Wright Bros is a bar in East Austin where you can get an equally-excellent cold brew or IPA - but we predict you’ll stick around long enough to have time for both. There’s free wifi, a wraparound porch, and lots of space, so post up here when you need to get some work done on a weekend or for a group hang. The industrial setting is cool enough that it would work for a low-key date too. Just know that the food options are minimal.
