ROB PATE

Owner of Péché and Isla

With a vast background in cocktail knowledge, Pate opened Péché in 2008, featuring classic cocktails and French fare. Always one to spot just what is missing in a city, Pate saw a need for a tiki bar in Austin. So in March 2015, he opened the island-inspired restaurant and rum bar, Isla, conveniently located next door to Péché.
