Sean Mack's ATX Adventures: The Mardi Gras Pop Up

Bringing the French Quarter to Texas!

February 26, 2019

Mardi Gras is right around the corner, so we only have a few more nights to let the good times roll before getting back to being on our best behavior.  If you can't make a road trip down to New Orleans, there's a new pop-up bar in Austin celebrating all things Mardi Gras!

We went to Craftsman on the east side over the weekend to check out the scene.  The bar has been completely redecorated with lots of Mardi Gras colors and, yes, lots of beads. 

They also have a special drink menu with lots of Nola signatures, including hurricanes(spoiler, they're good) and hand grenades!

The night we were there, we got to catch a show from the Boss Street Brass Band-if you closed your eyes, you'd think you were on Bourbon Street!  The pop up runs until March 5th.
