The East Side
The East Side optimizes “Keep Austin Weird.” This area runs parallel to downtown east of IH-35 stretching from East Cesar Chavez to E 7th Street. The East Side has undergone a lot of gentrification over the past few years filling the area with local art, music and eclectic food and drink options. You’ll find a young, hip crowd in this area that is rich in history and culture.
Tip: Most bars and restaurants are located on East 6th Street and East 7th Street.
