Expected a music, street and bar scene like Broadway and 2nd avenue in Nashville! 6th street didn't even come close. 6th street is for a younger crowd. For a crowd that enjoys it's music loud. Walking by the bars the music was loud on the street can't imagine what it was like inside. Lots of bars, restaurants and people.

Walked around (be prepared for humidity)....had a pretty good time, not super busy during the day but still interesting to see during the day. Lots of bars and restaurants to explore.

My husband and I were here in Mid-May on a Monday night, so it was understandably pretty quiet. We were fine with the fact that it was a more chilled out night and initially enjoyed being able to stroll around and see all the different bars and shops. However, after several blocks, we noticed more and more panhandlers. It started... More

Blocks of rooftop bars and restaurants. Many old buildings with a lot of history. A lot of bars with games and activities. Thursday-Sunday the street gets shut down to vehicular traffic from 9pm-2am for a Bourbon Street style party.

Full of both locals and tourists. The Sixth Street area is hub for the famous Austin live music scene. Funky and fun.

Went to a wedding earlier in the day. Different age group on the party bus. I found 6th street to be fun...however it is for a younger crowd. I would say 20-40 somethings. Definitely not for kids.

I've lived in Austin since 1985 and worked at a Bar on 6th street in college. I am shocked that people on vacation want to bring their children/teenagers here!? Sixth street at night is mostly drunken college kids from the nearby universities and 20-something singles, the older bar-goers tend to migrate west to the Lavaca area. The Salvation Army (homeless... More

This is an annual festival and if you are in Austin the first of May, you should definitely go. Lots of food, Arts and music, so if you like this you should definitely make plans to go.

We still enjoy a good night out but were a little disappointed by sixth street. A lot of the bars seem to have gone over to RnB music instead of traditional live country or rock n roll, which felt just like what you could have had at home. The exception was the duelling piano bar, lots of fun and talented... More
