Enjoy this decidedly unaltered temple to "old Austin", starting at 3pm or later.
Your love-it-or-hate-it Downtown hangout opens at 9pm.
It's open from 10am (!) to 10pm, and you'll find great bar food, as well as a fireplace and blankets on the patio.
Part of Austin’s hottest new bar destination, East Cesar Chavez, Craftsman opens its always-welcoming doors at 7pm to serve up all your favorite holiday drinks -- Prosecco on draft, “Holiday 75’s” (holiday tea-infused gin, lemon juice, Prosecco), hot toddies, and Whipped Irishmen (Jameson, Whipped Baileys Irish Cream, dark roast coffee, and cinnamon simple syrup).
Stay Gold joins neighbor Craftsman’s cheer, opening its doors at 8pm and adding live music at 10pm, creating the perfect one-two punch to round out your Christmas Day activities. Its winter-themed cocktails (try the Headless Horseman with pumpkin syrup) are also among the best in town.
Sign up here for our daily Austin email and be the first to get all the food/drink/fun in town.
