In South End, great shopping is just around the corner at places like University Bookstore and Bear Cotton. In your search for a new pad, go ahead and take a look at the apartments for rent in neighboring Oakwood.
Food, Libations and Recreation
Finding your bearings in a new place--locating groceries, cleaners and places to relax and have fun--is one of the most basic things all renters do when establishing themselves in a new area. To help in that process, one important street to know in South End is Speight Ave. It's here, in particular, that drinking, dining and recreation can be found. With our apartment finder tool settling for that "so-so" spot is not an option. Find what you want in South End without moving a muscle, and look forward to your next front door.
Have dinner and drinks out at Vitek's Bar-B-Q located on Speight Ave. For post-dinner refreshments, try a nearby watering hole, like Doves Dancing Bears. Run up a tab at Teri's Tavern, one of the local favorites. On top of that, easy and delicious grub can be ordered up at Ihop Restaurant and Burger King. Both restaurants are in the neighborhood.
Patrons and humble admirers of the arts would do well to observe the calendar of events at Theater Arts Dept.
The Yelp page will provide you with even more places to eat, drink and hang out in South End.
South End residents can shop multiple grocery stores to fill up on kitchen staples. Skinny's Convenience Stores and Speight Food Mart on Speight Ave. are just a couple of options in the area. Head to What About Cupcakes, a bakery on Speight Ave., or swing by Shipley Do-Nuts, which is also in the area, and warm up to delicious baked goods and tasty treats. Additionally, for household-name grocery stores, there's H-E-B Foods on Speight Ave.
Residents can take advantage of the many retailers in the South End area, including Baylor University Bookstore and Harts 'n Crafts.
