“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Really enjoyed a bit of reliving my youth by listening to some great bands, enjoying beer and burgers and soaking up the atmosphere. It didn't feel as seedy as I expected but certainly helped along by the beer!

“Dirty, ghetto and dingy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012 via mobile

Great place if you like puke stained alleys, under age co eds too wasted to walk and homeless beggars. It's dirty, it's dangerous and it's not for families.

“Fun and overwhelming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Where do i start? People watching, bands, DJ, piano bars, food and drink. Love Pete's piano bar -- watch out families -- if you don't like a little salty language/inferences stay away! Since this is close to UT, there are loads of college students -- but that didn't make a 40 year old feel out of place. Texas hospitality extended here too!

“Party street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012 via mobile

You go here if your looking for a wild night of drinking. Lots of college kids, fun for people in their 20's and 30's. Wander off a bit to find some nifty hippy shops out of the way.

“FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Love the history and old buildings. Halloween is a hoot! Twice a year they close it down for a street festival full of vendors.
