The team behind Lavaca Street Bar is a busy bunch. In addition to the recently announced Stonehouse Coffee + Bar, the team will open a third outpost of the popular sports bar concept on South Lamar Boulevard this winter.

Like the original, the South Lamar location will have beer, liquor, and plenty of TVs, as well as fresh seafood, sandwiches, and snacks from Turf n' Surf Po'Boys. There will be new offerings too.

"While each Lavaca shares many similarities, there are a few differences in each location, catering to the area and those guests," says Lavaca Street Bar partner Max Moreland.

"We will look to do a much more extensive draft list with 24 rotating taps specializing in American craft and local brews. We will also be featuring what we believe to be Austin's only Randall, which is basically a double-chamber filter allowing for house-made infusions. Examples would be adding additional hops or citrus to IPAs or coffee or vanilla beans to a porter or stout."

Moreland is part of the large team behind Lavaca Street Bar, which operates the original downtown bar and the outpost in Domain Northside, as well as Gibson Street Bar, Mean Eyed Cat, Rattle Inn, Star Bar, The Wheel, and more. Several partners are also involved in the newly revamped Lala's Little Nugget and neighboring Stubb's Bar-B-Q in Crestview.

"Since opening Gibson Street Bar six years ago, we have seen some amazing growth on South Lamar with an expanded retail and residential component," says Moreland. "South Austin has always had such a cool, laid-back vibe and we feel that Stonehouse and Lavaca Street Bar will be great additions to an already exciting area and lively scene."
