a favorite music venue

Each time I am in Austin, I visit the Continental Club. It is a fun venue; bands are usually top-notch, and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Highly recommended!

Have been visiting the Continental Club for the 30 years I lived in Austin. Now that I've moved away, I still enjoy visiting as a tourist. Along with many others! Chatted up a couple from England at the bar who were thoroughly enjoying the scene. Great music every night of the week, early and late. And now that I'm not... More

Then you MUST go to the oldest music club in town, the Continental Club. I went for the early show - no cover happy hour - and was treated to a raucous time by a local favorite band. Live music every night; several acts back-to-back. Go!

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
