My wife and I went here late on a Sunday night after dinner. The $8 cover charge put me off straight away but in we went. The hot bottle of beer next didn't help improve the night. I didn't like the music I thought it sounded awful. The wife loved the music and had a dance. The next lot of... More

Visited during Austin City Limits and enjoyed it more than the festival. In my view the quintessential Austin experience! I will be back.

I am by no means a country music fan, but lucked out and went to the annual fundraiser for the Healthcare Alliance for Austin Musicians. We saw about 15 acts do two songs each with an incredible back-up band, some of whom played with Buck Owens, in whose honor the event is also held. Wow, what musicianship! Great beers on... More

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
