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.

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

Looking to get a feel for the Austin music scene on the quick? This is a great spot for you. With only a few hours to spare in Austin, I made my way to this quintessential destination for music and drinks. The Continental didn't disappoint. Service was good, the beer was cold, and for those few hours, I was really... More

I love hole in the wall places even though this one of the most famous holes in the wall in Austin. Still looks very authentic and original. All the greats played there. Very cool.
