While in Austin, I visited 6th street both day and night. During the day there are less visitors but still plenty of activity. The street is lined with restaurants, bars and shops. Most of the establishments have there doors and windows open so you can hear the music from within. You'll find all types of music being played so there's... More

I could tell that it was a rockin' type street a night no doubt but it was very dirty. I know they call it "Dirty" 6th Street but it really was. I could spend a evening drinking here but I would not want to have to walk too far as it did not seem overly safe. Many homeless people everywhere... More

Friday and Saturday night..... if you want some lively fun, with lots of atmosphere.... and you like bars.... get on down here. 3 blocks or so in length, on both sides, you will find bar upon bar..... with the occasional restaurant and Voodoo donut place mixed in. Live music is everywhere, and for those looking for something else, quieter wine... More

6th street (east) is the epicenter of Austin's nightlife. There is much going on every night but especially on Friday and Saturday nights. On weekends, they block the whole street for cars so only pedestrians are on the street (it's funny to sit in a rooftop bar with a beer in your hand and look how they tow away dozens... More

What's not to do on 6th street? My wife went for the weekend and we had so many option from food and bars we couldn't possibly do it all. On the weekends they even close the street off to traffic so you can walk freely from bar to bar without concern. Absolute blast!

This is a great place to go and hang out. If you have never been to Austin, you should give this a chance. There are so many places to watch live music, eat, have a drink, and shop. I have been to Austin several times and I always spend a couple of evenings here when I go. The live music... More

6th Street is a great place to hangout. A must see in Austin. Night life a lot more fun than day time.

My adult children (mid- 20s) relocated to Austin last year. When we visited this year at the top of their 'must-see' list was 6th Street. It was a unique, eclectic atmosphere that did not disappoint in the evening.

Obviously, if Austin is the life music capital of the country, then the 6th Street is the heart of the capital! It has music and food venues to satisfy any of the tastes. From blues, to jazz, from pun to rock and disco. The street gets blocked from traffic and becomes entirely pedestrian Friday and Saturday nights. A must visit... More

You can't go wrong with visiting 6th Street in Austin. There are so many wonderful shops with an ecliptic variety of treasures to find. I'm sure you will find things here you can't or won't find anywhere else. From the serious to the bizarre, one reason they say keep Austin weird. At night, 6th Street shuts down and turns into...
