Elephant Room overview:

Since 1991 Elephant Room have been serving up the best beers from around the world along with no-nonsense top-shelf drinks and of course, Live Local Jazz. A rarity in a geographic region that is largely limestone bedrock, this basement of the historic Swift Building in downtown Austin had been vacated after being used as a "holding tank" for the development nextdoor. When the developer began digging out the earth to create the parking garage of their high rise bank building, they struck what is now known to be the largest archeological discovery of mastodon bones west of the Mississippi. Those bones had just been sent to Dell Children's Museum leaving the perfect space for what is now the iconic Elephant Room.

Elephant Room didn't open as a tourist trap so don't expect any of those trappings. "They open the door, they serve the people good drink and good music. If they don't come, we shut the door." That's Elephant Room proud business model and they're stickin' with it! Their bartenders are friendly, their waitstaff efficient, but they don't put up with non-sense so don't bring any.

If you're coming in for the music, grab a table close to the stage you won't wanna miss a thing. If you're coming in to meet up with friends take a seat toward the front door. You'll still hear the great music but you'll be able to hear yourselves and not disturb the listeners. They appreciate all who come! Thank you for your patronage!

For over 26 years the Elephant Room has remained one of the best Jazz Venues in Austin. Named top 10 Jazz Venue in the nation by Senate Bill Resolution and top 100 in the world by Down Beat Magazine. Come see Big Bands to local heroes in our unique basement space in the historical Swift Building. Must be 21.
