Historic buildings and homes, dating back to the time when this area was claimed for the French Ligation Museum add to the charm and rich culture of Robertson Hill. East of Downtown Austin between 7th street and 19th streets with Chicon on it’s eastern border, Robertson Hill is part of a treasure trove of neighborhoods that form Urban East Austin. No commute to downtown and North/South IH 35 access allow for direct pathways to other areas of Austin. West Running 6th Street and East Bound 5th Street (these are one-way streets) also take you directly to and from Mopac and west Austin
Families of all shapes and sizes find plenty of recreational activities in nearby Kealing Park & Pool. Smaller parks such as Lott Park and Swede Hill offer picnic areas, room to toss a Frisbee and nature walk venues for a quick midday break. AS far as home spaces and residents - anything goes in Robertson Hill! Apartment homes, condos, and single family homes coexist side by side in this little metropolis. Looked for mixed use properties in this area and enjoy the urban atmosphere.
Bydee; Proarts Collective; East End Craft Gallery;Oscar Gallery: the proximity of these galleries along 11th Street and Rosewood make for an educational and culturally relevant tour of local arts. Food, food food from all over the world can be found in and around Robertson Hill. Gene’s New Orleans Style Food strives to provide mouth-watering Louisiana fare and get YOU to come back for seconds! Don’t miss Eastside Pies, huge pizzas served for lunch and dinner, a local culinary experience featured in the April 2008 edition of Texas Monthly.
Kickback for a drink with fellow ‘hipsters’ (depending on the night of the week) at the Longbranch Inn. Be ready to enjoy a true Austin experience as this place is owned and run by a lifetime Austinite; the bartenders serve up drinks but not necessarily with a smile - no food, but there’s a patio to chill out on after a late night of noise. Want more ruckus with your drinks? Saunter over the 6th Street Entertainment District and rock the night away at Stubb’s BarbeQue - there IS food here and you will leave happy and full of World Famous Texas Bar B Que and a little bit of what makes Austin the live Music Capitol of the World!
