Guide to Southtown

Reputation: San Antonio’s funky, yet fun, neighborhood. Main Drag: South Alamo Street. Lowdown: San Antonio’s King William District, a part of Southtown, wears many hats; old, new and hip are just a few of them. It began as an elegant residential area in the late 1800’s, then it was ignored and allowed to decay, then it became Texas’ first Historic Neighborhood District in 1967. In recent years, the King William Historic District has seen an influx of new business owners who are bringing galleries, restaurants and museums, and urban types who are into refurbishing the historical homes. Now a more hip and unique destination for locals, King William/Southtown art galleries, boutiques and restaurants play host to a fun (and exceedingly popular), bohemian monthly evening event known as (and hosted on the) First Friday. Hotspots: Blue Star Brewing Company, Rosario’s, La Tuna. More
