Austin is four days after 2021 and our first restaurant closure has already arrived. Prohibition Creamery, the juicy dessert shop in East Austin, will cease operations later this month.
“With a heavy heart and many tears, we decided to close in January when our lease expires,” said a statement from the store that opened on East Seventh Street in July 2016. The last day of operation is January 17th.
“I put my heart and soul into Prohibition Creamery and I was so delighted to see people enjoying our juicy creations, our craft cocktails and our little slice of East Austin. I love all of the people who made us their first meeting place, fell in love and helped create so many special memories, ”said Laura Aidan, founder of Prohibition Creamery.
Although his tenure at E. Seventh St. could end around 1407, Aidan says the ban will reopen in the future, although no specific details have been given.
For the past four and a half years, Prohibition Creamery has been a destination for juicy preparations and sweet treats, often in the same dish. Aidan, a student on Penn State’s famous ice cream course, conjured up a mix of seasonal and classic flavors, and the restaurant often hosted special pop-ups and partnerships.
Like most restaurants, Prohibition was forced to spin due to the pandemic and now operates take-out and delivery via third-party apps. In addition to the full menu, customers can order juicy ice cream party packs, sundae kits and cocktails by calling 512-992-1449 or online.
