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
