Contigo would be as at home on the range as it is nestled in the arms of urban Austin. The dream of boyhood campmates and now business partners Ben Egerton and 2012 Rising Star Chef Andrew Wiseheart, Contigo is an open-air, casual watering hole with a slow Southern vibe and an ample dose of hospitality. In true cowboy style, a fire pit outside recalls evenings on the range. But things really warm up in the kitchen and behind the bar: Wiseheart makes some of the best food in town, making playful bar chow and elegant composed plates—all with a strong sense of Texas identity. And Mixologist Houston Eaves is not only the maker of Austin’s official cocktail of 2012 (which says a lot for this hard partying town), his drinks menu has something for every drinking stripe—day drinkers, bitters-trending cocktailians, and after-dinner drinkers looking to wind down (or up) with one of Eaves’ many steamin’ Hot Toddies.
