Neighborhood & Lifestyle
A melting pot of vibrant originality entangled with an artistic energy that seems to be the root of keeping Austin weird. East Austin is just north of lady bird lake and is very proud of its eclectic neighborhoods and the fondness of maintaining the organic laid back vibe. Some people may deem East Austin as the hipster capital of Texas, and in fact, it has been ranked among the top ten most hipster places by Forbes, but most Austinites prefer to drop all the labels and embrace everything wonderful that lines the city streets. We embrace and respect the heritage of the neighborhoods, and believe in not only supporting local business but preserving it as well.
Shopping & Lifestyle
North of Ladybird Lake you can sense the buzz in the air from all the coffee shops, artistic outlets, and food trucks around every corner. You can also easily access Lady Bird Lake for a spot of fishing or visit some of the local art galleries dotting the neighborhood and appreciate the talents. One thing about East Austin is clear: it supports diverse lifestyles fully. If you are looking for weird, or want to add to this mix, you’ll fit right at home!
Dining & Drinking
Not the place to order a Vanilla Vodka Redbull. The East Side Austin instead is home to a wide assortment of craft beer. Maybe it is because the beer compliments all the BBQ so perfectly. Speaking of barbecue, here you will find some of Texas’s best barbecue. The Franklin’s Barbecue is a worthy and famous option.
Whether you are on the search for a $3 Lone Star, a craft beer probably curated within the neighborhood, or you are longing to stumble upon a perfectly crafted prohibition-like cocktail, there will be something for you. All you have to do is pop into one of the bars or restaurants such as Ah Sing Den, (formerly The Eastside Showroom) or Stay Gold and see what adventure awaits!
Apartments and Accessibility
The Upper East Austin area offers an extraordinary lifestyle. You will never be in lack of things to do and neither will you regret the accommodations. The apartments are some of the most trendsetting in the city and have great amenities not to mention, accessible to bars, shopping, and restaurants. Here, you are allowed to be as quirky or weird as you want and enjoy various pursuits switching from the artsy connoisseur, the beer enthusiast, the nature lover, and the fun-loving night owl. You can do this with relative ease and discover things about yourself that you may never find elsewhere. All this because you join a community of free-spirited and friendly individuals!
