Locally owned businesses in the IBIZ Districts create the culture and vibe that makes Austin, Austin. Each District is special in its own way, with a common thread of renowned dining, shopping, services, music and nightlife scenes. Created by the non-profit Austin Independent Business Alliance in 2004, the nationally recognized, award-winning IBIZ Districts program supports and promotes neighborhood business districts throughout Austin where 75% of the businesses are locally owned. Whether you’re looking for local art, vintage finds, watering holes, familiar faces, or exploring new treasures – IBIZ Districts are Austin’s favorite destinations!
We’re growing with Austin! New Districts forming in 2017:
