    For more than 15 years Cedar Street Courtyard has been perfectly pairing two of Austin's favorite indulgences: Live nightly music and flowing libations.

    One of my Favorite Down Town Hot Spots. If you want to catch the Spazmatics on Wed... Be sure to get there Early. Get very crowded around show time... 9 pm

    Drinks are expensive.....grab a few dollar drinks on 6th street, then headed to Cedar street for the live music after. Spazmatics are great!

    Don't bother - run by racist goons masquerading as 'security' and owners who endorse the thuggery. So many other awesome choices in the ATX!

    Upon leaving, try not to stumble up the steps, trip, and slam into that big metal piece of "art" on the sidewalk.

    Chances are you're not getting into Cedar Street show without a badge at this point. Both lines are huge and no one has been let in yet

    Despite the famous Austin live music staples (Antone's, Continental Club, Zona Rosa), Cedar Street I think is the funnest place for working stiffs with families who don't get out much. Great bands, go Read more

    I have been to lots of events here, its a nice spot, big middle outside area with stage and bars on either side.

    Yet again over zealous security. They denied people restroom access right after the show. Ushered every one out without allowing access to a restroom. Very uncool.Possibly illegal as we were patrons.
