Number of great dinner places on 6th street, but from thurs-sat after around 10:00pm the place gets very clubby. Lots of bars and clubs with promoters trying to get you to engage. If you are up for a lively night, pick a nice dinner spot on 6th and then plan on hitting one of the many clubs. Not a family... More

6th Street was such a friendly and laid back place to drink and eat. Locals are friendly and helpful. So many places to have a good time. It is good to see how they have tried to preserve some of the older buildings. Great times!

I was excited to make the drive from Round Rock to 6th street and experience the Austin City Experience. Ugh! As a 50 year old man with a 26 year old companion I definitely felt I was in the wrong place (my younger companion not so much). The music was not even close to Nashville or Bourbon street. Bars were... More

Driskell hotel, gotta stop in and see the woodwork. (Nice bathrooms, by the way) plus a good dining spot. Friends Bar - a blast and no cover charge!! Live entertainment about every 15 steps and it's all great. Prices: Top shelf bourbon and glass wine at Friends: $17. Beer, Coyote Ugly: $5. So not terribly expensive. Parking is impossible, but...

Had I known about this when I was younger and single, it'd have gotten a 5! This place is party central in Austin, complete with bars, restaurants, bars, dance clubs, bars, and fun little weird shops that sell stuff like retro stuff from the 60s- 80s or comic book related items or biker related items. Basically, it's a party street... More

I decided to go down to Austin for my 21st birthday. We hit up "dirty 6th" on my birthday night. It was fun, I got lots of free drinks from the bars and some people. Everyone was really nice! In the first bar, some drunk guy put his arm around me and stole my crown and put it on his... More
