Have you ever heard of the popular slogan, “Keep Austin Weird”? Then you’ve heard of south Austin. The eclectic area south of the Colorado River, notably the 78704 zip code, is home to many of Austin’s most iconic, funky restaurants, bars, and live music scenes. South Congress (SoCo) and South Lamar have helped shape the “Keep Austin Weird” mentality dating back to the 60s. Although now lined with upscale restaurants, boutique hotels and shops, the SoCo and South Lamar areas still maintain the laid-back, southern hippy vibe that Austin is known for.
