Seven years of college down the drain…Until now!  In 2011 four Austin friends decided to put their former degenerate years to good use and open a bar we would be proud to share.  Javelina takes its cues from our favorite places in Texas: neighborhood ice houses, hill country beer joints and historic dance halls.  We added some family recipes and ranch weekend ingenuity to our food and drink menu to round out a good time.  If you had to throw a label at it we’d call it Hill Country Soul.  Hard to define but come check us out and see if you like it.


We are located on the south end of the Rainey Street District near the turnabout across from the Mexican American Cultural Center.  Look for the pretty lights and the sweet brick patio.
