“Where Texas warmth meets Austin cool”, the 2nd Street District area is composed of about six blocks filled with fifty specialty shops, restaurants, entertaining venues and services. With many unique boutiques and places to grab a quick eat, 2nd District is great for a tranquil stroll around the city.
Home to Austin City Limits, the longest-running music program in television history, 2nd Street’s Moody Theater hosts many well-known artists every year. The Moody Theater is a 2,700 person capacity music venue that holds 75-100 concerts a year, in addition to ACL. Outside the venue stands a statue of Willie Nelson, a long-time Austinite and a big influence of live-music in the city.
Some notable shops around the area include Luxe Apothetique, a trendy boutique and apothecary with a full service salon and spa; Sikara & Co., a modern fusion international jewelry store; and The Daily Juice, an organic and delicious juice bar with various raw dishes and health foods.
