Tucked in a rising hill behind a beautiful garden patio on the corner of 8th (Hickory) Street & Congress Avenue, Hickory Street Bar & Grille has evolved over 20 years to become an Austin casual dining tradition. Being half underground creates an illusion of smallness. However, over 250 can be seated in several rooms & on the garden patio. It is cozy but not dark; sunlight streams in from ground level windows at the top of 18' ceilings. We also have live music for your entertainment!
