What You'll See

Friday Night Fun
For a fun night of bar-hopping, look no further than the trendy stretch of establishments on North Loop between Guadalupe and Avenue F. If you'd rather grab a pick-me-up, local favorite Epoch Coffee serves up delicious beverages and unique pastries 24/7. Fans of the arts should see what's happening at the Marchesa Hall and Theater to the northeast. The Marchesa regularly hosts events including film festivals, art shows, nationally touring bands, the holiday favorite Blue Genie Art Bazaar, and even Austin's annual indie comic book convention, STAPLE!
The Perfect Sunday
While Northfield doesn't have much in the way of tourist attractions, residents and their visitors can enjoy spending a lazy afternoon walking around the neighborhood parks and shopping centers. Of special note, this part of Lamar is a bibliophile's paradise: the enormous Half Price Books sports a respectable rare books section, while Austin Books & Comics has been recognized as one of the best comic book shops in the country. Out-of-towners may get a special kick out of the large parrot colony that makes its home by the UT Intramural fields.
