History, art, local flavor, and charming living quarters are just some of the perks of living in King William and Southtown San Antonio. Don’t be fooled by the elegant tree-lined streets and sprawling historical mansions, either—this quirky neighborhood is full of fun and hip places to eat, drink, shop, and live. Renting an apartment here will put you in the epicenter of San Antonio’s flourishing art community and a short walk to top-notch eateries and watering holes.


You can’t talk about Southtown/King William without mentioning the Blue Star Arts Complex. This former warehouse has been transformed into a multi-use community center jam-packed with art spaces of all kinds, with the crown jewel being the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum. It also plays host to a number of trendy entertainment options—pay a visit to top-rated restaurants, bars, and shops, or see what’s on draft at the Blue Star Brewing Company. You can also take part in the city’s original art walks on the “First Friday” and “Second Saturday” of each month.

Rivaling Southtown’s thriving art scene is its incredible food scene. Start off your morning ritual with a cup of joe at Poetic Republic Coffee, grab lunch at the popular Mexican-American fusion restaurant Burgerteca, and cap off your evening with cocktails from the intimate Amor Eterno.


If you want to find a home in this popular side of town, we recommend getting in quickly. Real estate is on the steady up-and-up in these neighborhoods, which means rental costs around here are also on the rise.
