Austin retailer opens bike-themed bar

Published March 6, 2015

AUSTIN, Texas (BRAIN) — Longtime bike retailer Jack Murray, owner of Jack & Adam’s Bicycles, recently opened his second bar in Austin. Murray partnered with Matt Luckie, Anggay Tenney and Max Moreland — who own Austin watering holes Mean Eyed Cat, Lavaca Street Bar and Gibson Street Bar — to open The Wheel in late February. Murray is also part-owner of Gibson Street Bar.

Located on Austin’s East side, The Wheel serves craft beer and cocktails, including daily $4 whiskey specials, in a relaxed atmosphere. Customers can also work on their bike using repair stands and tools provided by The Wheel. The bar joins nearby sandwich shop Austin Daily Press and newly opened Juiceland. The Wheel owners said they hope the bar will become a post-ride and post-work hangout.

“Our hope is that The Wheel becomes a place where people will drop in for a cocktail on their way home from work or grab a sandwich from Austin Daily Press and pair it with a beer on our patio,” said co-owner Max Moreland. “We have been waiting for the perfect project on the east side that is warm and comfortable, and we love how friendly and accessible the neighborhood is.”


Cycling-inspired bar The Wheel opened in Austin last month.
