Mismatched seating, vintage lighting, and a submarine port over the bar are only part of the charm of East Side Show Room, a gypsy space and late-night haunt for Austinites in the know. Chef and Partner Sonya Coté crafts strictly farm-to-table fare with a daily changing menu. More than bar food, diners can feast on elegant seafood dishes, scrumptious charcuterie, and homey desserts that veer more savory than sweet—not to mention killer, crispy fries when potatoes are in season. And lead Mixologist Chauncey James churns out successful updates on classic cocktails (we were stirred by his martini) that you can sip while listening to live music. East Side is a fluid space—“there’s no structure,” says Coté—where you might go for a drink but end up feasting and dancing the night away.
