Radio Coffee & Beer has announced its opening date for the much anticipated second location, Radio/East, at 3504 Montopolis Drive, for Wednesday, October 18. The new location has a two-acre footprint, providing more space for expanded food and drink offerings, live music and more parking.

Jack and his father, Greg Wilson, Radio Coffee & Beer founders, have two new partners, Rick Pierik (owner of Nine Mile Records) and Managing Partner Trey Hudson for the Montopolis location. Their shared vision for Radio is “to provide a welcoming place for the Austin community to drink, eat, and hear the best music,” said Jack Wilson. They will continue to honor the unique qualities of the original location in South Austin, offering premium coffee, a full bar, food truck vendors, live music, and community events.

In addition to their full bar service, they have eight craft beer options on draft, an extensive selection of wine and four rotating craft cocktails.
