The Jackalope Bar is a popular dive bar in Austin, Texas named for my favorite animal. And what would a bar with a name like that be without a giant fiberglass jackalope inside!
What is a jackalope? The jackalope is a mythical North American animal often described as having the body of a jackrabbit with the horns of an antelope. The name is a portmanteau of the two creatures: jackrabbit and antelope.
The giant fiberglass jackalope at The Jackalope Bar features steps and a saddle so visitors can climb on up to mount for an Instagram selfie.
Looking for more roadside attractions based on this creature of folklore? Find more at Wall Drug; in Mitchell, South Dakota; in Fort Worth, Texas; in Douglas, Wyoming; and another named Jacky in Austin (7121 N. Lamar Blvd).
