New Downtown Hotspots to Check out with Options!

There are some great new venues that have either just opened up or are about to open their doors around Central Austin, and there a plenty of options for getting there without the hassle of parking or traffic! They also offer a great way to spend some time downtown while you wait for rush hour traffic to abate before heading home. 

Fareground is Austin’s first food hall. Opening on January 18 at 111 Congress, Faregound will include six Austin food vendors and outdoor park space. Check it out via B-cycle, Capital Metro, your own bike, or on foot if you work nearby.

The new Central Library is on West Cesar Chavez Street, and features six floors of reading porches, meeting areas, a tech petting zoo, rooftop garden, gallery space, and of course lots and lots of books. With bus stops adjacent to the library and a connection to the Lance Armstrong Bikeway and the Butler Hike and Bike Trail, it’s easy to get there without driving. The library will also have a bike corral, planned to open soon, so you can park your bike.
