Text description provided by the architects. Named for the business owners, Icenhauer’s is located in the up and coming Rainey Street bar district of Austin. The site originally contained a house built in 1893, of which the front two rooms complete with original wood interior siding were saved and restored as a part of this new cocktail lounge.

The existing house was maintained and modernized with ebony stained cedar siding, stone masonry and renovated lap siding. The interior exhibits varying colors of wood combined restored wood thresholds, stone and glass to create intimate seating areas filled with colorful upholstered furniture.

The front and back yards are anchored by covered porches and surrounded by warmly lit native landscaping and casual seating.
