Houndstooth’s East Austin location is now offering all-day happy hour
Only one Houndstooth Coffee location in Austin has a full bar — and there’s now extra reason to visit the eastside spot with the introduction of all-day happy hour on Mondays through Thursdays every week, featuring deals on the cafe’s craft cocktails.
Houndstooth took inspiration for its cocktail menu from its sister cocktail bar, Jettison, in Dallas, where an additional location of the cafe and its coffee roasting company, Tweed, have taken up shop. So there’s a heavy focus on the agave spirits, with three tequila or mezcal-based drinks in the specialty cocktails section and a margarita (available on the rocks or frozen) in the classic cocktails section.
Cocktails include the Red Headed Oaxacan, a Penicillin twist with Arette Reposado Tequila, Fidencio Mezcal, housemade ginger-honey syrup and agave, and the Southern Negroni with Fidencio Mezcal, Campari and Caperitif. Both are on the menu at Jettison.
For all-day happy hour, the cocktails are on special on certain days. Here’s what to expect:
- Monday: All cocktails are $8
- Tuesday: All classic cocktails $8
- Wednesday: All speciality cocktails $8 and wine half off by the bottle (rotating list)
- Thursday: $6 frozen margaritas
Drinks are normally priced at $10-$11 (frozen margaritas at $9), so all-day happy hour knocks off a couple bucks. And with Houndstooth’s hours — 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, and 6:30 a.m. to midnight Friday-Sunday — day-drinking is totally OK. (But in this town, when is it not?)
Houndstooth Coffee is located at 2823 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. There are also locations on North Lamar Boulevard and downtown on Congress Avenue, but these don’t serve alcohol. For more information, visit houndstoothcoffee.com.
