Visit The Whisper Room

Inspired by the Prohibition Era, The Whisper Room is tucked away in a private corner of Stephen F.’s Bar & Restaurant on the second floor of the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin hotel on Congress Avenue, which opened in 1924.

Situated behind a red velvet curtain, this 1920s-themed bar serves a cocktail menu developed by acclaimed local mixologist Justin Elliott , featuring modern takes on tried-and-true classics like the Old Fashioned and Sazerac, and many more. Each drink is made tableside on a 1930s Aldo Tura bar cart.

Our larger beverage menu features an extensive list of whiskeys from Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ireland, and Canada.

Executive Chef Brian Gibson also developed an exclusive menu of bar snacks for guests in The Whisper Room, such as Roasted Garlic Charred Olives, Guajillo Hominy Crisps, Shrimp and Chorizo Arancini, and Bacon Wrapped Figs. 

The Whisper Room includes a private patio for enjoying a selection of curated cigars.
