As the name suggests, East Side Showroom is situated in Austin's vibrant East Side. A reflection of the neighborhood's bohemian spirit, this 1901 structure holds an eclectic, ever-changing art collection (including works from owner/metal sculptor Mickie Danae Spencer) and plays host to a wide-ranging mix of live music including gypsy jazz bands and tango, as well as steel drums and ukuleles for Tiki night. Black-and-white silent movies contribute to the restaurant's pre-War era theme, as well as pre-Prohibition cocktails that complement a “slow food” devoted, shared plates menu. The ample cocktail selection is a blend of science and art, featuring all house-made syrups, infusions, tinctures and preserves.
