“6th Street”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Great place to go to, especially after a full day of meetings. Lots of bars and restaurants. Live music everywhere. Truly a university city.

“The heart of Austin”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Sixth Street seemed to be where everything was happening. There are a variety of places but they all seem to bee offering the same thing. If you're use to a 2 O'clock city it will probably be to your liking. The live music everywhere was nice. Its nice to see upcoming talent. One thing I can say for sure about Sixth Street its a perfect representation of what keeps Austin weird. Personal I found the people on the street equally as entertaining as those in the clubs. Sixth Street is a must to complete one"s trip to Austin.

“Not safe ”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

If you are alone, if you are a woman, if you are a tourist, beware. The pubs look fun, but the people around look at you as if they were considering doing something. Nothing happened to me, but I felt uncomfortable. Go during the day, preferably with companions and wearing nothing too fancy, and be alert.

“Early start nightlife”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Sixth street offers nightlife with an early start (and no doubt late finish) including many venues with life music -we enjoyed the Bat Bar, no cover fee- and within walking distance from downtown hotels such as the Omni. A must-see when in Austin. Well policed, appears to be quite safe really (if you are used to Amsterdam).

“Lots of things for free”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

On 6th street lots of things are for free (see photos) --- smells, hangovers, orgasms, and hugs!

Otherwise a rowdy yet pleasant strip where the nightlife actually starts pretty early ... as early as eight o'clock for the more senior people. Definitely a must see in Austin. Close to downtown hotels such as the Omni.
