The Bar 96 Story
Bar 96 opened its doors in late 2010 for a sports-friendly and relaxed environment for all to enjoy. It is Bridget Dunlap's third bar in Austin, following Lustre Pearl and Clive. Bar 96 is a great success but not the last success for Dunlap. Container Bar will open in fall of 2012.
HISTORY OF RAINEY STREET
The Rainey Street Historic District is a street of historic homes, many of the bungalow style, in downtown Austin, Texas. Rainey Street is positioned near Lady Bird Lake and Interstate 35 in the southeast corner of downtown. Though 21 buildings are specifically identified as a part of the historic district, the stretch of Rainey between Red River and Driskill includes 31 buildings built before 1934, giving the neighborhood a historic character relative to other areas of the city.
Most of the homeowners asked the city for a zoning change back in 2005 and got it. Rainey went from single family to Central Business District.
