Went early for happy hour and to get a place to sit. We had heard that it gets crowded later and they don't have a lot of sitting. We were not disappointed in the first band. Unfortunately I don't remember their name but the singer was named Sarah. We stayed for her set but when they wanted $8 for a... More

Went to the Continental Club for an album release show and to socialize with other musical friends. Very easy to get into for people with wheelchairs. However I never did check the restrooms for accessibility. It appears to be a very old building, so its questionable. Wheelchairs will have issues if the venue is packed. A lot of people bumping...

It has some great old photos, and neon;the well worn interior adds to the experience. Staff are friendly and talented! The group that performed was amazing. Dale Watson and his Loan Stars were a blast. They performed their own music plus some favorites. Our waitress sang a couple songs with them and she has an amazing voice. All in a... More

When in Austin live music is a must. The club has an old school shabby chic look to it but was a cool experience.

If you're looking for a great crowd with equally good music, then you should move on over to the Continental Club - a venue that has live music almost every night of the week. In my recent visit, I watched a blues/rock band perform large and kept the crowd into their original set. When wanting for a bit more variety,... More

Such a dive, in the best possible way. Great live music with a small dance floor right in front of the stage to get your two-stepping on! We had such a blast and can't wait to go back!

I've seen a lot of live music in smaller clubs but this place is special Was opened in 1955 and probably looks exactly the same 60 years later Kitschy murals of the continental European capitols on the wall But that is secondary to the music which was great! Fabulous band and great friendly crowd No pushing and shoving, just people... More

We wanted to hear live music and this place is one of the top 10 in Austin. We saw "Grady". They are called a cowboy metal band. We went online and heard a bit of their music online and they sounded good. Once we got to the club and they started playing, they were so loud that you couldn't make... More
