Heads Up!

Prohibition Creamery is closing! This cool bungalow in East Austin serves up alcoholic ice cream and crafty cocktails. They’ve even added CBD ice cream to the menu, but regular kid-friendly ice cream is available as well! We’re very bummed that this cool spot won’t be around to carry us through 2021. Don’t miss your last chance to treat yourself here– January 17 will be the last day that Prohibition Creamery is open for business. Dine-in (indoors and patio seating) and takeout are both available!
