Owner description: City sponsored, multi block party every weekend in downtown Austin. Street is blocked off for pedestrians only around 11:PM. Best pub crawl

Saturday night the street was barricaded for Halloween dress up partying. Made navigation downtown impossible so parked far, far away. On the whole, it was great for people watching and bar scene. Lots of interesting costumes. Everything ended by 2am.

Everyone told us to visit sixth street; just like Bourbon street or Ybor City. Sorry, no comparison. This is one bar after another with an abundance of bad music. We don't drink and we appreciate musicians who took lessons, so it wasn't a place for us.
There was very little to see, except for one thing. In Austin, shirtless is OK for men AND women and there ARE topless women walking down the street, just walking around, out for the night, REALLY OUT FOR THE NIGHT! It's legal as long as it's not lewd.
All parking is paid. We were luck enough to find parking on the street. It was $3 for 3 hours. And, it's enforced- the car behind us was ticketed. We certainly did not run out the meter.

Borderline seedy - music is happening but I wouldn't compare it to New Orleans or Nashville or even Beale St In Memphis or the Duval Crawl in Key West. Those seem more party places than here. Over-rated. I still think San Antonio's River Walk is the coolest place in Texas.

full of charming restaurants, an amazing antique/junk shop and just the thrill of being there.
Must go later in day for music. We got the ambience

Very fun place to go out in, something for everyone from live country and rock music, karaoke to some great old school hip hop and rnb. No covers in most of the bars just bar hop from west 6th street to east 6th street. Would definitely go out there again, only one downside is getting a cab took me well over a hour on a Friday night to get one, tip is to leave the bars about 1am
