Great local music, some of the best Happy Hour music events in Austin. Go on Wednesdays and see Johnny Nicolas. It feels like a local place and has a good vibe. Parking can be a nightmare, though, so drive around the back, behind the gas station, to park on the streets behind the Saxon. Well worth the time. And order... More

The music was good here, but it was difficult finding a seat. There was no dance floor, which made the place even more crowded with people wanting to dance. Drinks were good. Bartenders were on top of it!

While they serve no food here, the pizza house next door will deliver. The beer was great and the "old man" band was the best. Stayed for under an hour but the visit was real Texas.

Got there very early for happy hour. Had margaritas that were not that tasty, plenty of tequila, but not great margaritas by any stretch of the imagination......but patio was wonderful, had fun sitting there soaking in the sun and there were flowers in bloom around the fence. Finally we went inside to get a seat for the free show, the... More

Was in town and had to stop, IF THIS is not the coolest spot in Austin I'd be VERY hard pressed to find it.

It was our first visit to Austin and we were after bar-b-q and music. We were referred to Saxon Pub by a couple of locals. I had read about it on TA, so it was already on my list. We visited on a Sunday evening, paid a small cover, walked in and wondered what we had gotten ourselves into. This... More

I love this bar - wait, Toby Keith already said that. But, I do love this bar - a total little dive bar that has been in Austin forever. Many local musicians play here regularly. My all time favorite: The John Gaar Band, and my second fav: Patrice Pike. John plays free on Sunday nights from 5:30 - 7.

Great place to chill and catch some great Austin Music. Went here on a recommendation at a hotel and the band was great as well as the pub.

Best live music in Austin. Lots of fun and good drinks. Friendly staff Always a very good show and you never know who might show up, like Bonnie Raitt or Willie Nelson.

Went here on a recommendation. Glad I did. Great place for live local music. Service good. People very friendly. If The Whiskey Sisters are playing, you'll get a real treat.
