Texas’ best known street, the seven blocks of 6th Street between Congress and IH 35, is certainly at the center of Austin’s entertainment spectrum.
Sixth Street is lined with many historical houses and buildings dating from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The storied old buildings now house numerous bars, a host of live entertainment venues, art galleries, casual cafes, upscale restaurants and the renowned Driskill Hotel.
Live music of every genre thrives: jazz, blues and country to rock, hip-hop, beat, progressive, metal, punk and derivations of these. There’s something for everyone’s musical palate.
Great food is a staple on Sixth Street, featuring such regional staples as chili, ribs and Tex-Mex plus steak, seafood and Cajun-cooking.
Going west from the entertainment area, West Sixth Street offers more unique options with antique stores, art galleries, hair salons, restaurants and eclectic shops.
Sixth Street is Austin’s entertainment showpiece. Renowned events like the Austin Mardi Gras Celebration, SXSW, The Republic of Texas Bikers Rally, the Pecan Street Festival and Sixth’s Street infamous Halloween Celebration all make for great times with great people in Austin, Texas.
