What? Why didn’t we know about this new Rainey St. bar called Javelina? Looks cool.

SNEAK PEAK: JAVELINA BAR

Tonight I stopped by for the soft opening of my good friend Craig’s new bar down on Rainey Street. So many talented people had a hand in this new space — the designers over at Arts & Recreation (aka Paul Fucik, Renee Fernandez and company) created the amazing signage and logos, Adam Young of Old Crow built all of the custom furniture and collaborated with Jay Gordon of Blackout Signs to create the custom barstools, and Jessica Skinner of Covert Curiosity and the Austinist is currently working on booking events at Javelina for SXSW.

The interior of the gutted historic house that is Javelina has that sparsely-decorated modern look that I really like. (Thanks to Wes Anderson, I will always love a mounted javelina head because of this scene.) They’ve also got a few Dolan Geiman pieces on the walls. And then there’s the framed photograph of Quanah Parker hanging over the bar… Craig says that Quanah is the patron badass of Javelina. Knowing that Quanah was a Comanche warrior from Texas with seven wives, I can get behind that. But I need more explanation. Preferably over beers.

The jukebox selection is competitive, though still under development. Right now they’ve got a lot of Priest, solid gold country, motown, and deep cut zydeco. You know I’m diggin’ on that. I’ve been told I may get to donate a cd… AHHH the pressure! I’ll be up for days thinking about this one.

So when will the bar really be open? Could be tomorrow or Thursday… but definitely by the weekend. Get out there and tell Craig I said hi!
