This urban area also has your basics like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, dry cleaners, and dog groomers. Live in energetic downtown and be on the cutting edge of what’s happening in the heart of Austin.
As the shopping mecca of downtown Austin, 2nd Street District is densely packed with tons of retail shops and restaurants, and also boasts classic Austin entertainment venues like Violet Crown Theater and ACL Live at the Moody Theater.
One of the fastest growing residential areas in downtown Austin with exciting new developments such as Seaholm Residences and The Independent, it truly is “the new center of downtown living.”
These historic streets don’t shy away from keeping Austin weird. This area includes notorious Dirty Sixth, unique venues for live music, and great Austin restaurants like Moonshine and Easy Tiger.
This combined district includes both the chic stretch of Congress Ave. that spans south from the Capitol building, as well as the grittier Warehouse district, full of grungy dive bars and music venues.
There’s no better place for a Sunday Funday than at Rainey Street’s funky bars with outdoor patios and live music such as Container Bar and Icenhauer’s. Rainey Street is a must-see when in Austin; there’s nothing else like it.
