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 Hawaiian soul food truck Alley Cat every day and our backyard Tiki Bar Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
