    The Victory Grill, a historic music venue and restaurant in Austin. Johnny Holmes opened the establishment in 1945 after he realized that black soldiers returning from World War II did not have a place to grab a drink and celebrate. As part of the Chitlin' Circuit—a group of performance venues that were open to and safe for black performers—the Victory Grill hosted a number of famous musicians, including Bobby Bland, B.B. King, Ike and Tina Turner, James Brown, Chuck Berry and Etta James. The venue joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
