Sixth Street Entertainment District
Experience bustling street life and a festive atmosphere with live music and entertainment on the most well-known street in Texas!
It's all about good times on Sixth Street – with an array of bars and lively ambiance, you'll quickly realize why this eclectic street is a must-visit for anyone traveling to Austin. The downtown stretch of Sixth Street, east of Congress Avenue and west of Interstate 35, has been referred to as the equivalent of New Orleans' Bourbon Street.
Enjoy strolling between the party bars, but don't forget to check out some of Sixth Street's other offerings, including tattoo parlors, art galleries, casual cafés, upscale restaurants and more.
Sixth Street is also host to many high-profile events, most notably South by Southwest (SXSW) – a trio of major film, interactive and music festivals and conferences held in March each year. Other notable events include The Republic of Texas Bikers Rally, the Pecan Street Festival and Sixth Street's infamous Halloween celebration. For added fun, venture past downtown to West Sixth Street to experience upscale bars including Kung Fu Saloon, The Dogwood, The Ranch and The Rattle Inn.
