Exploring Rainey Street: Austin’s newest entertainment destination


Within the past two years the historic Rainey Street District, located in the southeast corner of Downtown Austin, has transformed from a quiet street lined with old bungalows to a hip entertainment district buzzing with activity.  An alternative to 6th Street bars and restaurants, Rainey Street offers a variety bars with a laid back attitude and just the right amount of Austin “cool.”

Popular Rainey Street bars Lustre Pearl, Bar 96, Clive Bar, and Icenhauer's have each been converted from older homes, some dating all the way back to 1907.  Each bar has a unique feel and lots of character.  Details such as wood flooring, spacious backyard patios, comfy couches and fireplaces will make you feel at home.

Rainey Street is also a great place to try great food.  El Naranjo, a food trailer located at 85 Rainey Street, serves up traditional Mexican food from the Oaxaca region, including molotes, tacos fritos, empanadas, and mole.  Bomb Tacos, whose trailer is located at Lustre Pearl, serves delicious Mexican and American fare from tacos with pineapple salsa to nachos and philly cheesesteaks.  Best of all, they deliver right to your table!

If you’re looking for an alternative to the hustle-and-bustle of downtown Austin bars and restaurants, check out the Rainey Street district.  It is conveniently located near downtown landmarks such as the Austin Convention Center and Lady Bird Lake, as well as hip downtown lofts, neighborhoods, and downtown Austin homes.
