Michael L. Girard

Owner – Speakeasy, Terrace59, tenOak Bourbon House and Lounge, Imperia Asian Kitchen and Sushi Bar
Entrepreneur – Real Estate & Hospitality Industry
With over 20 years experience in the Food and Beverage industry in Austin, Texas, Michael L. Girard, President of Girard Diversified Interests, Inc., has become locally famous for turning start up operations into Texas-sized successes. His beginnings were on Sixth Street but over time Girard was the perfect match for what was about to come - the beginning of the hipper, more upscale Austin Warehouse District, where one goes to “see and be seen” – but blue jeans still apply.

Girard’s contributions to the area include the resurrection of the Congress Avenue hot spot Speakeasy, known for its rooftop skyline view at Terrace59 and sly alley way entrance, as well as the introduction of the hip bourbon house and lounge, TenOak. Girard opened Imperia in 2007 to resounding acclaim and it has become an established part of the Warehouse District dining scene.

Michael L. Girard has resided in Austin, TX for the last 25+ years and wouldn’t have it any other way.
