Although it maintains a laid-back vibe, Downtown Austin doesn’t slow down. By day, well-dressed business folk walk with a purpose between its capitol building, towering condominium complexes, and sophisticated banks. As the sun sets, new energy emanates from Downtown’s countless bars, clubs, and music venues as live bands turn up their amps along 6th Street. Galleries, boutiques, and record stores round out this neighborhood’s harmonious repertoire. The only perk missing in Downtown? Available parking spaces.See 265 places to stay Save this neighborhood
