Signs of Austin

We took a trip to Austin, Texas, to visit someone very special, and of course I took a few photos. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know that I’m drawn to vintage signs. Austin has some good ones, new as well as vintage. . . .

Guero's

Don-Mar

This place no longer exists, but the sign remains.

Toulouse

Austin is the live music capital of the U.S., so there are a lot of clubs where you can hear great music, especially blues. Many of them are located on Sixth Street.

Soho Lounge

Bat Bar

The sign isn’t vintage, but I liked the graphics. The bar, however, is very old.

Ritz

The Ritz was the first theater in Austin to be built specifically for “talkies” (movies with sound). It’s now the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, where they serve food and show older films.

Continental

The Continental Club has been called a “high class dive bar.” From the looks of the place, the name fits. Love the sign.

Hope you all had a great weekend. . . .
