Austin Nightlife and Bars

As you might expect for the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin nightlife is vibrant and active. Austin's bars and 200+ live music venues provide plenty of entertainment options after the Texas sun goes down. The town's laid-back population with lots of college students and young singles and couples ensure the bars are packed every night of the week. Although downtown's Sixth Street and Warehouse District are the most well-known centers of Austin nightlife, there are cool places on the south and east sides and other parts of the city as well.
