Jack Wilson’s RC&B opened its doors in 2014 and found success waiting outside as its first customer. Every night is jumping: Monday bluegrass night, Tuesday trivia night, Wednesday’s outdoor cinema, Erik Hokkanen fiddling the bejesus out of Thursday nights. Friday, Saturday, and Sundays there’s an array of local and touring singer-songwriters. Radio boasts a sprawling outdoor patio, best beers, and native Austin singer-songwriter Wilson strives to make sure you get the best espresso this side of the late Flipnotics.
