Just as it sets to celebrate its seventh anniversary, East Side Showroom on East Sixth Streeet announced it will be closing July 24. The throwback bar with some steampunk leanings was one of the first movers on the East Side, bringing continental jazz, craft cocktails and various iterations of cuisine and small plates to East Austin long before there was an obvious appetite for such things. In the mini-epochs of Austin entertainment and nightlife, it is an end of an era. More details to come.
