BYOB restaurants

Hey I work for a company that deals with wine importation/distribution. We are training new sales reps and have an orientation for them on Tuesday of next week. We would like to be able to take them to lunch after the orientation and have them taste our wines while eating.

What restaurants in Austin are BYOB? Would prefer to know mainly more north-ish Austin places but any and all suggestions would be welcome.

  1. Two I know of are Maru on Burnet and Madam Maam's (campus and south by Central Market)

    1. I saw some people apparently in the wine business opening, sharing, and tasting several bottles of wine they had brought in to Chez Nous, downtown; don't know if they got special permission, since Chez Nous serves its own wine, or not.

      1. in general most places will let you bring in your own wine, with the caveat that they don't carry or have that same wine on their list. if you are planning on bringing a number of bottles i would call first, where ever you happen to go.

        1. Ming's Cafe on the strip has no liquor license last I heard and allow byob.

          1. I think most any restaurant will allow you to bring in your own bottle or even bottles, but they do charge a "corking fee." $5-20 per, I think.
