A Hipster Haven with Hispanic Roots
While downtown San Antonio is well known among travelers, with attractions like the Riverwalk and the Alamo, just south of it is Southtown which combines the city’s Hispanic culture with the energy of a new generation of artists and young professionals drawn to the historic area. The city’s culture is especially vibrant in Southtown at favorite restaurants like Oloroso and Rosario’s Mexican Restaurant (their fajitas are seen here), both on South Alamo. The many galleries in the neighborhood range from ones specializing in Mexican art, like the San Angel Folk Art Gallery, and contemporary ones, like the appropriately named Blue Star Contemporary within the Blue Star Arts Complex. Both are found on Blue Star Street, which is of historical importance for its late 19th and early 20th-century warehouses and railway architecture.
