East 6th Street
One of the first streets surveyed in Austin, Sixth was originally known as Pecan Street. During the day, shops, restaurants and historic buildings are the main attraction, but by night, the street becomes festive with live music, shows and special events. On Friday and Saturday nights, the blocks are closed to automobile traffic for an all-out street party. Stop by for a beer or a show, or just enjoy watching the eclectic nightlife of Austin. After the bars close at 2a, this can be a dangerous place to hang out alone.
awesome night life... alot of the bars you can go in and out of and theres no cover charge so you basically pay for drinks... when we got tired of walking up and down we went to one club and paid a cover and just stayed there the whole night. you can stand out side each club and hear the music they plan so you kind of know what kind of bar it is.... but overall i love sixth street!!!
Going back to the 60's and 70's when Guadalupe was "the drag", Austin's live music scene seems to get pigeon-holed into one strip, which it most definitely is not. Spend some time on 6th, sure, but venture out to Antone's, Threadgill's, the Broken Spoke, and the Continental Club, just to name a few. I echo all the other comments about Austin's cool, etc. just don't think 6th St. should be considered the epicenter of that.
Great clubs where Live music is the norm, and not too many DJ'd music which end up being Hip Hop Dance Clubs. Best time to go is when South By Southwest Musical Festival is occuring. For about $50, you can go to just about any club and see great up and coming bands or bands on the fringe of making it before they get signed.
I Moved To Texas For A Short While This Year And Everyone Told Me Since I Was Here I Would Hav To Go To E.6th Street. So I Went And I Must Say...It Is Live!! Its Flooded With Clubs And Bars...Just A Great Night Scene On 6th Street. But The Best Night Out There Was Halloween! It Was Overan With So Many Costumes (real creatives ones) And Different People. Just From Any Stand Point On 6th Street You Was Able To Hear Hip Hop, Rock, Tajano, and R & B Music Blaring. It All Added To The Fun Of That One Street. I Cant Wait To Get Back To Texas To Hit 6th Street!
