Where else to you hvae bar after bar filled with such an eclectic mix of people? hippies and stoners, preppy UT students drinking on fake ID's, adults here for conventions and parents weekends. After 11 pm , it can remind one of the grand bazaar in Turkey: bouncers calling out their wares, trying to lure the best looking girls to... More

plenty of bars and dancing with lots of fun people and street food or quick bites to eat. You can find live music or places with DJs and dancing.

I've been a few times to Austin and I always have a night out to 6th street! There are a million bars so you are likely to find one that suits you!

We were actually expecting more country music type places, but it was mostly music and crowds for the much younger. The most fun we had was doing the Urban Adventure Quest (scavenger hunt) which took us all over Austin so we got to see historic spots and learn about the city a little more. My suggestion is to go to... More

It was a rainy Friday night so it was not very crowded, we went into 5 clubs, and listened to different kinds of music, live at 3 clubs, and we really enjoyed it, there were people of all ages, food trucks on our way out were great.

Overrun by barely legal undergraduates (or older, married people looking to cheat with 21 year olds). Drinks are watered down and overpriced. Filthy -- your shoes will be sticking to everything because of spilled drinks and vomit. Austin has tons of bars and restaurants throughout the city; spend your money at one of those places.

Was excited to see this area after hearing so much about it. Have to say it was a major letdown! Crowds were small, bars were empty and live bands were pretty mediocre! I was hoping this area would be like Nashville, where you can go from bar to bar and hear great talent in each one. Definitely not here!
