    If you don't know what food to eat, drinks to drink, or music to listen to, that's okay, you can find it all on 6th Street. Can get very crowded, but a blast overall! Not for young kids or folks who don't like crowds.

    Nice to see the nightlife, a little touristy. East 6th is more representative of true Austin culture.

    Historic 6th Street is a must for every tourist that wants to experience Austin nightlife. On Friday and Saturday nights, they block traffic on the street so everybody can walk freely between live music venues and drinking establishments.

    This is the Health Club located at the Hilton Hotel, which I believe is now called Skyline. They have a nice facility with a gym, outdoor pool and hot tub, and treatment rooms, among other things.

    Not that I'm biased or anything... but all kidding aside, Antone's has been a legendary blues club in downtown Austin since 1975. Its founder, Clifford Antone, also founded a record label and was a mentor to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, Charlie Sexton and numerous other musicians. He also opened a record store specializing in blues and roots music, Antone's ...

    People come here to watch the bats fly from under the bridge, but it's a great bridge to even just drive on. Facing the city (north), you see the Austin skyline and the Texas State Capitol Building at the north end of Congress Ave.

    This dive bar along Austin's main drag (and center of SXSW) is famous for its lusty decor, but it also offers a stellar menu of gourmet burgers, waffle fries, and the phenomenal (or phenomenally strange) Guinness Bloody Mary. They've also got tons of specials, including $2.50 Wells and Pints every day from 11:30am to 7pm and Happy Hour prices all ...

    This elegant theater is stage for live and movie performances. Look closely for a hole in the ceiling above the stage where Houdini left his mark during one of his performances.

    Super casual pub that we somehow always end up in when bar hopping. The patio upstairs is good for people watching the Sixth Street crowds. You might event see a lab coat carrying a life-sized stuffed deer during SXSW (I kid you not). Depending on the live act downstairs, you can put in song requests.

    So many events and things do do at the Long Center. Come enjoy a picnic on the lawn, or go to free concerts in the park during the summers at the Long Center. Located just south of downtown and Town Lake, it is a picturesque place and well-loved by locals.

    For 15 years, Cedar Street Courtyard has been combining two of Austin's biggest passions: live music (seven nights a week) and delicious cocktails. The open-aired veranda is the home to several weekly performers, including The Spazmatics, an energetic new wave 80s band, that draws big crowds every Wednesday night. During SXSW, the intimate venue features incredible day shows (free to ...

    This is a fantastic yoga studio, and I believe the first lesson is free. They also have a Blenders and Bowls on-site which is a great place to get a smoothie.

    Library Bar is one of those definitive college experiences for my social group in college. It was the place to be to start your night, especially on a thursday night. It attracts regulars who congregate in the back bar. The drinks are extremely cheap and sometimes it is hard to drive up the $10 minimum on your credit card. The ...
