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!

One of our favorite equal part cocktails other than a Negroni is the Naked and Famous. First introduced to us by Death and Co in NY. It’s said to be a take on the classic cocktail Last word and Paper Plain. With the smokiness from Vida Mezcal, the bitterness from the Aperol, the uniquely sweet taste of the Yellow Chartreuse and the sourness of the lime, this is a modern classic with many layers of flavor you are sure to enjoy! . . . #classiccocktails #itsadate #lastword #nakedandfamous #mezcalcocktails #happyhour #goodvibes #imbibe #instacocktail #instacocktails #aperol #yellowchartreuse #eater #eateraustin #thrillist #culturemap #atxlife

Fernet Branca Menta (also known as Branca Menta) was created in the 1960s, inspired by a famous opera singer Maria Callas. The singer was known to drink Fernet Branca along with a touch of mint syrup before each performance. Try @fernetbranca menta in our house cocktail the Minx in Maui made with @pyratrumdistilleries, pineapple juice, lemon and sugar. Minty, complex and refreshing! . . . #brancamenta #fernetbranca #fernetcocktails #imbibe #imbibegram
