A weekend walk along 6th Street has something for everyone... from the Driskill Hotel (you must go inside to see all the pretty stained glass) all the way to down to the Lucky Lizard (check out their Austin weirdness!)... restaurants, bars, great shops... Be careful after dark though. A young crowd comes and it becomes a bar scene/ meat market.... More

It is am amazing city for music and a clash of different cultures. The music seen is by far the best that I have seen in years and the bands are all really good. You will find the less fortunate ones at times but 9 of 10 are really good!

Well, I was visiting Austin jusst for week due to some official work on my 4 month long trip to US. I didn't have much friends there like I had back in California so it was turning out to be a little boring week. But I was lucky enough to visit during a Sunny week in Jan (just my good... More

If you're into partying hard with people you don't know in dingy, touristy bars, this is the place for you. However, that's not my scene, so I wasn't impressed. My friends and I went to a place called Shakespeare's or something like that first. When I first went to college, my mother explicitly warned me about the alcohol content of... More

Crowded bar after bar. Better to visit over happy hour during the week to avoid the youngsters,vomits and general chaos if you are over 50! Quite the spectacle on the weekends but did not feel safe. Lots of homeless in the area.

Straight party mode. Also left this review on East 6th street... Saturday late night and the party was on... HARD. I guess late Friday and Saturday are the nights to be here. I've come here at non peak times and found it quite disappointing... this was my first late weekend evening here and it was crazy. Nothing refined here, nothing... More

live music free admission and no obligation to tip. I stayed at the chugging monkey most last night cuz the band there was just so good. The band never really took a break when the lead singer took a break there were others that took his place performing. When the band took a break the lead singer performed solo. They... More

So many great features about 6th Street in Austin. Even if you're not a live music fan, the atmosphere here is till electric. But if you are a fan, this is the place to go! Mostly country, country rock, or country blues, but there is other great music as well. It's a little less than 1/2 mile long, there's live... More

Buckle in your liver and get to it. Bar to bar to bar, it is a great time. Texan hospitality still prevails in this noted tourist destination. If your up for a night out that will take a few months off of your life, do it!!!
