Dallas cocktail bar The Tipsy Alchemist is coming to Austin. The bar and lounge, with an emphasis on drinks “with a touch of science, art, and technique,” is planning on opening on the second floor of 70 Rainey Street in the downtown on Wednesday, January 23.

The Austin iteration of Tipsy Alchemist will offer the same Dallas menu, formatted like the periodic table under the aim of “elements of flavor.” The Alchemist Margarita is made with a salt-chocolate tequila and candied mangoes; the bright green Edison with frozen mint and lime and served in a lightbulb-shaped glass; and then the Mad Hatter which is actually served via a pneumatic tube transportation system throughout the bar. There’s a dedicated menu of larger drinks served in Ketel One copper pots or swan bowls.

Special to the Austin location will be the patio featuring more beers and sharable drinks, plus a stage for concerts. The space will be designed by Coeval Space Design and Concepts, with lounge seating, high-tops, and furniture.

Tipsy Alchemist opened two years ago by the SBBC Hospitium hospitality group. The Austin location will also be run by operating partner David Nguyen. “I can’t think of a better city to open our second location than Austin,” said managing partner Stephen Underhill Jr. in a statement.
