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.
