There’s also Lucille’s — a craft cocktail bar set in a charming, renovated house. Play outdoor games or simply sip on the patio.
 
Art and culture enthusiasts also love 70 Rainey for its proximity to several historic areas and museums. There's the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, which is dedicated to the preservation of Latino culture. You can also join the Tejano Walking Trail, a five-mile loop through the East Cesar Chavez and Holly neighborhoods. Learn about these historically Latinx neighborhoods while you enjoy the scenery of the area. 70 Rainey is truly in the heart of one of the most historically significant Austin neighborhoods.

Free-standing soaking tubs (in select residences) and top-of-the-line finishes complete each bathroom. Everything in these units is truly custom, and you’re sure to feel at home.
 


The Architecture


70 Rainey is stunning on the inside, but it’s also quite impressive architecturally. Designed by Page Architects, the building stands out as a beacon of high-rise luxury and class.
