A must for the devoted drinker! There are plenty of bars starting at the intersection of 6th and Congress Street. They have fun names, like The Bat Bar, Maggie Mae's, Darwin's Bar, Shakespeare's Bar, and many many more. You owe it to yourself to visit,...More

I expected more from 6th street by the reviews I read. I prefer Nashville anyway over Austin. 6th street was more of a college crowd atmosphere with pizza places all around. Music was fair but the piano bar by far was the most entertaining.

A lot has changed in the past decades. Sixth Street (Pecan Street) has morphed into an entertainment district with something for everyone. Places to eat and places to drink along with a few music venues to attend. I just like wandering up and down and...More

Fun place to visit or even have a party, but no one over 20 years old should be here after 11 pm. It is very loud and has a ton of twenty something drunks.

I found 6th street scruffy, in need of a clean up, and certainly it has had it's hay day. Still very busy with bars and music but not an attractive area. The whole area needs an uplift to bring it up a few notches and...More

I had no idea what "6th Street" was until I arrived in Austin, and was pleasantly surprised. When I wondered down the street from one live music venue to another, I got the sense of deja-vu. The live music venues on 6th Street remind me...More

We like the Embassy Suites right on Congress. Get one of the suites on the upper floors if you have kids, it's worth the splurge! Walk across the street and watch the bats come out from under the bridge, then walk up to... More
