Horseshoe Lounge closing, announces new location

Iconic bar to reopen on Riverside

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Horseshoe Lounge, a staple on South Lamar for 50 years, announced last year that they would close and move to a new location this summer.

This weekend is their last at their original location, and the bar will close at 2 a.m. on Monday.

But owners also announced their new location. The new “Shoe” will be just east of South Congress at 153 E. Riverside Dr.

The new location is bigger and will have more parking, with more than 100 spaces. Employees say the new location actually looks a lot like the the old bar and will also offer liquor and accept credit cards, something regulars at the old location know were not options.

The new location hopes to be open in August or September. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
