The ownership group behind Star Bar, Gibson, Lavaca Street Bar and (most recently) Mean Eyed Cat is opening a bar in East Austin.
FBR Management, headed by Matt Luckie and Jeff Waughtal, will open the Wheel at 1902B E. MLK Blvd. later this year. The bicycle-themed bar will be the first in the neighborhood that will stay open until 2 .a.m., according to FBR. The Wheel, which will include a “bicycle service station,” will be open 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Friday and 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The Wheel will serve craft cocktails and a large selection of beers, and the neighboring Austin Daily Press will introduce a new menu for bar patrons.
