During your stay at Hotel Indigo Austin Downtown-University, enjoy our close proximity to a plethora of tempting barbecue joints, live music venues, and must-see attractions. University of Texas, the Texas State Capital, and Whole Foods headquarters, are all nearby. Austin’s rich German heritage still resonates in the city’s numerous Biergartens, where community members and visitors alike come to celebrate at festivities such as Austin City Limits and SXSW. Our neighborhood’s reputation as a music-centric hub is well justified by frequent appearances from both promising new stars and firmly established artists.

Austin’s restaurant scene is as lively as its music scene. Many of the Downtown Austin restaurants feature live music and entertainment, and just as there is a sound to please every ear, there is a taste to please every palate in Austin’s Downtown dining establishments. Outdoor seating is a popular way to enjoy both a great meal with friends and your dog too! Stroll our neighborhoods and discover everything from fresh curb-side far and casual alfresco dining to elegant candlelit five-star cuisine. Austin is renowned for our mouth-watering bbq, but we have restaurants offering outstanding vegetarian and vegan menus as well. You don’t even have to leave the hotel to experience scrumptious, local fare. Be sure not to miss our own Red River Tavern Bar & Kitchen, which is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
