Soccer-centric Tap 24 opens today in old Cuatro’s space

Matthew Odam

Austin soccer fans are getting one of their favorite haunts back. The restaurant formerly known as Cuatro’s reopens today as Tap 24 at 1004 W. 24th St.

Owner Cuatro Kowalski says the restaurant/bar will focus on burgers (using different bread and beef than they used during their six-year run as Cuatro’s) and will serve 24 draft beers. Though they plan to show all sports, Kowalksi says 24 Tap will be “pretty soccer-centric,” and that the restaurant will extend its hours once the English Premiere League returns to action.

That all starts around noon today, as the bar and restaurant opens to the public for the first time. They will only be serving drinks today, but hope to be serving food by tomorrow.

And, despite menu changes, those who loved the queso and pickle chips need not worry, both items will be back on the new menu.

Tap 24 will host a couple of radio remotes during the World Cup and will serve $2 Miller Lite throughout the tournament.
