Easily mistaken for just another house on the block, come to Lustre Pearl to grab a cold beer, hang out with a large group of friends, and catch a live music show. As the story goes, the old house was bought for an aspiring singer named Lustre, who wound up in Austin and converted the house into a bar cum live music venue. The house has been gutted to make room for a bar and a jukebox, but most of the patrons grab a drink and head into the backyard, where you'll find an eclectic collection of chairs and makeshift tables, hula hoops, and a ping pong table.
