Found between 7th and 12th Streets along Red River Street, the Red River Cultural District provides residents and visitors with ample opportunities to experience live music in the Live Music Capital of the World. Live music venues, restaurants, cultural organizations, hotels, and additional establishments are all part of the activity taking place in this vibrant downtown district.
Hot Summer Nights is a product of area venues and restaurants goal of strengthening the district’s identity and addressing the challenges in the area. RRCD businesses and organizations joined the Soul-y Austin program in 2015 and in early 2016, the Red River Merchants Association successfully formed and has since been active in engaging stakeholders and government officials as they focus on improving the district’s conditions to create a more pedestrian friendly experience that attracts patrons. The association’s boundaries run from the 600 block to the 1200 block of Red River.
