2. The Park at the Domain 11601 Domain Dr, Ste 200, Austin, TX 78758

Union Park has shuttered its West 6th watering hole and moved into a massive, still-sporting Aloft space outfitted with two patios, tasteful Longhorn memorabilia, and a gloriously gratuitous flatscreen armada (15+) including a custom 360-degree projection ring-screen to, you know, rule them all.

3. Henri's 2024 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

Henri's is a by-day retail & sandwich shop that morphs into a neighborhood wine bar come nightfall. Snag affordable vinos curated by the owners (two are level-two sommeliers), and grab provisions from their locally stocked deli case, or just go for a rotating sando like a rye number with raclette, pastrami, house mustard, and McClure's pickles.
