For those who work hard and play hard—we found five local spots offering an exceptional cup of coffee by day and a delightful libation by night.
This impressive local hangout offers standout coffee, plenty of natural light, and ample seating, which makes this downtown hot spot the perfect place for diligent workers to keep productive throughout the day. Contrary to Halcyon's daytime regulars are those who arrive at night for one of the coffee shop's signature cocktails—try the Long Island Iced Coffee, which has all the fixins, including a shot of espresso. 218 W. Fourth St., 512-472-9637
Boasting the perfect combination of modern décor and homey warmth, Patika shifts perfectly from daytime work hours to evening date nights. This South Lamar locale sources its beans from under-the-radar coffee suppliers, and offers nine different vinos, plus a large selection of beer. Come for the coffee, and stay for the drinks, which is all you need on their quaint outdoor patio. 2159 S. Lamar Blvd.
This East Side favorite follows a simple ethos: Provide high quality coffee and beer in one location. Offering roughly 38 rotating beers on tap, wine, and small bites, Wright Bros. Brew & Brew focuses on heralding local breweries and coffee roasters. Whether you're stopping by for a cup of Flat Truck Coffee or a pint of Austin Beerworks, there's something for every customer at all hours of the day. 500 San Marcos St., 512-493-0963
Cherrywood Coffeehouse promises a casual and welcoming environment to all passerby. By day, students and professionals can sip Fair Trade Ruta Maya Coffee, while night revelers, which range from families or friends, can indulge in premium beer, wine, and Champagne. Sit indoors or out on their back patio where live music or standup comedy await on any given night. 1400 E. 38 1/2 St., 512-538-1991
Known to turn off their Wi-Fi on nights to encourage social interactions and conversation among their customers, Radio Coffee & Bar isn't just a place to work and enjoy coffee from Stumptown Roasters. While daytime vibes are quiet and respectful, the evenings are lively thanks to their daily happy hours (5-9 p.m.), live music, and trivia nights. Plus, with 24 brews on taps and two food trucks parked outside, there's no reason to call it an early night when you're here. 4204 Manchaca Road
