A handful of businesses around Austin have closed within the past month, though some will remain in operation in some capacity. This list is not comprehensive.

Epic Fun

The family-friendly entertainment center will be closing its doors at the end of June, which was announced via social media June 6.

"With a heavy heart, we announce that Epic Fun will be closing its doors for good on June 30," the post read.

A reason for the closure was not given and representatives did not respond to requests for comment as of press time.

Epic Fun offers laser tag, mini bowling, an arcade, axe throwing and more.Austin Pickle Ranch

After less than a year of operation on West Sixth Street, the pickleball facility closed in early June, according to an announcement made via social media.

"Despite our best efforts and extensive negotiations, we have been unable to secure necessary city zoning permissions to keep the Austin Pickle Ranch on West [Sixth] open," the post read.

In a statement from Austin Pickle Ranch, officials said they hope to reopen on West Sixth Street at some point in the future. In the meantime, operations will continue at the North Austin location at 11000 N. I-35, Bldg. B—which opened at the end of May.


The women’s clothing and accessory shop, founded by Lucy Jolis in 2013, has closed its Austin location within the South Congress Hotel. The Malibu, California, location of Sunroom will be relocating and remain open. The online shop will also remain open.

1417 French Bistro

The Bouldin Creek neighborhood restaurant shuttered its doors at the end of May, which was announced via social media. The restaurant was owned by Allison Welsh and offered a variety of French specialty dishes. A note on the door states the building will be redeveloped to make way for a new project called Bouldin Creek Lofts.
  • Closed May 30
  • 1417 S. First St., Austin
Cuvée Coffee

The coffee shop and roaster closed its doors in East Austin but will continue operations from a storefront in the Rainey District downtown. Cuvée's history stretches back to the late 1990s when owner Mike McKim launched the coffee roasting business with beans sourced from around the world. After distributing products locally for years, Cuvée eventually settled into the space on East Sixth Street that's now shutting down after a decade due to a rent increase.

The craft coffee roaster will maintain its space at 48 East Ave., Austin, following the east side closure.

Mi Casa Gallery

After almost three decades on South Congress Avenue, the gallery and shop closed its doors at the end of April and has relocated to Johnson City. Mi Casa Gallery sold an array of Mexican and Southwest-inspired art, pottery, jewelry and more.

The business reopened as Camino in Johnson City in early June.
