No matter who you hear at Austin City Limits it will be great! They bring great musicians to one of, if not the best places to hear music anywhere. Even in the last row you are not far from the stage, this is not an enormous concert arena. Performers also tend to give their best, it's a place for the... More

I happened to see Sarah McLachlan concert it was a great venue I think the mezzanine seats give you the best view of the stage it has many drink stations so you could get beer wine or alcohol and the seats were pretty comfortable I had a great time in a nice venue

When we learned we were going to Austin to visit our daughter my husband went online to see the events at Austin City Limits. He entered to be at a live taping and much to our surprise he won! With only 2 tickets available it became a daddy daughter date. So much fun!

the venue has a really great design. I don't believe you can have a bad view. the general admission (standing room only) I think has the best "seat" in the house - there are actually no seats but you are very close to the stage and you are able to move around the room at your leisure. there are bars...

Nice modern and sleek design make this venue really enjoyable. Have drinks at the stylish W Hotel right next door. Great location; lots of restaurants and shopping round out this neighborhood.

There were no concerts at the venue while were in town, however you can take a tour on Friday mornings. We purchased our tickets at the box office and what an awesome tour we had. Tony was so knowledgeable and clearly has so much passion about ACL and his work there. They were prepping for a live taping for that... More

Even though ACL is now spread out over 2 weekends- there are plenty of Great Bands to enjoy. It's just before Austin F-1 Race so it's non-stop fun in Austin for 3 straight weekends. Weather is great in Fall- warm enough and cool enough in the evenings. 3C Entertainment puts on a Top Notch event every year. This is only... More

Great blues and rock musicians are here. Lots of history as well (as this place is the site of the Austin City Limits television show on PBS). You gotta see a concert here!
