This friendly neighborhood dive bar serves boozy drinks and Southern fare.
This East Austin answer to a Parisian brasserie (literally, “brewery,” but practically speaking, restaurant) embraces early 20th century roots (the cottage itself was built in 1937) and creates a picturesque vintage experience. Fit with a cozy bar, wooden tables, and great Depression-era decor, the disco balls on the patio bring the ambience back to our current millennium. Paired with its late-night dining of standout French bistro fare (steak frites, Escargots à la Bourguignonne), readings (Richard Hell), spoken word (Jello Biafra), and the occasional midnight show (Louis Armstrong singer Jewel Brown) for the lucky few that join the party at the 11th hour.
