Welcome to Austin’s famed South Congress! South Congress, or “SoCo” as we locals like to call it, refers to a neighborhood in Austin’s South Congress Avenue famous for its many eclectic shops, restaurants, music and art venues, and food trucks. SoCo embodies Austin’s original style and vibe and is a popular spot for both locals and tourists. Enjoy stunning skyline views of the State Capitol and downtown cityscape as you head north on SoCo. When you walk down South Congress, you’ll find vintage and handmade shops to indulge in. You will also find the iconic Willie Nelson and “i love you so much” wall art. If live music is what you’re looking for, you can hear music playing as you stroll past street performers. When it’s time to grab a bite to eat, SoCo does not disappoint! We’ve got everything from bustling food trucks to upscale sit-down restaurants. Here in SoCo, you’ll also find Hopdoddy’s original location. SoCo is where it started and years later, we’re still serving locals and tourists on Austin’s famed South Congress Avenue.
