“Crappy even for a weeknight”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Yikes...this dump was dead on the night we were there. You would think that the staff would appreciate some business but the deadbeat bartender could barely be bothered to recommend any local brew. There are way too many cool places on sixth street to deal with this place.

“Nice to watch a band or have a drink”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Nice little pub, they have some interesting bands playing there on the weekends, the doormen are very friendly and excellent at dealing with drunken idiots! Drinks are average price for 6th Street. It's a bit dirty looking but then most of the bars on that strip are.

“Darwin's Pub, Austin, TX”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Hadn't had swarma since Cairo--years ago. Good take on a memory. Chicken wrap with lots (I mean lots) of garlic. Nice respite from the normal commotion on 6th Street.

“Quieter than some”
Reviewed July 8, 2010

Average bar. Music was not as earbleeding loud as some other 6th street bars.

“nice place to have a drink and relax”
Reviewed August 18, 2008

Great place to sit back and have a drink. It's made for the slightly older crowd. Very few college kids. Classic rock on the sound system. Lots of beers and full bar. Very friendly, local crowd. Very accommodating to newbies.
