Airport builds Heart of Austin

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Traveling Austinites and visitors to the city will soon have a new space in the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in which to pass the time while enjoying live music and a drink, meal or snack. The performance area across from Gate 10 is getting a new stage, bleachers and game tables. The airport is calling the 4,456-square-foot space the Heart of Austin, and in addition to live music it will boast concession options including Jo’s coffee, the Saxon Pub and a taco truck. The renovations are set to begin in the middle of July. In the meantime, travelers can find live music at other venues in the airport such as Annie’s Cafe and Bar near Gate 18 and Earl Campbell’s Sports Bar and Waterloo Records near Gate 15.
