Opening in downtown Austin this month is a new eatery featuring salads and sandwiches combined with a speakeasy-style bar. Effective Monday, April 15, downtown Austin’s 301 W 5th Street will become the home of the cocktail bar Powder Room and sandwich cafe Manny’s.

Manny’s allows guests to experience farm-fresh indulgence with a menu of curated sandwiches, revitalizing smoothies, and artisanal snacks. The intimate garden patio offers a retreat-like ambiance, where lush surroundings transport you from the city’s hustle.

Classic sandwiches like BLTs, French dips, chicken salad, and Cubanos are served at Manny’s. Additionally, the menu features house made dishes such the Crying Tiger, a baguette sandwich with roast beef, tomatoes, mint, Thai basil, toasted rice powder, and the restaurant’s signature sauce, a spicy Thai-style condiment.

Also, tartines or open-faced sandwiches will be available at the cafe. Bowls, salads, and smoothies are popular choices on the menu. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options will also be available. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be served.

Customers enter the Powder Room through a backdoor of Manny’s. This cozy cocktail lounge boasts a classic vibe. In the coziness of a small living room, guests can order delectable snacks, expertly made cocktails, and traditional and house beverages. Powder Room offers experiences for those looking for sophistication. Take your evenings to the next level with tableside mixology and cocktail service where customers can customize their drinks, all accompanied by the upbeat tunes of live music and artistic displays that perfectly capture this unique cocktail lounge.
