Half Step Cocktail Bar

Austin, TX

The design concept ties Half Step to the architectural aesthetic of the Rainey Street National Historic District near downtown Austin. Antenora Architects adapted an existing single-story house for re-use as a cocktail bar within this former residential neighborhood that has become one of the city's most popular entertainment districts. The design team, a colloboration between Antenora Architects and the Owner,  created bar service areas both inside and along the front porch, as well a private room for exclusive gatherings. In addition, a separate service structure on the grounds provides space for on-site manufacturing of ice. Re-use of vintage elements emphasizes the architectural legacy of the original dwelling.
