History’s greatest writers inspire ACADEMIA

What do Ernest Hemingway, Hunter S. Thompson, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Dorothy Parker all have in common? Not only are they some of history’s greatest writers, but they also loved their drinks. Hemingway fancied a good Daiquiri (no, not strawberry), Thompson was a Wild Turkey man, Fitzgerald preferred his Gin Rickeys, and Parker was known to love a Whisky Sour. It begs the question: Are Creativity and indulgence inevitably intertwined? This is the question the new destination ACADEMIA, located in downtown Austin, will try and answer. Inspired by history’s greatest writers, and backed by the 2012 Night Club & Bar Bartender of the Year, Russell Davis, the new world class establishment will combine cocktails and setting that will inspire inevitable conversation. Janke has been working with the team of award-winning designers to help create the world-class experience set to open this Fall.
