UPDATE: March 18, 10:28

Operating under a citywide ban on dine-in service for restaurants and bars, Turnstile Coffee Beer and Spirits will open March 20 with a curbside service selling coffee to go, owner Mark Harris said.


Turnstile Coffee Beer and Spirits will open its doors to customers at 10025 Burnet Road, Austin, on March 20, owner Mark Harris told Community Impact Newspaper. Harris opened the cafe and bar with the “brew and brew” concept, where Turnstile will serve high quality coffee in the morning and transition to craft libations in the afternoon and evening.

“Our emphasis is on craft drinks. Everything is going to be high quality,” Harris said.

Turnstile serves fair trade, locally roasted coffee and espresso options. The bar at Turnstile will feature 20 total taps, 16 of which will be dedicated to craft beers with rotating, seasonal craft cocktails on the other taps.

More craft cocktails will be available to order off the bar’s menu, made with “boutique distilleries,” Harris said. Turnstile’s menu will also offer 50-60 whiskey options.
