Donn’s Deport – April Social

Please join us at Donn’s Depot for our April social to meet guests and get to know fellow members better.
The bar started as McNeil Depot in 1972. The main structure is an actual train depot that was part of the MoPac railroad line. Adelman says the bar’s original owner bought the wooden depot and hauled it to Austin, and a year later added the rail cars that make up a seating area and the women’s restroom.
McNeil Depot had the second mixed drink license in Travis County. Donn Adelman was a regular musician at the bar when it opened, and six years later, he took over the bar, renaming it Donn’s Depot.
