Urban Wine + Liquor Takes Last Retail Space At The Austonian

Urban Wine + Liquor Takes Last Retail Space At The Austonian

The last retail space under downtown Austin’s Austonian condos will go to Urban Wine + Liquor and its proprietor, Austin-based wine expert Buckley Wineholt (great name for a wine expert).

The store will offer wine, spirits, beers, barware, imported cigars and cigarettes, and a choice of artisanal foods including Texas-produced items. The shop’s 2,615-square-foot storefront on Congress Avenue will be designed by local design-build firm Bercy Chen Studio.

The Austonian retail has turned out to be a boon for Congress Ave.  I’m a big fan of the Caffe Medici space – one of my favorite coffee shops.  This should be a compliment to the neighboring Second Bar + Kitchen, too.

  1. How much retail space in total does the Austonian have? Any idea on their rents? Second Bar & Kitchen has a pretty great selection and menu!
