Decent Prices for beer, and some of the Best Music outside Austin and Gruene Hall. This establishment knows how to support local and touring artist.

We saw Todd Snyder there last week. Chatham Street is unique and all about the music. It is a " Hill Country" place in San Marcos, Texas. We are planning to go again soon.

This is a great place to hear some amazing country music. Last time I was here I saw Randy Rogers play acoustic. He said this was one of the first places he started playing at while he was going to college at the then South West Texas University. This place always has great vibe.

We went to Cheatham Street for a concert. As fatmac said, if you don't get you probably never will. This not your socialite kind of place, but the ambiance is unique. The lead backup singer's bus broke down and she was using the ladies room as a dressing room, which afforded an opportunity for my wife to engage in a... More

George Strait got his start here, keep this in mind. It's a real Texas honky tonk and it's a dive bar by most definitions. The "crowds" are small, the music is awesome, they have some really awesome craft beers on tap and it's cheap!

if you get it, you get it...if you don't, then don't come to San Marcos, it will be lost on you... the smell of stagnant smoke and spilled beer in the 15 year old industrial knap carpet is a unique experience that is just that, an experience. I had the luxury of frequenting CSW and it's exactly what you want... More

You can come by anytime and get your beer in a mason jar and listen to some great music. You really need to come if you are into the Texas music scene, cheatham has been a launching venue for some real heavy hitters

All I can say is George has come a long way considering that he started he. We didn't even stay long enough to have a drink.

This place should have a historical marker. George Strait got his start here (with Ace in the Hole). Willie and Waylon have played and partied here. Sleazy Charlie had his way with more coeds than most frat boys dare lie about. Many a young college student's diploma dreams ended here. This is where Dave S. posted his straight F grade... More
