A smallish bar on South Congress Street (SoCo district) has music every afternoon and a couple of shows a night. For those who want to see some local music but really do not know where and what, the Continental Club offers a chance to just do it. There is limited seating but if the music is good do you really... More

Torn seats, old beer & cigarette smell, dirty bathrooms, expensive beers and high cover charge...no thanks.

We went here for some live music and were not disappointed! The band was good. There is a nice little dance floor. The bartenders were nice and ventured out of their comfort zone to make a new cocktail. We would go back. It was a lot of fun!

You can have a good time at the Continental Club any time, any day of the week. It is never too crowded, there is always room to dance and fun is a sure thing. There is a 3 pm show every day if you don't want to stay out late!

We popped into the continental club on a Sunday afternoon after we had a wander round the soco shops. It looks dingy from the outside but inside we got to listen to some great rock n roll music and watch the residents of Austin enjoying a Sunday afternoon dance, there were some serious skills on the dance floor. There seemed... More

I don't know if I've ever met anyone that doesn't like Austin, and for a Yankee like me, this place epitomizes what it's all about. It's Texas through and through, welcoming, a bit on the rough and ready side, and the music is great for those who have a bent for country/rockabilly. I loved it, from the retro decor (is... More

Everything we read and our B&B hosts suggested we make a visit here. We visited the gallery on a Wednesday evening. A very informal atmosphere with older furniture (duck tape included) around the outside of the main room. A very eclectic group of customers. The music played by both bands was good. Drinks were reasonable and there was a minimum... More

We arrived before the cover charge and it was already pretty full. We had to stand for about an hour before several people left and we got their seats at the bar. It was the coolest club. Great live music, The Blues Specialists were playing when we were there, sounded great. People were dancing on a small dance floor while... More

It's all about the music! Although the front room w/ the bar, stage and paintings of France IS cool, and the back room w/ the pool table and painting of that red head is even COOLER. But the music is always special. Go Sunday night to catch The Wagoneers. Awesome, authentic honky tonk music. If you're lucky, the pretty waitress... More

Sort of a hole in the wall type place, seemed pretty dated with rips in chairs etc. Dale Watson was very good, we enjoyed seeing him; Shiner bock $5.25, they did have a special on lonestar light since Dale was playing.. I would probably go again to see an entertainer I was interested in. Dance floor was small and very... More
