Warehouse District, Austin
Concierge.com's insider take:
Sixth Street continues to skew younger and bawdier, so festive adults who aren't necessarily in the mood to paaaartay!! are heading to the Warehouse District instead. You can pick your poison from the growing multitude of pubs and restaurants: beer and a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (512-476-1320; www.originalalamo.com); a porterhouse and single-malt scotch at Sullivan's (512-495-6504; www.sullivansteakhouse.com/austin); or a top-shelf martini under the stars at Cedar Street Courtyard (512-495-9669; www.cedarstreetaustin.com). The district starts a block west of Congress Avenue between Third and Sixth streets.
