As a bunch of brits we never pictured Austin having such a good night life, sixth street was mental the bars are clean and each have their own unique personality. There are street food places everywhere serving some peng scran. The bars are fairly expensive...More

East Sixth Street was the place to find great live music and you still can if you want to wade through not so pleasant surroundings. This place was unique - different than the other “weird” street venues across the country. Yes it had some class...More

This place is just covered in bars, restaurants and oddly enough ATMs. If you are looking for a bar crawl night out, it’s hard to imagine you wouldn’t find something to your liking here. Just don’t expect this to be a “nice” part of town.

We went to sixth street twice on your trip and sorry to say but there are far too many homeless people begging on each corner. It gets annoying after a while. The street itself does have plenty of bars and restaurants but you are harassed...More

6th Street is party central to Austin as Bourbon Street is to NOLA, except that you’ll hear better music in Austin. (With 2 or 3 exceptions, like Fritzel’s, Preservation Hall, Bombay, you gotta get to Frenchmen for serious music in NOLA nowadays.) Esther’s Follies has...More

6th street is a lot of fun but can become overwhelming as the night goes on. If you like a quiet scene, I would visit earlier in the night, as the bars/clubs/streets tend to become very crowded as the hours pass. There are so many...More

This is a must visit for the area. Can be very crowded with drunk college students, but still worth the visit, just for the experience.
