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.

About @[1222556337806098:274:The Hippie House] ::: The Hippie House all began in a backyard in South Austin. Our belief was that art & music, when used in conjunction, are the most powerful tools that we as humans possess today. When we started, we began hosting weekly/monthly events in the South Austin community that began a cult-like following for years to come. The Hippie House was pulled out from under us by the city of Austin and we were beyond distraught. Our community, fans, fellow brothers & sisters took after us and continued to find ways for us to keep this alive. Almost two years later we have worked with over 20 different venues/galleries/lounges in the greater Austin area, have worked with over 200 different artists from all over the country including painters, crafters, musicians, tinker-ers, thinkers, dreamers, students, educators and do-ers. The Hippie House serves as a canvas for local artists, musicians, photographers, crafters, students and educators to collaborate in commUNITY. When we create together we create a long-lasting relationship that survives on a symbiotic relationship. Our duty as the House is to spread your art, teachings, learning through a variety of different mediums. In addition to our unique events, we are also passionate about --- Artist Management • Booking • Promotion • Event Planning • Event Logistics • Creative Consulting • Experiential Design • Graphic Design • Photo + Video •

You can drink all day if you don’t start in the morning. #sundayfunday
