Austin Night Life

Nightlife: Music, music, music … and food

No surprise here. Nighttime is the right time to be in Austin, where the distorted twang of Telecasters and rootsy voices of an eclectic assortment of singers reverberate through the Texas air. Start on Sixth Street, where you'll encounter some 50 nightclubs offering diverse musical styles and restaurants beckoning with dishes ranging from Tex-Mex to more refined cuisine. You can find more live music at the nearby Warehouse District. An assortment of restaurants and clubs await you in renovated warehouses. Top-quality concert halls, bars and trendy eateries also are located in this area. Antone's Night Club over on Fifth Street is considered Austin's Home of the Blues. Stub's Bar-B-Q features live blues and rock at an outdoor amphitheater and gospel music during a Sunday brunch. Looking for a classic Texas honky-tonk? Scoot on over to the Broken Spoke nightclub. If you're in the mood for some comedy then go to Esther's Follies, a popular place for some two decades. If theater and film are more to your liking, make sure to catch a performance at the Mary Moody Northern Theater. The Zilker Hillside Theater is well known for its outdoor musicals, and Christmas classics and other offerings are featured at the Zachary Scott Theater. You can even enjoy local and touring productions at the State Theatre. Did we mention the Austin Film Festival? Just like Texas, the choices in Austin are big and bountiful.
