“The Real World: Austin” Warehouse To Become Restaurant

If you were thinking of renting out the “Real World: Austin” house on 301 San Jacinto, you may be disappointed to learn that owner Will Houston has decided to lease the warehouse to a Mexican restaurant (Rio Grande–started by Texas natives in Colorado, where all the great Mexican joints are from) and a presentation graphics store (owned by Austin-based Thomas Reprographics).

Despite the possibility of renting out the “Real World” living space for thousands a night (as RW producer Ted Kenney said San Diego and Philadelphia are doing), Houston told the Daily Texan he decided against the idea because, “We’re not in the hotel business here.”

If you are still longing to bring back that “Real World” feeling, you might want to go visit the new home of the Art Deco “Austin” sign at Blackmail on South Congress.
