Historic Burnet Bar Keeps On Poodlin'

Grand Old Austin Tour: Aristocrat Lounge

The Poodle Dog Lounge was one of the first places in town that I discovered the old mid-'90s retro rockabilly cowpunk culture that was definitive of that era, but in later years I had caught wind that things had slid to a less than poodlicious state, and later that the Poodle Dog was shutting down. However, local barmeister Randall Stockton intervened, leading to the Burnet landmark's revitalization and rechristening as the Aristocrat Lounge, complete with a needed update, but keeping the Poodle Dog juju alive and well.
