Knomad’s story began decades ago when founder Miguel Jimenez first dreamed of creating a comfortable and lively lounge in his neighborhood. Being a world traveler and appreciating the many cultures he’s visited; Miguel dreamed of a place where all travellers, from every corner of the globe, could feel welcome. After months of acquiring permissions and permits; work finally began on the space that would become Knomad. It’s hard to believe this wonderful little oasis. tucked in the heart of the Mueller-Windsor Park neighborhood, started as a dreary office space in a little shopping strip. It took a lot of sweat and persistence by Miguel and his partners to get Knomad up and running.

Their hard work paid off. Just one year after opening, Knomad claimed The Austin Chronicle’s ‘BEST Neighborhood Bar’ Award [citation]; a distinction some bars wait years to attain. The next year, Knomad won again; tying with Rio Rita for Best Bar Staff  [citation]. Knomad continues to provide our customers with a refreshing break from the rat race.

Wherever you’re from, Knomad is a place for all those weary travellers out there, to come in and take a load off. From our Signature Knomad Bloody Mary, to our Sunday Brunch, or the variety of live music acts playing weekly; Knomad is the perfect spot to come, relax and avoid the hassle of Downtown.
