Arts & Entertainment


If something big is happening in Austin, then chances are that you will find it at the Convention Center, the Palmer Events Center, or Zilker Park. No need to fight traffic and look for parking during ACL or SXSW, as these events, and more, come to your own backyard.


The The Contemporary Austin Jones Center on Congress and the Lora Reynolds Gallery downstairs are both popular downtown destinations.

Live Music

As the live music capital of the world, you won’t find a shortage of venues downtown. Many of Austins most popular venues, including Austin Music Hall and ACL Live are only a few steps away.


Experience a wide variety of theatre styles: Improv at The Hideout Theatre, musicals at ZACH Theatre, ballet at Ballet Austin, and Esther’s Follies, which has been described as a modern day vaudeville.


With the famous Alamo Drafthouse downtown, and Violet Crown Cinema only a few blocks away, going to see the movies has never been easier.
