Inside Second Bar + Kitchen’s Expansive Second Home

Tour the new space

Second Bar + Kitchen brings the downtown favorite to far north Austin this week, overseen by founding chef David Bull. It’s all part of La Corsha Hospitality Group’s slow but steady empire building, which already includes the recently opened Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, and many other projects.

Eater photographer Courtney Pierce took a tour of the spacious restaurant’s digs within the Archer Hotel, which includes soaring ceilings with two dangling giant stars, the semicircle of banquettes, and bar pouring out drinks concocted by mixologist Jason Stevens. The patio overlooks the streets of Domain Northside (where all of the new restaurants and bars are flocking to in the fancy pants mall).

The staggered opening means that only breakfast and lunch are being served for now. Dinner begins tomorrow, the terrace menu launches next Wednesday, September 7, and finally the pool opens on Saturday, September 10. Hours will be from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays through Thursday, and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Next up for the hospitality group are the original Second Bar’s renovations, Bar Congress’ reopening, the unveiling of the revamped iconic Green Pastures, Second Bar’s airport operation, the East Austin hotel project, which includes now-closed bar Wonderland, and other hotels around Texas.
