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!
