Bourbon Street Vibe.

Great night life, young crowd. With the music, bars and rooftop decks, Sixth Street definitely had a Bourbon St. vibe. Have fun.

We have walked the sidewalks of 6th street on a number of occasions and the outcome is always the same - fun! It has a little bit of everything which in and of itself makes it a place for all to go to. Restaurants, pubs, entertainment, wine, chocolates - it even has a Bikini Bar (you don't have to wear...

Can't go wrong with a night of bar hopping on 6th st. Make sure you eat first and if you aren't into the large and younger crowd you may want to try 4th st. For the older crowd it is great people watching. There is every kind of bar and music you can think of....pubs to piano bars. Get your... More

We were told not to walk alone at night around our hotel. Looking forward to 6th St. being renovated in the next few years.

Nearly every city has a road like this, at night it's the party centre, during the day the restaurants are the same, but the area looks sad and rundown. The lights at night..and the alcohol make this road and it's bars look great. Traffic is stopped so you can walk freely. During the day it was surprising how many homeless... More

Real bad bands/singing, loud, dirty, noisy --- I don't get it!!! Displaced people everywhere. I do not get why anyone would come here. Just further north visit Arlos for great vegan eats sans bad "battle of the bands" noise. Maybe it's great during SXSW, but not rest of the time. VooDoo Donuts with a visit. That's all!

6th street was sold to me as the place to go for food, drinking and shopping Austin. There's certainly plenty of all three to go around here. The street is very touristy in parts but mainly seems to function as the night life place in Austin. I was able to find several small museums and tours to go on during... More

The clubs & reaturants are cheek to jowl there along the street. The music is loud and the crowd eclectic. Lots of barkers standing out front offering drink specials.

6th Street in Austin is iconic, to say the least. There must be at least a hundred bars, from elegant to sleazy, lining both sides of the street. It is a very lively scene at night. Be prepared for live music, crowds, cops on horses, and loud revelers. It's a lot of fun, and every visitor to Austin should experience... More
