Great place for college kids & young adults but I'm in my 50's. Highly recommend it for bachelorette parties if you're wearing something that indicates you're the bride - lots of free drinks!

OK - it is a wild place with live music and great food everywhere - even on week nights! And don't be surprised to see a cowboy with no shirt on his horse riding through downtown. Ton's of hip 20 and 30 somethings - all the way to cool old men with long, gray pony tails. This is a great... More

Fun place to walk and stop in for food or beer and the many many restaurants and bars. Watch out when walking for the horse poop, yes I said horse poop, you are in Texas after all and the police department keeps the area safe on horse mount and the horses leave their marks everywhere in the middle of the...

During the night the street is closed off to traffic and you can walk around to the various restaurants, pubs and bars. Most of the pubs and bars have live music and no entrance fees required. The live music is decent, but there are other places around town for better live music.

If your looking for a crazy night of drinking, this street is perfect for you. From the Alamo Drafthouse to the Shakespeare Pub to DeathMetal Pizza, there is something for everyone. It does get pretty rowdy, but I don't think anyone is surprised at this.

This is the bar district that you go to in Austin for cheap wells and domestic beer. It consists mostly of a younger, college aged crowd and can get pretty rowdy on the weekends. This spot is very tourist heavy and doesn't offer a lot in the way of culture outside of being the center of Austin's very heavy drinking... More

I recently visited 6th street and was not impressed. There are homeless people everywhere asking for handouts. While in a Starbucks a man came in and began shouting and swearing at the clerk. He was out of control and everyone it the coffee shop was terrified. Even after he was made to leave he continued to rant and rave outside.... More

Mostly for the younger, partying crowd, but don't discount this place as a stop by. The street is closed to traffic at night and they're lines with bars, pubs, clubs and a few shops. The places compete for your business so cocktails are inexpensive...live music at most places. This is an experience and the people watching offers lots of different... More
