Staying in Austin, TX for a few nights
Going there on 2/28 to 3/3 to hang with friends and get out to the bars to see live music. Any recommendations for a decent hotel where I can walk to live music bars?
What kinds of music do you like? If it were me, I'd stay at one of the hotels downtown, and then cab it to various venues. I mean, if you're downtown you'll be close to Dirty Six, but you'll mainly see cover bands in that area. If you're looking for local original bands/artists, you can try places like the Continental Club,(they have a smaller club called the Gallery directly above.) the Saxon Pub or One 2 One bar.....that's a start.
Thanks...I think interested in both. It is just a few days away to party with buddies, so any live music is good.
Is downtown like the 6th street area? Are we cabbing it no matter what?
Red River District
Generally Downtown is 6th. I usually stay away from there. The clubs with dance tunes and stuff. There is some stuff popping up East of I35 too.
If you're staying downtown, you won't need to cab to 6th st. Most of our "entertainment district" is downtown, but some of the more popular live music venues are just a bit outside of downtown.
What kind of music would you most likely be wanting to check out?
I'm sure your friends have a handle on where to go and what to feed you :)
Live music with a country/new country/Americana vibe I guess. I could go for some gold 'ol cow punk too.
And of course beer!
We are going to see Monte Montgomery at the One World Theatre, but for the rest of the time, we want our hotel to be in walking distance to some of the aforementioned types of music venues.
Really though taking a trip with a few buddies away from the family just to party and enjoy music is gonna be a win anyway! :bassist:
Also check who's playing the Continental Club on S. congress, walking distance over the bridge. The Saxon Pub and the Broken Spoke on S. Lamar will be cab ride distance though not too far/expensive.
The "Austin Chronicle" is our free newspaper here with all the entertainment listings. Can see that at www.auschron.com
There's also the new theatre on 2nd st. where they film Austin City limits, can check that, and there's Threadgill's and a couple other bars jist across the river, those are walking distance. Hill's Cafe further down S. Congress (cab ride) used to do a country music series on I think wednesday nights or something but I'm not sure if they're doing that now. I think it's a summertime thing.
Awesome-thanks! Right there is plenty of stuff to check out. Any nice hotels you can recommend in that area?
