Neighborhood Bar Revelry Is Now Open on East 6th

From the owner of Corner Bar

Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

Corner Bar owner Jonathan Lochrie debuted neighborhood spot Revelry Kitchen and Bar quietly in mid-August. It will focus on cocktails, beer, and bar food served counter-service style.

The drinks program, designed by Lance Posey (formerly of Star Bar), includes cocktails mixed with juices, beers, and wines. Only beers in cans and bottles are available for the moment, with drafts coming later. Chef Teddy Simon, who came from the Chinatown restaurants, is cooking up bar-appropriate food, like lollipop chicken wings, fries, burgers, and sandwiches.

The patio with a giant pecan tree makes for solid people watching. Televisions are a plenty for big sports games, and there will be games places in the yard. The inside of the space is decked out in giant murals.

For now, Revelry’s hours are from 5 to 2 a.m. Wednesday to Sunday. It will expand to include lunch and brunch eventually. Happy hour is held every day from 5 to 7 p.m., with $6 cocktails and $2 beers.

Before opening Revelry and Corner Bar, Lochrie had his hands in Firehouse Lounge. He’s already working on a second location of Revelry out on 6215 North Lamar.
