right there too. It's a different atmosphere than 6th street, and definitely worth a look, and if you're going to go down Rainey street you should at least check this place out. My main selling point for this place: They offer maine root ginger beer. A really great treat if you've never tried it, it is not alcoholic but it is a fantastic mixer and better by itself.

Unique. Can handle large crowds. Quick bar tenders. Loses its appeal after a few visits, but still a pretty solid spot on Rainey.

It's pretty cool they made a bar out of containers! Also, there's a nice little quote on the wall in the back

I remember the days of a "quiet" Rainey street with 2 or 3 bars. Am i nostalgic for those days? Sometimes, but not as much as some because I understand and even embrace change and growth. Now with downtown expanding onto Rainey, a modern and cosmo bar such as Container Bar doesnt seem as out of place as it once was. The design is great but in the summer at least, it gets really hot. The actual container rooms are cozy and cold though. Drinks are a little pricey but what nice place isn't a little overpriced. Overall, I would be happy as an out of towner to check this place out but I'm not sure it's a "regulars" type of establishment for locals.

I am somewhat obsessed with this place. How can you not love a bar made of containers?! Hidden amongst the plethora of bars on Rainey is the Container Bar. I like coming here because it's casual and has a good crowd. You can avoid the college kiddos here and have a good time. Drinks are not dirty sixth cheap but hey it's worth the extra couple of bucks. It's a definite summer bar to visit.

Container bar is unique to say the least. It is also rarely a bad time simply because of the uniqueness and the fact that it is normally crowded but not annoyingly so. Overall, there are better bars on Rainey Street which stay more true to the Austin experience.

Rainey Street has been known for their quiet, more laid back bars in case you wanted to go out but didn't want to be around the drunk undergrads of 6th Street. Container Bar does not fit the mold of Rainey Street at all with it's loud oftentimes house music blaring and ad-hoc dance floor lawn area. They made the bar out of containers, which is pretty cool. However once the novelty wears off, and it does quickly, you're left with a not so great place at all. A single bar downstairs that makes getting drinks hard to do if you were upstairs. Oh yea, the drinks are expensive too compared to the other Rainey St bars. Container Bar belongs in Dallas, not Austin, and definitely not Rainey Street.

Definitely worth checking out at least once if you've never been. Very unique and good music on the weekends. If you don't want to deal with crowds, go to Rainey St on a week night and your friends can probably find a nice spot to hang out in one of the containers.
