Announcing the closing of  
Opal Divine's Penn Field
Austin, Texas - 12/12/2016
Announcing the closing of Opal Divine's Penn Field.
Opal Divine's Penn Field, the second location of the Opal Divine's group of restaurants, will be closing its doors at the end of the business day, December 31, 2016. Opal Divine's Penn Field opened on April 16, 2005. It was the first and only Opal Divine's to be designed from scratch, originally sketched out on a dinner napkin over drinks with the project's architect, Suzanne Rose.
The iconic Penn Field location was the largest of all the Opal Divine's locations and thus has a high rent and expense load. The restaurant/bar dynamic in South Austin has changed in the eleven plus years that this location has been open. Austin's "Keep Austin Weird" fascination is fading into a search for the latest and greatest new restaurant/bar/concept and the Parkers feel it is time to let this location pass on. Many thanks to our great customers and staff who have passed through our doors over the years.

Stop by Opal Divine's Penn Field at 3601 S. Congress Ave throughout the month of December to say goodbye to a South Austin original.
