This place is historic for live music in Central Texas and San Marcos. George Strait and others got their start here. You can never tell who might see and hear. Good music vibe. Lots of ice cold beer. You can never tell who might make it "big." Check their performance schedule for acts and dates.

Great local dive, nice people, good music. Great happy hour. Historic dive yet refined. George Strait started here. Full bar as well as a good draft selection.

New, up and coming, and successful songwriters can all be found here. This is a very casual bar with a wooden dance floor and pool tables in the back. It is nothing fancy but that just makes it more comfortable. The bar has a good assortment of beers and a few wines. Don't expect to find any food. I have... More

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
