Welcome to the heart of Austin!

Austin IBIZ Districts are neighborhood clusters of locally-owned businesses.

Locally-owned businesses in the IBIZ Districts create the culture and vibe that make Austin the fun, quirky place it is. Each District has its own special flavor, a unique personality that shines through, with a common thread of renowned dining, shopping, services, music and nightlife. Created by the non-profit Austin Independent Business Alliance in 2004, the nationally-recognized, award-winning IBIZ Districts Program supports and promotes neighborhood business districts throughout Austin, in areas where 75% or more of the businesses are locally-owned. Whether you’re looking for local art, vintage finds, watering holes, familiar faces, or exploring new treasures – IBIZ Districts are the place to be!
