East Austin

Funky, Artsy, and Full of Character

Welcome to East Austin

The vibrant and diverse East Austin neighborhood is the perfect choice for homebuyers looking for character beyond the high-rises of downtown. East of I-35, East Austin’s historic neighborhoods have their own unique flair. From the preserved Victorian homes in Holly, to the colorful murals and Latino influences around East Cesar Chavez, East Austin invites exploration off the beaten downtown path.

East 6th Street serves as a laidback counterpart to crowded West 6th downtown:

  • Spend an afternoon brewery hopping to Austin Beerworks, Lazarus Brewing, or Hops and Grain.
  • Catch some tunes at The White Horse, one of Austin’s top honky tonks.
  • Don’t miss the splashes of street art between eclectic shops and food trucks.

The East 6th area transitions into the Saltillo District, a reinvented warehouse zone with restaurants, bars, and locally-owned shops. Must-try eateries include Tamale House East, known for its handmade masa and authentic salsas. Grab a coffee at Texas Coffee Traders in the morning and a drink at Uptown Sports Club in the evening.

South of 6th Street, stroll Cesar Chavez Street to peruse the local eateries, bakeries, and food carts. Nearby, the Victorian homes of the Holly neighborhood are interspersed with community murals depicting Chicano culture. East Austin is also home to the city’s African American cultural gems. Don’t miss the George Washington Carver Museum dedicated to African American Texans.

East Austin is a quickly developing area with older homes being renovated and larger residential projects revitalizing former industrial zones. Some worry about gentrification displacing historic residents, so change is a complex issue. 

Living in East Austin means embracing the creative, the funky, and the unexpected. Murals, taco trucks, craft breweries, and more distinguish East Austin’s artistic culture. Residents can enjoy a slower pace but still be minutes from downtown’s energy. For homebuyers seeking community roots coupled with urban appeal, East Austin delivers.
