I love the vibe on 6th street. You have tourists, businessmen, hippies all mixed together and enjoying themselves. Usually, the street is closed off on Friday and Saturday nights, allowing more space for people to enjoy the many restaurants, bars and clubs here.

If you're young and love to hang out and love music and meet people you'll find it all right here. Plus there are many great places to get barbeque and other good fixins nearby. Things really get going after 9 pm but music starts before then in some places. This is the heart of the action for the young in... More

Sixth street is filled with bars, music, food, shops and a few homeless people. It was a good experience to walk down and here the music and aroma of different foods. Although I did t like being harassed by some of the local homeless people. While I was visiting the state capital building I did share my lunch with a... More

The 6th street is something not easily to describe. Sound and atmosphere are awesome and you can walk, drink and dance together with several other. You need just to have fun and leave the rest outside of this street.

I've watched 6th Street evolve, or devolve from an attractive downtown area with restaurants and some bars, to a place of almost all bars and decay. No real sense of the community any longer. It's sad, but it is still attractive if you are a college kid or twenty-something, and it's not unusual to have central city areas go through... More

We stayed at the Driskill which is right at 6th street. Frankly it's just like Bourbon Street in New Orleans (except cars are allowed). The street is open door bars with loud music and plenty of drinking... probably good for all the bachelorette parties there.

The old architecture and live music make this so much more than just some souvenir selling tourist trap.Walking down the street one performer after another hits you with their sounds as you pass which ever establishment they happen to be performing in. If you are looking for inexpensive souvenirs to take home this would be the place to go also.... More

I stayed at the Driskill with my son and two friends in June and looked forward to some great music on 6th Street and, to be fair, we found some. But there was a lot for, shall we say, the younger crowd.

6th street East (East of Congress Ave) is largely for the under 25 crowd..a bit noisier and less mature than those that you will find in the Warehouse District and (West of Congress) on 6th. All are busy on the weekends and there are multiple places to eat and drink and dance on either side of Congress...just depends on the... More
