Small dark venue with a low-rise stage. Photos here capture exactly what you get. Sit stage-side at tables, or at the wrap around bar. If you want some Austin music-scene without the Austin music-scene, find your way here. One of the best old roadhouses with...More

The Saxon Pub is one of the best places to see music in Austin. It's a hangout of Austin locals, who usually avoid 6th Street. Very intimate little pub, with some of the best music you will ever hear, up close and personal. Great bar,...More

Great night spot and music in SOCO. Can't go wrong with this venue. Three bands each night and they are always good. Fun crowd and atmosphere. Good service as well.

We paid $20 each for two advance tickets online, plus a $7 fee, so we were committed to seeing the 9:00 show on a Friday night. Since it was general admission seating we wanted to get there early. We finally got through all the traffic...More

Great dive venue with great bands and amazing sound. Smell of bar rot, smoke, and great vibes. Definitely encourage you to bring cash, however, as running a tab requires you to hand your credit card to the bartender and they keep. Not accusing anyone of...More

Saxon is known for the music, and it will not disappoint! Live music every night of the week. Smallish place with stage right next to the bar. There is supposed to be a food truck service, but "the guy was not working" the night I...More
