Another recommendation we are glad we took. We were there on a Monday night, the Peterson Brothers were the first act. Phenomenal musicians and they are teenagers. We met their parents, amazing family. Second act was Doc Watson, evidently a guy who is well known in Austin. Fun time and a place the locals love

Spent a couple of hours here on a Saturday afternoon, enjoying the tunes and atmosphere. Classic hole in the wall, reasonable drinks, good music.. What's not to like? RECOMMENDED!

Been there for a few drinks in the evening, the live music was great as was the general atmosphere. If you happen to be in Austin with some spare time in the evening, I'd recommend it

Great place to see live bands. Eclectic. Funky. Fun. Crowded. All kinds of music. If music is your scene, you can't miss it.

This is a funky cool hipster music venue on South Congress, by some good eateries. I don't know if they serve food, but I wouldn't eat it if they did. On the other hand, this is a great place for cheap drinks and live music. We rolled in early, for no cover... but eventually they came around to collect $8... More

The music is like early Elvis i.e. Jailhouse rock style. In fact they have a poster of the french version of the movie on the wall. It's definitely is typical Austin. If you like to dance this is the place to be.

Austin is said to have 300+ music venues, and I can believe it, given all the concert listings in the local paper. There are, however, just a few that MUST be experienced, and the Continental Club is one of them. Located on South Congress, the dimly lit bar has a small stage boasting a retro-style logo. Kitschy murals of European... More

The night we went here there was a Loretta Lynn themed night, we really enjoyed the performers. Absolute highlight and one of the most amusing night outs ever was the pie auction. People auctioned off pies they had made, very funny! Keeping Austin weird!

The classic, must-do, dive-bar, live-music Austin venue since 1957. You just can’t go wrong with the performers here. Don’t miss it!

This is a relatively small but very cool old style blues club. This place is decorated VERY eclectic (in a good way) The day we stopped by there was a great band (the Peterson Brothers) who were only teenagers but were awesome. High energy, great fun. Highly recommend.
