Halcyon’s Tableside S’mores is a must try. When you order it, you are presented with a mini campfire experience, complete with marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate. They also have adult S’mores, which provide option to dip your marshmallow in liqueurs.

Its signature cocktail is the Chocolate Espresso Martini, which mixes Halcyon’s special house espresso with Stoli Vanil and chocolate Godiva. Another unique drink is its Long Island Iced Coffee, which like the martini is “potent.” Heads up! There’s a two drink limit on this one.

Aside from its signature items, Halcyon boasts an impressive brunch experience on Saturdays and Sundays. From 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., Halcyon offers bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Marys and a special brunch menu.

Besides offering guests a wide variety of options to cleanse their palates and fill their stomachs, Halycon takes time to give back to the community.

Halcyon also works closely with many of the businesses in Austin’s Warehouse District.

With Austin being the “live music capital of the world,” it’s only appropriate that Halcyon features some local talent. Two nights a week, guests can experience sounds of unique artists. On Mondays, Halcyon hosts World Music Jam, an open mic night with , and Wednesdays are Night Music at Halcyon. Join them at 10pm for Jazz, Blues and Swing music.
