After enjoying the hustle and bustle that comes with the fantastic downtown energy in Austin, its sometimes nice to kick back your feet over a glass of wine or coffee, which you can literally do at Halcyon. Just off Congress Avenue at 4th Street, Halcyon is a coffeehouse by day and a bar & lounge by night where you can relax, catch up with friends, or even buckle down to get some work done.
extensive menu, this space provides a light breakfast fare (including the required Austin breakfast taco), lunch, weekend brunches, and their famous desserts along with a full bar and espresso cocktail selection. On my last visit a friend and I ordered the chocolate espresso martini, Halcyons signature cocktail with Stoli Vanil, chocolate Godiva and a house espresso, along with the incredibly amazing smores! A steal at $6.50, you can have your very own miniature fire-pit brought to your table to share the makings for your perfect smore, and roast your own marshmallows to perfection.
Located in the Warehouse District, Halcyon also stays open until a solid 3 a.m., so youre also able to hit it up after your evening for a quick late-night treat. Its guaranteed to taste twice as good after your favorite bars closing-time!
Whats your favorite place to sit back and relax when youre downtown?
