Second Bar + Kitchen has some new digs.

The decade-old restaurant’s newest location is now open in the East Austin Hotel, after its downtown spot shuttered in 2020. We stopped by the new space last week to take a peek inside — here’s what it was like.

🪑 Interior | The restaurant is modern + eclectic, with warm colors, mixed patterns, and lush, natural textures. The space also offers window-front table seating, perfect for people-watching on East Sixth Street.

🍽 Food | The menu offers many of the same dishes as Second Bar + Kitchen’s Domain location, with some new bites such as baked brie + a grilled eggplant B.E.L.T. Our favorite plates were the grilled peach caprese, seared faroe island salmon, and crème brûlée.

🥂 Drinks | One of the most enticing aspects of the new location is an indoor-outdoor rooftop bar that overlooks East Sixth. Not a bad place for a cocktail — or two.

Don’t take our word for it: try the new spot yourself at 1108 E. 6th St.
