Now On Tap: Espuela's Bar To Open at Hays Street Bridge


  • Lea Thompson
Though local beer lovers were sad to see Big Hops' downtown location close this summer, new drinking spot Espuela's Bar at the Bridge has quietly taken over its space.

Located at 306 Austin St., steps from Hays Street Bridge, the new bar offers affordable beers and specialties on draft, including a vanilla sage white tea kombucha, jointly developed by local companies Teaness and Element Kombucha.
According to Espuela's signage, the bar is open 3 p.m. to midnight, Monday through Thursday; noon to 1 a.m. on Saturdays; and noon to midnight, Friday through Sunday.

Espuela's owner was unavailable for immediate comment. We'll update if that changes.
