The East End IBIZ District, which runs along East 11th Street and Rosewood Avenue, combines a mix of rich cultural history with newer locally owned businesses, leading it to become one of Austin’s most attractive destinations. Hit the restaurant and bar patios here on languid summer evenings after delving into the Texas Music Museum, the Carver Museum, or the Historic Victory Grill. All host rotating programs that showcase the history of Austin.
Boutique shops, eateries, and entertainment venues line the District, inviting you to stroll and explore. A day in the District can include visiting the local wine shop for tastings that tantalize, catching live music, and the best BBQ in the nation (be prepared to wait with fellow enthusiasts). There are also renowned restaurants and specialty food trailers to choose from, with amazing outdoor art peppered throughout.
The East End IBIZ District makes it easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle with yoga and Pilates studios, holistic health practitioners, and healthy food from local farms. While you’re at it, pamper yourself with a new hairstyle, a rejuvenating facial, and a relaxing massage.
In bygone times, social segregation led many African Americans to East Austin neighborhoods, creating a self-sustaining enclave with strong cultural institutions, thriving commerce, two colleges, and a lively nightlife.
The East End IBIZ District remains true to its noble history as it embraces the new, making it a destination for visitors looking for a rare experience that reflects both past and present in one distinct area.
