Located near Downtown Austin, The University of Texas, and the Mueller Development, Manor Road stands as one of Austin’s most iconic and unique business districts. Manor Road offers its residents and visitors a diverse and unique selection of restaurants, bars, theater venues, outdoor patios, and retail stores; Manor Road businesses and services attract individuals and families for both daytime and nighttime activities. Since 2015, businesses along Manor Road have been participating in the Soul-y Austin program; in early 2016, the group formalized and successfully formed their district merchants association.
The Manor Road Merchants Association has sixteen members (16): Aztec Promotional Group, Clean Sweep, Dai Due, Dane’s Body Shop, Eastside Café, Haymaker Austin, Hoover’s Cooking, in.gredients, Nui Organics, Patrizi’s, Raven + Lily, Roscoe Properties, School House Pub, Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop, The VORTEX, and Unit-D Pizzeria. The Board of Directors, which includes members from in.gredients, Roscoe Properties, The VORTEX, and Unit-D Pizzeria, meet regularly and are continually seeking opportunities to create a vibrant, pedestrian and bike friendly district that becomes a destination for all.
In collaboration with the City of Austin and additional partners, the Manor Road Merchants Association is focusing on securing opportunities to improve the district including bike lane improvements, sidewalk connectivity, strengthening the district identity, and fostering a sense of community through district events.
Businesses involved in the initiative are focusing all of their efforts on attracting more businesses to join the association. If you are interested in joining the Manor Road Merchants Association, please contact Joshua Blaine, President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
