Take a little Kung-Fu-Saloon, a dash of Porter Ale House, a splash of Pleasant Storage Room topped with a tad of Highball, mix it up, and you have a pretty good idea of what of what Punch Bowl Social is about. Located in the Domain in North Austin, Punch Bowl Social has around 21,000 sq ft of space containing a traditional diner area, large bar, ping pong tables, shuffle board table, deck shuffleboard, foosball, darts, pool table, karaoke rooms and 8 bowling lanes.
Their food menu screams Gastropub with very intresting options. On my visit I went with the deviled eggs topped with bacon jam and baby arugula, as well as the street tacos with cocoa dusted pork, radish-cucumber pico, queso cotija and saffron rice.
Since punch is in their name I had to try one. This is the a single serving of the Bachelor’s Bowl made with bourbon, blackberry elderflower liqueur, mango black tea, lemon juice and simple syrup.
