East Austin

Other Austin neighborhoods simply can’t match East Austin’s current speed of growth. Similar to places like Williamsburg in New York City or Echo Park in Los Angeles, young adults have started to make this area of the city their own urban paradise, complete with bars, restaurants, boutiques, and yoga studios galore.

If the prevalence of man-buns and tattoo sleeves doesn’t clue you in, this area plays a major role in Austin’s live music scene, with everything from indie rock to honky-tonk jams blaring through the doors of neighborhood venues on a nightly basis. Not to mention the number of innovative restaurants that have set down roots here, from Texas-takes on Japanese cuisine (brisket ramen, anyone?) to duck confit tacos, East Austin’s reputation for blending fine-dining with a laid-back, casual atmosphere manifests in these creative spaces.
