Everything You Need To Know About Hillside Farmacy Austin

Hillside Farmacy East Austin 

Hillside Farmacy Restaurant 

I consider my self an Austinite although I was not born and raised in Austin Texas. I've been here since 2000, and it quickly grew on me! When I first moved here from Mexico, I was ten years old and it was a culture shock as you can imagine. Austin has grown quickly and completely changed over the years I've been here, and I continue to get amazed by this city every single day! I have never had the time or interest in digging so much into the historical parts of Austin, but this week something changed. East eleventh street came to my mind after going to the most adorable brunch spot. East Austin has always been rich in Mexican-American culture, but I did not know how much African-American culture was engraved just east of IH 35, moreso on 11th and 12th street.

Me considero Austinite;¬†Aunque no nac√≠ y crec√≠ en Austin, Texas, he estado en Austin desde 2000.¬† Cuando me mud√© aqu√≠ por primera vez desde M√©xico, ten√≠a diez a√Īos y fue un shock cultural como se pueden imaginar. Austin ha crecido r√°pidamente y cambi√≥ por completo a lo largo de los a√Īos que he estado aqu√≠, y me sigo asombranda por esta ciudad todos los d√≠as!¬†Nunca he tenido el tiempo o inter√©s en las partes hist√≥ricas de Austin, pero esta semana algo cambi√≥. La calle und√©cima¬†vino¬†a mi mente despu√©s de ir a un lugar super adorable para un brunch. Sabia que el Este de Austin tenia mucha cultura Mexicana-Americana,¬†pero no sab√≠a cu√°nta cultura afro-americana fue grabada justo al este de IH 35, en las calles 11 y 12.

As I was coming up with ideas on how to craft this post and what direction to take, I got goosebumps when I typed Hillside Farmacy History! There was so much to read and as I kept researching and digging deeper, I came across several websites (which I will mention shortly) that blew my mind!  Austin has lost so much of its charm and historical spots due to demolishing old buildings, painting over historical murals, building condominiums and new businesses around the city. If you were to roam through East Austin, I'm sure it would be hard to recognize the areas of where old business or homes used to stand. Eleventh street contained some of the oldest African-American owned businesses in the city.

Mientras pensaba en ideas sobre cómo elaborar este post y qué dirección tomar, ¡Se me puso la piel chinita cuando escribí Hillside Farmacy History! Había demasiado que leer y, a medida que seguí investigando y profundizando, encontré varios sitios web (que mencionaré en breve) que me asombraron. Austin ha perdido gran parte de su encanto y lugares históricos debido a la demolición de edificios antiguos, pintando sobre murales históricos, construyendo condominios y nuevos negocios en toda la ciudad.  Si llegas a dar una vuleta por el Este de Austin, estoy segura de que sería difícil reconocer las áreas donde solían estar los negocios antiguos o las casas. La undécima calle contenía algunos de los negocios de propiedad afroamericana más antiguos de la ciudad.

Dr. Ulysses Young was the first African-American pharmaceutical owner of Hillside Drugs back in 1950's currently known as Hillside Farmacy Resturant owned by Jade Place. You can really feel the charm and culture as soon as you step in. The many aspects of its beautiful interior and exterior design touches, from the tile flooring, copper accents, and the vintage mustard dining chairs. The rich wood accents really bring out a true culture.

El Dr. Ulysses Young era el primer propetario Farmac√©utico afroamericano de Hillside Drugs en los a√Īos 1950 que es ahora el edificio de Hillside Farmacy Resturant propietario por Jade Place.¬†La atm√≥sfera de Hillside Farmacy tiene ese encanto y cultura tan pronto como entras.¬†¬†La belleza del restaurant¬†esta en muchos de los aspectos de su bello interior y exterior con toques de dise√Īo desde el piso de baldosas, acentos de cobre y las sillas vintage en color mostaza y todos sus detalles de madera.

I fell in love ♥

Interior love. Love at first sight. Color theory. I fell in love with the ambient of this space, it was inviting and calm.

White: Relates a sense of cleanliness and purity. It is great for defining a space, but use white in conjunction with other colors since too much reads as sterile.

Black: An assertion of power. Use black for statement pieces that you want to draw the eye.

Brown: Like green, brown’s natural roots give it a relaxing touch. Choose it for rooms where the family gathers and furniture groupings that will incite conversation.

Yellow: Associated with happiness, creation, and creativity. It works well in combination with a calming neutral and in rooms with lots of natural light to create a peaceful environment.
