EuroCircle’s Cocktails & Conversation @ Higher Ground

Higher Ground is Austin downtown newest social club combining restaurant, bar, and nightclub all under one roof—and to boot.

The space is decorated in Western spiritual artefacts and symbols like a private altar from a Louisiana Victorian home and a nineteenth century organ transformed into an LED-lit DJ booth. Outside, a Juliet-esque balcony boasts panoramic views of Congress Avenue and the Capitol for pre-game TikTok action, while the Sanctuary, an ivy-covered atrium, provides an airy refuge to sip a Seven Deadly Sins cocktail (try Gluttony if you prefer yours on the sweet side).

The food menu hovers on Italian-inspired fare, like prosciutto and cheddar crochette with a savory fra diavolo sauce, shaved fennel and frisée Caesar salad with bacon and pear, and the crispy porchetta Daily Bread sandwich served with arugula, peach mostarda, and traditional basil pesto.
We’ll be taking over the second Floor (steep stairs from the front door or spiral staircase from the back on the first Fl)

HAPPY HOUR Mo-Fri 4 pm to 7 pm

We have reserved a MEETING POINT – the Leather sofas when you walk in. This venue is huge – for hundreds of people.
You can reserve a table for your group or do it when you are there – there is a lot of space.
We think you will like wandering around – and that’s why the MEETING POINT stands out. Otherwise you will have long picnic tables, benches and some barstools in the bar are

The house was formerly a civic club, a French Beaux-Arts style, designed by Thomas A. Gray in 1898. The landmark building stayed in the original owner’s family until the Estonian Educational Society, Inc. purchased it in 1946. Today the space houses several Estonian organizations across its four floors. The first and second floors feature a lobby, bar & restaurant, Billiard Room, The Great Hall, and the Blue Room.
