Austin.com Chic Speakeasy Daisy Lounge Opens in South Austin

South Austin is getting better and better for Austinites who don’t want to drive downtown. Now there’s even a speakeasy-style cocktail bar opening near the Circle C! Daisy’s Lounge is located in the space between Keepers and Oasthouse Kitchen + Bar on Slaughter Lane in South Mopac. It’s elegant, sophisticated and definitely worth a visit.

Things to Know About Daisy Lounge Speakeasy in South Austin

The elegant space is located in the same building as Keepers and Oasthouse, in an area that was once a largely unused foyer. The team saw an opportunity to transform the space and create something that was sorely lacking in South Austin. Previously, residents of the area had to head downtown for upscale nightlife options. Now, they have their own downtown Austin-style cocktail bar without leaving the neighborhood. A simple image of a daisy above the door marks the entrance.

Daisy's Lounge

The three-story space can accommodate approximately 38 guests in total. While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend making a reservation to ensure you get served. The lounge is the brainchild of Silk Road Hospitality, led by executive chef Amir Hajimaleki and including: Keepers, Oasthouse Kitchen + Bar, District Kitchen + CocktailsAND Shortie’s Pizza and Grinders.

What to drink

They serve classic favorites like the Dirty Martini and Margarita, of course. But it’s the big, specialty drinks and experimental offerings that really shine. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Daisy made with coconut washed Gunpowder Gin, lemon juice, Cointreau, Rich Simple and lavender rinse
  • Daisy old fashioned made with bourbon, black sugar from Okinawa and a blend of homemade bitters
  • Spring made with haku vodka, coffee concentrate, Mr Blacks, Demerara sugar and bitters
  • Oaxacan soda made of vida mezcal, lemon juice, ginger, cucumber + tarragon soda

A typical menu will include small bites such as olives, nuts, crisps and small lobster rolls from Keepers. Olive dishes have Persian influences, such as a dish called Zeytoon Parvardeh (a Persian appetizer made with olives from Gilan Province (northern Iran) and pickled Castelvetrano olives, walnuts, pomegranate and herbs. Mixed nuts include Tavazo, saffron and lemon spice. Special desserts are offered weekly and other culinary “experiences” such as caviar combinations are in the works.
