The Wheel is a small, bike-themed oasis with good cocktails, a great patio, and some of the friendliest bartenders in the city. Located behind a Juiceland and next to a laundromat, you'd never know this East MLK spot existed unless you ended up there on a date or your one cool coworker happened to take you after deciding you were worthy. And if you get hungry after a few drinks, Austin Daily Press is just a few feet away and will be happy to deliver a sandwich directly to you at the bar.
