We were actually expecting more country music type places, but it was mostly music and crowds for the much younger. The most fun we had was doing the Urban Adventure Quest (scavenger hunt) which took us all over Austin so we got to see historic spots and learn about the city a little more. My suggestion is to go to... More

It was a rainy Friday night so it was not very crowded, we went into 5 clubs, and listened to different kinds of music, live at 3 clubs, and we really enjoyed it, there were people of all ages, food trucks on our way out were great.

Overrun by barely legal undergraduates (or older, married people looking to cheat with 21 year olds). Drinks are watered down and overpriced. Filthy -- your shoes will be sticking to everything because of spilled drinks and vomit. Austin has tons of bars and restaurants throughout the city; spend your money at one of those places.

Was excited to see this area after hearing so much about it. Have to say it was a major letdown! Crowds were small, bars were empty and live bands were pretty mediocre! I was hoping this area would be like Nashville, where you can go from bar to bar and hear great talent in each one. Definitely not here!

We were there in the afternoon so not much really happening. Stopped in a couple shops and a nice restaurant to have lunch. There is a lot of tackiness on this street. Even thought it was Saturday afternoon, there were a lot of young, 20's, people drinking the afternoon away. Just felt out of place at times. Worth a visit... More

6th Street was not that special. We went each day we were there. There are restaurants, bars, live music. The street is closed at times with a very young crowd. Parking is a challenge with many lots charging $20. Go for the music.

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
