Having been a working musician off and on for 20 years in Austin, 6th street is an area that I avoid whenever possible. The party atmosphere can become quickly nasty with drunk revelers. There are a few venues down here- but the music scene has mostly evaporated on 6th street. Much better places to go in Austin to take in... More

If your looking for something to do the evening in downtown Austin and you like some rock and blues visit the bars located on 6th street as they have an array of live music and atmosphere really rocks. I would highly recommend it.

6th street is an experience. A lot of music and bars with something for pretty much all tastes - as long as you like music and bars. Plenty of cheap dives and even a couple of nicer places. This is the place where Austin gets to claim the "live music capitol" as almost every bar has a band playing -... More

If you like music, booze and college students then 6th street just might be for you. Parking is limited and you need to pay close attention because of crime. Much safer the closer you get to Brazos and the Driskill Hotel.

This is the street to be at night. There is tons of bars and most of them have live music and no entrance fee. The place gets packed with people and the bars actually get really good acts to perform there. There's a few shady people hanging around at the street and might ask you for a change, but just...

Amazing stretch of downtown Austin. Always easy to find live music. Stayed down the road and always walked to 6th Street to party it up. The night life here is awesome and very diverse. Highly recommend visiting here. Visited in June of 2009.

I had a great time, in fact one of my favorite days on the trip was just drinking the day away and playing shuffle board. It's really a party street, so the usual advice - watch your wallets, be aware of your surroundings, and watch your drink - but I would deff visit again!

If you are in Austin, then you should check out 6th Street. You will only need to go one time (if you know what I mean), but you should go once. There are better restaurants west of this section of town in the warehouse district, but 6th street has great music venues. You definitely need to stay aware of your... More

We love to sit and watch all the neat people moving about. There is always such a diverse group of people and music find a bar with a window or patio on 6th and enjoy yourself.

6th street is full of sensory experiences at night! The street is closed off, a variety of music can be heard from the many bars that are along this route, drink and food specials provide a treat for your taste buds, and the people watching is a feast for your eyes! Tons of fun if you are looking for some... More
