Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

You’re sure to come across plenty of unusual sights while wandering around downtown, but a Floppy Disk Repair company is a little out there even for Austin.  Turns out the big “Floppy Disk Repair Co.” sign next to Handlebar is just a front for the speakeasy Red Headed Stepchild. You’ll need to put in the secret passcode, which changes frequently, on the keypad outside to enter, or you could always hope that someone with the right connections lets you slide in with them. Waiting for you is a small space where the drinks are fun and the vibe is creepy-cool (there’s a neon sign saying “mmm… your hair smells pretty,” as well as a framed chainsaw).
