Craft kitchen, microbrewery, shaded beer garden, live music and a private wine cellar? Sounds sort of like all the things dreams made of, right? Good news: It’s all coming to Round Rock in the form of Cork & Barrel, a concept new to the area.
The restaurant, Irish pub and microbrewery is currently under construction at 4000 East Palm Valley Boulevard and set to open sometime in the fall of this year.
Founder Sam Darlington, native son of Belfast, Ireland and local Texan resident for the past 30 years, envisions Cork and Barrel as the “perfect blend of an Irish Pub experience and Central Texan cuisine.”
According to the restaurant’s website, the space will be the “ideal setting to meet up, wine and dine, drink a pint, enjoy live music, or watch a favorite sports team on one of the 12 indoor and outdoor TVs.”
