Hello I'm Dom!

I moved to Austin 4 years ago from Florida and have been working in bars on the East Side ever since. I knew the Wheel first as my favorite post-work spot, and that eventually transitioned into it being my home bar. I love playing vinyl all day and the rotating cast of locals that come through here. Never a dull moment!

In my spare time I work on writing and recording music with my friends. I am a guitarist and a pedal collector. I mostly work on indie/psychedelic leaning stuff, but love to jam on anything!

Come through and say hello, we can nerd out...


Born and raised in west Texas, I started bartending at the age of 18 in a tiny shack in the middle of the desert. I’ve been fortunate enough to work everywhere from sports bars to high end clubs and 2 years ago I was welcome with open arms to The Wheel. I immediately fell in love. Cocktails, vinyl, great coworkers and the SWEETEST regulars a gal could ask for. If you haven’t a friend in the world, you’ll find one at The Wheel!
