east austin drinkery

Housed in a refurbished bungalow on East Cesar Chavez, Craftsman is a neighborhood bar with a cozy interior and expansive patio, great for large groups or a casual after work drink. The bar, which opened in 2015, retains the essence of the original space and offers thoughtful, creative cocktails that lack fuss. The bar program centers on using the best ingredients including using fresh squeezed juices and seasonal, local elements. Craftsman also offers a selection of craft beers from Texas breweries and beyond. We invite you to experience our Brazilian street food truck Boteco Espeteria every day, our backyard Tiki Bar Fridays & Saturdays as well as explore our seasonal specials like our hot cocktails!

Team Craftsman out hitting the #eastside today harvesting delicious #loquats from our neighborhood trees. They are delicious and juicy!!! Drop by and check out our special loquat menu while it lasts! * * * #loquats #loquatsofinstagram #loquatcocktails #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktailselfie #thrillistaustin #420 #partygirlatx #eater #tribeza

The loquat is originally from China but can be found growing all over Texas. The loquat fruit tastes like a mixture of peach, citrus, and mild mango. This year’s late rains have produced some fantastic loquats growing in our neighborhood so we decided to pick some and make tasty cocktails with them ... for a very limited time we will be offering a special edition loquat menu - today’s offering is the Loquat Caipirinha #crafted with fresh loquats, cachaca, passion fruit, sugar, and citrus * * #loquat #loquatseason #texasloquats #loquatsofinstagram #bartenderlife #bartenderlifestyle #bartender #cocktails #cocktailkingdom #foodporn #thrillistaustin #eateraustin #eater #cocktailsofinstagram #instacocktails #dinersdriveinsanddives #culturemapatx #austinchronicle

This cocktail reminds us of whiskey filled late nights, campfires, good friends, and laughter. Crafted with Desert Door Sotol, China-China, housemade Lavender Honey Syrup, Benedictine and Walnut Bitters the “Door to Beijing” can be found on our New Menu. Happy hour starts at 4p - we will see you there. #thrillistaustin #eateraustin #austinfoodie #bartender #bartenderlife #atxbartenders ##cocktailkingdom #cocktail #cocktailsofinstagram #happyhour #happyhouratx #whattodoinaustin #eastaustinmagazine
