Good venues & randomly good music overshadowed by electric scooters discarded everywhere and anywhere coupled with many homeless/destitute people.

Sixth street is the best for the very young adults but offers dining and music for us all. We visit two music venues on a typical trip to Sixth Street and the music very rarely disappoints. If visiting Austin this is a must place to...More

There is more live music going on in one block here than in the entire Bay Area. At least it seemed that way to this Californian

I spent a weekend in Austin and went to 6th Street two nights in a row. Even now, I don't understand why it's considered so popular. If you like dive bars, this is your place! At 9:00pm on a Saturday night, most of the establishments...More

We have been coming to Austin for over 20 years for the music on Dirty Ol' 6th street... It's worse than ever. The homeless, drunks, panhandlers and street crime is worse than ever. This past summer the City of Austin rescinded laws that limited homeless...More

Its a fun part of Austin Tx. Lots of bars, lots of restaurants, lots of people. Very interesting mix of locals and tourists. Some souvenir shops, but nothing very interesting. It can be quite intimidating as there are a lot of homeless and beggars asking...More

Physically attacked from behind by a bum in broad daylight. Police who responded said 6th Street is a very dangerous area and they can’t do much. We won’t be back.

Whilst there are some reasonable Bars on 6th, for example Easy Tiger, overall the area is over run with homeless people and beggars. There seems to be an entire tent city living under the bridge at one end of the street. During the day its...More

This street is a pit. Dirty 6th street is appropriate name. Dodge homeless who are rather aggressive. Supposed to be good music at night but we were told by area resident/waiter to avoid! I didn’t need to be told.
