If you want to see all kinds of live music, this is the place to go. There's also shopping and restaurants. The place to go at night.

Go there! Go there at night! And you will have fun!!! There are a lot of bars with live music, mainly rock music. In some bars there are go-go dancers. The diversity of people on the street, loud music, dancers - they all create a feeling of rampant joy.

We were there at night on the 4th of July. What a lively place! Many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and stores lining the street. Dancers on the windows, happy people on the street, multiple choices, great bands to listen to or euro beat clubs. Ideal for bar hopping. We had a fantastic time and would go back for sure.

We went to 6th Street for a meal and finished up staying until very late. The street is lined with various reaturants and bars with a variety of entertainment options. After our meal we walked outside to find that the street had been closed to traffic and pedestrians were free to wander from venue to venue hassle free, what a... More

This is a fun strip of shops and bars. It ranged from the down and dirty biker bar all the way to the hoity toity black and white restaurant.

When our friends told us 6th Street was where the party was, they should have told us it was only hip at nighttime. We went downtown to 6th St. thinking it would be a cool place to get lunch when we first arrived in Austin. We were wrong! There were a few things open but mostly the street was closed... More

If you want a good night out in Austin then 6th street is the place to go. Along the street there are a large number of places to go do you should be able to find something that suites your needs. There is also a large selection of live music which is what 6th street is most well known for.

Each time we go to Austin, we make it a point to spend an evening on 6th street! Tons of live music, people watching, good food and drinks, and the occasional topless lady. I guess it's legal there. Good times.

Wow! This was a lot of fun! You see all kinds of people and everyone was super friendly. All ages, some dressed up, some dressed down. It was a lot of fun to just "people watch".
