The Townsend takes its name from the building in which it is located, The Townsend-Thompson Building, an Austin historic landmark built in 1875.

Winner of CultureMap’s Tastemaker Award for Bar of the Year in 2016 and Eater Austin’s Best New Bar in 2015, The Townsend was created and designed by principal owner Steven Weisburd to celebrate the craftsmanship and creativity inherent in great cocktails, music, and art. Our award-winning bar team is led by bar manager Jeff Boley.

The Townsend’s performance space features exceptional acoustics, thanks to co-owner/investor Scott Samson, an acoustician. The Townsend’s owner-investor team also includes Kathy Valentine, who helps direct the music program, Suzanne Deal Booth, who helps direct the arts program, as well as Roger and Meghan Sandau, Stacey Sher, and Kerry Brown. The Townsend is managed by Penumbral Strategic Ventures, LLC.
