What the hell, asked to leave for no apparent reason. Ridiculous. If we came back to Texas, we would not come back to this club, Ever.

We wondered into this place looking for some live music on SoCo. The music, I believe, was a house band, and they were good. Their was a birthday party there that seemed to be regulars so the band was playing to them a lot. The drinks were average and the prices a little on the higher end. Once the band... More

Had such a great time at this funky little club. We caught the end of a jazz/blues band, but stayed for two more fantastic eclectic bands, Chris Watson and Soul Track Mind. Both are such talented bands, especially Soul Track Mind-man, can those guys put on a show! We had never heard of either band before, but they sure made... More

We walked around 6th for a while looking for music. We went into a couple of places that were too loud. The Continental club had a great band playing classic country. Very comfortable place. We listened to music and played some pool in the back room. Really enjoyed our time.

I stopped by the Continental Club to listen to a little live music and wasn't disappointed. The band was "just" an early evening house band, but every musician was talented, entertaining, and fun to watch and listen to. A laid-back atmosphere, no sense of urgency or expectation, the crowd was all ages, sizes and shapes - a casual and fun... More

The Continental Club is the stuff of legend. We ended up there with friends on a Saturday afternoon to see some live music having just strolled in off the street. The location is great for an afternoon of strolling the SoCo strip for cool shops and boutiques. The club feels like a night-time venue, it was dark but friendly with... More

Continental Club oozes atmosphere and there is live music every night. Lots of seating and the beers are cold and the music's hot. It's a change from Sixth Avenue.

We visited happy hour at the Continental Club and were warmly greeted. The band playing were excellent - great music, no cover just place your tips in the bucket to show your appreciation. Where else but Austin can you walk in a club, buy a drink and listen to really excellent music at no cost. It is fabulous. There is... More

Went to the Continental Club three times in a week, since we were staying right across the street at the Austin Motel. It was nice to go somewhere that I had heard about all of my life. First night we went upstairs around 8:30, no cover, to hear a local band that was mediocre-ok. Very little seating and what is... More

Located on the South Congress part of town -- set amidst great TexMex delights -- this classic refuge for mostly oldtimers and lovers of "classic" rock and country is inviting, warm and simple. There is plenty of bar area and seats to watch those on stage and those who let loose on the dance floor. How those Texans can dance.... More
