Sixth Street

A real Austin icon, Sixth Street has brewery bars, nightclubs and live music venues that are always pumping.

The locals have divided Sixth Street into West, Dirty and East. The “dirty” bit is the often seedy nightlife section between Congress Avenue and Interstate 35. Live music is the main attraction here, with new bands and solo artists every hour. Sixth Street really shines during the famous SXSW festival, a music and theatre extravaganza. Fancy yourself in the Wild West when you pop into the Driskill Hotel or Buffalo Billiards next door. Also don’t miss the Alamo Drafthouse in The Ritz, a historic theatre.
