My wife and I came here for the live music - sorry - go to Nashville. Nothing going on during the day time and don't wonder off 6th to far before you see homeless folks. This was a big disappointment for me and my wife. Both of us have the same opinion of Austin vs. Nashville. Austin is off my... More

Stayed at The Driskill, which is right by 6th street. It's a really cool area, filled with restaurants, bars, and shops ... and of course, lots of great live music. I definitely thought it was worth the visit, and would've liked to have had more time to spend there.

6th offers numerous bars and different music depending on what you want to hear. It is convenient to hotels. South Congress is about a mile walk. Not the place for young kids and I've often wondered what one must do to get arrested here but it is a good time and there is a lot to choose from depending whether... More

I didnt like the area with lots of homeless people who are everywhere maybe because it was my first night of clubbing in the US and I was just comparing the place with Europe or Asia, also in two hours I saw many people fully covered by tattoo. never going back again

Fun, Loud. Basic bar street. Lots of live music and food. Covers are typically cheap- $5. Parking is a problem. You're going to have to walk for blocks, just to get to 6th street, and then you need to walk 4 or 5 more blocks to see it all. Be prepared for anything. People singing, pan handling, some nudity, but... More

I was in town for business and stayed at the Driskill. This allowed easy access to 6th street. There are a ton of bars with live music and plenty of restaurants. It's a cool place to go to. I really enjoyed it.

A day time trip might have you turning back before the end of the block. It's still a bit Seedy but full of great bars and historic buildings. Download the free Austin Walking tours from Ye Apps store. Not every building is included but many of the really interesting ones are. Good live music at night

The 6th Street is a must if you care to learn something about the Austin culture and history. For many reasons, this is one of the most famous streets of Austin. You can find Cafes, bars, restaurants and lots of fun.
