BUTTERFLY BAR: cultural harbor and distinct destination Since 2011
The Butterfly Bar @ The VORTEX offers some of Austin’s best handcrafted cocktails as well as hosting community events including arts markets, librarian happy hour, TGQ meet-ups, trivia, dance and fitness classes, fundraisers, local music showcases, and gallery art openings.
Open seven nights a week in East Austin, The Butterfly Bar @ The VORTEX is a cultural hub, a butterfly sanctuary, and comfortable environment for deepening our conversations.
Open daily from 5pm-midnight, 1am on Saturdays.
Parked in The Vortex Yard is a family owned and operated Italian food truck, called Patrizi’s. With over 50 years of experience, Nic Patrizi brings delicious Italian food to Austin. After a full night of fun, a late night snack of pasta, or dessert sounds like the perfect way to end a romantic evening…East Side style.
Open daily from 5pm-11pm.
