About the venue: The Dogwood is a "homegrown" concept with a small touch of southern hospitality. Being from the south, as well as the Dogwood being our grandmother's favorite tree, we figured the iconic tree would be a perfect logo to showcase our "outdoor entertaining" concept throughout the bar. Natural stone and wood run throughout the spacious interior and brings you through floor to ceiling walk-throughs into gorgeous open air patios. The overall concept brings you to that back-home feeling among family and friends.

Venue Address: 715 West 6th Street, Austin, TX 78701
