Bio: Two friends attending the University of T­­exas. Maybe having a little trouble deciding exactly what major to stick with. Knew for sure, though, that their best times were forged with great friends and always involved brilliant food and music. They were known for dragging people to out-of-the-way spots to check out some band in a backwoods honky tonk or hill country roadhouse. These experiences, alongside years of work in bars and restaurants in and around Austin, were setting the stage for a decade long dream — opening a place of their own. Over the years they refined and tweaked their project ideas and ambitions, while awaiting for the right opportunity to strike. They knew that they wanted to build a place that reflected their Texas roots, and how Austin itself is both country charming and city savvy. It had to have great but unique food, reflect their passion for local and Texas-crafted beers and spirits, and showcase their creativity with unique craft cocktails. But most importantly, it had to feature great live music — a staple of any legitimate Austin establishment. Uniquely, though, it was not going to be yet another downtown venue. This would be a place that brought together all of the things they loved while also being easily accessible. Opportunity finally knocked in December when the perfect spot became available in a quickly changing neighborhood in South Austin. Begging for something that wasn’t the same old sports bar or restaurant lounge area, Sweetwater fits the bill perfectly with ample parking and no downtown traffic to fight. We teamed with Baton Creole to deliver award-winning nouveau Cajun fare from the large modern kitchen. We brought in dozens and dozens of local brews and spirits along with unique hand-crafted libations. And we installed a state-of-the-art sound system for the most important ingredient of all – live music. Blues, Country and Rock are the backbone of Sweetwater, although we also feature other fun events like Trivia Nights, comedy sets, and pool tables. There is also a large outdoor patio area where you can kick back, relax and enjoy the warm Austin nights. On weekends, we sometimes fire up “The Gun”, our giant six-shooter shaped wood-fired smoker. So stop on by, enjoy some amazing food, cold drinks, and outstanding live music. See ya soon Daniel, Joe, and Uncle Bryan
