Neighborhoods

Rainey Street is a very popular area in downtown Austin for drinks during the day and night. The entire street is full of bars and restaurants that have been converted from old houses. Some of my favorite spots are Bangers, Unbarlievable, Container Bar, and Bungalow, but there are plenty more to try on the street. The crowd on this street is typically young professionals and tourists. It is not as wild as sixth street but will be very busy any night of the week.

Sixth street in between Sabine Street and Congress Ave is one of the most famous and popular destinations in Austin for night life. The locals call it Dirty Six for its wild nightlife. It is a strip of local bars known for live music and dancing and is completely blocked off for car traffic on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays starting at 9PM. The crowd on this street varies but is typically younger adults and tourists. Be sure to check it out if you just walk the street and don't go into any bars, just watching the people on the street is entertaining alone! A good place to start if you want to do a little bar crawl is The Blind Pig. Other favorite spots are San Jac Saloon and The Library Bar, but they are all good on the street.

West sixth street is a great spot for drinks and food both day and night. The west sixth street area is known as the area that spans Sixth Street in Downtown from San Antonio Street to West Ave. On this street you will find great bars such as The Dogwood, The Rustic Tap, Buford's Beer Garden, Little Woodrow's, Concrete Cowboy, and more. The crowd on this street is typically a bit less touristy and more of an older 20's to mid 30's crowd. It is less rowdy than Dirty Six and Rainey Streets. There is also a great breakfast/brunch place called Walton's Fancy & Staple that is owned and operated by Sandra Bullock in this area. I have been multiple times and it never disappoints!

South Congress is a great spot both day and night. It is a street full of restaurants, bars, and shopping. The area considered South Congress is the area located on South Congress street that spans from Academy Drive to East Annie Street. Food: A great Italian food spot on this street is Vespaio. Good pizza in Texas is hard to come by, but More Home Slice Pizza is not bad. Joann's Fine Foods is also another hot spot as well as Gueros Taco Bar. Finish off the night with desert at the Austin's famous Amy's Ice Cream know for their weird flavors and combos of ice cream. Bars: The Continental Club is a good spot for some funky live music. Check out their website for who is playing. Austin's motel is a good spot as well. Other: Big Top Candy Store is a really cool old style candy shop. Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds is a very cool old school costume shop. It is something you do not see everyday. Stop is and grab some funny photos.
