I had heard so much about 6th street over the years, but when I got there I realized it was pretty run down with a bunch of dive bars. I like a cool dive bar, but I wasn't a fan of most of the ones...More

amazing street with lots of bars pubs, many of them with live music. gets real crazy and crowded at the weekend. Don't miss if you are in Austin. The buildings are old style which give the street its charm.

Just a tourist rip-off area. Most bars are dirty/filthy and low levels of hygiene. Tramps, beggars and vagabonds everywhere and are aggressive and threatening. Not a policeman in sight. Felt very unsafe.

6th street is 6th street. If you go, you must go at night - as the music and crowds of patrons make this the place to experience.

Cold beer and some really quality music! It's good fun to let yourmears decide upon the right venue at the time. It does seem to me the number of panhandlers is increasing.

If you're looking for someplace to quench your thirst for alcohol while listening to live music, this is your place! Not a whole lot of food to be had though. It has a real college town feel.
