Upstairs on Trinity and Vinyl, two new bars from ATX Brands breastauranteur Doug Guller, will officially open their doors this Thursday, January 16. Upstairs on Trinity will feature wine, champagne, sangria and small, shareable plates, and Vinyl will specialize in cocktails and general sceney-ness - it also sports a secret entrance. The bars are designed to compliment the company's existing bar in that space, the craft-beer-focused Chicago House. Opening weekend will be celebrated with lots of special events; more details in the full press release is below.


Vinyl & Upstairs On Trinity to Open January 16 with Music and Drink Specials All Weekend Long

AUSTIN, TX (January 14, 2014) – ATX Brands announced today that Vinyl & Upstairs on Trinity, located above Chicago House at 607 Trinity in downtown Austin, are set to open their doors on Thursday, January 16. To celebrate the openings, ATX Brands will be holding a sampling party that will last all weekend from January 16 to January 18 with complimentary tastings, drink specials and special guest DJs. Vinyl and Upstairs on Trinity will hold their official launch party on Saturday, January 25 from 9:00pm to 2:00am featuring music by Stylust Beats, Le Moti and Galvanix.

"I'm excited to share this trifecta with Austin," said ATX Brands CEO and Founder Doug Guller. "We're able to cater to any audience with a wide variety of craft beers from Chicago House, sophisticated wines and champagnes at Upstairs on Trinity and great cocktails next door at Vinyl. This has been in the works since we first opened Chicago House, and it will be hard to find a better mix in downtown Austin at one location."

Next door to Chicago House is downtown's mysterious hidden gem, Vinyl, a music inspired lounge focused on eclectic and cutting edge talent of underground musicians and DJs from Texas and across the globe. Adding to Austin's hot nightlife scene, Vinyl features a one-of-a-kind intimate atmosphere with a secret entrance, a 13,000-piece vinyl collection, graffiti inspired décor and amazing cocktails.

Head up the stairs from Chicago House to relax at Upstairs on Trinity, the perfect retreat from the hustle of 6th Street. Surrounded by beautiful limestone walls draped in crimson with endless windows and glowing chandeliers, Upstairs on Trinity exudes elegance and sophistication. The venue will feature an extensive selection of premium wines, exceptional champagnes, sangrias and small plates. Menu items include fresh flatbread pizza, cheese plates, charcuterie, and local sweet treats.

The launch party for Vinyl and Upstairs on Trinity will feature Donnie Dee and Dick Nickson on Thursday, January 16, DJ Manny and DJ Charlie + DJ Jeska on Friday, January 17 and Boom Baptist & Digg on Saturday, January 18. Doors will be open from 9:00pm to 2:00am. RSVP for the non-stop three-day event can be found here.
