Texas isn’t only about cowboy boots and cattle. Austin has its own unique brand of Texas. As the capital city, Austin has a vibrant downtown area. With the University of Texas’ highly rated sports, academics and research, Austin is also a college town. And what other city has the chutzpah—and the musicians—to proclaim itself the Live Music Capital of the World?
In 1991, Austin officially became the Live Music Capital of the World when it was determined that Austin has more live music venues per capita than any other U.S. city. There are around 200 active music venues operating in Austin today. Some of the iconic clubs that helped create the Austin music scene are the Continental Club, Hole in the Wall, Saxon Pub and Antone’s. Entertainers and show times can be found in the Austin-American Statesman entertainment section every Thursday.
Austin also has its own brand of Texas luxury real estate. If uber modern architecture with a sculpture garden is your idea of luxury, then Austin is absolutely your town. The luxury real estate properties in Austin are as eclectic as the city itself. The capital city is as much free-style music as it is highbrow culture. Austin is country and western at the Broken Spoke and La Traviata at the Austin Lyric Opera.
Our experienced real estate agents at Posh Properties are proud Austinites. We know and love this town, from running the trails along Town Lake to playing the PGA golf courses. We know that Austin is a place to not only raise a family, but also raise the stakes on defining luxury living.
