Malaga Tapas & Bar was a restaurant born from the passions and whimsy of Austin native, Greg Schnurr. After sixteen inspired years, it is with great pride and resolution that he announces the closing of the restaurant, understanding the legacy of great culinary culture he is leaving behind. A legacy rooted in fine cuisine, good people, and a laid-back atmosphere harkening back to Old World Spain.
After helping to pioneer Austin's thriving foodie culture as an owner and or investor of some of the most memorable establishments in the downtown area (Cedar Street Courtyard, Good Eats Cafe, Bertram's, Saba Blue Water Cafe, Moonshine Patio Bar & Grille, Péché), Greg opened Malaga in Austin's famed Warehouse District. Once a booming demand outgrew the limited kitchen space, Malaga moved locations to its current home on W. 2nd Street. Increasing in square footage, Malaga continued to serve appetizing Spanish tapas plates and authentic wine in a relaxed but austere atmosphere.
In a growing city filled with the entrepreneurial spirits of new private business owners, an abundance of new concepts are gracing Austin's vibrant culinary scene. Malaga is proud to have been at the forefront of such proven and popular culinary traditions, earning its title as Austin's original Spanish tapas bar. Thank you Austin for all your support over the years.
