    New owners are incompetent.

    decent enough. Although the stage out back can either get way too hot or way too cold since it's outside.

    It's a bar in Austin. Anyone that's been the Austin knows that's all that needs to be said about that.

    One of the best local spots in Austin for live music and cheap beer. The locals will agree!

    One of the few joints downtown to serve Mickey's Big Mouth.

    Two stages and all styles of music get played here. Worth coming into on a Saturday night. Drinks are affordable too.

    Lone Star is where it's at, y'all.

    This tiny dive has the yin and the yang, ferociously loud music, and a soothing lounge area. It’s a nice stop when you’re hopping from place to place in the Red River Music District. Read more

    Red Eyed Fly is a notorious training ground for new bands in Austin to gain fans. More popular acts get the opportunity to perform on weekends if they attract enough numbers, making a great incentive.

  • Danielle S.

    Haven't had a single good experience at this bar since I was 15. Buncha asshole honkey employees who need to take their asses to gaspipe. There's 2 really nice black dudes who work there but that's it

    Danielle Starry · April 23, 2011
  • Danielle S.

    Did I mention the staff is basura? They think your real ID is fake & accuse your phone in pocket bulge of being a flask. Even when you're 30. (white) Bar tenders are rude & unattentive.

    Danielle Starry · April 23, 2011
  • Danielle S.

    Avoid this place at all cost - even if you're seeing your best friends' band and they know the staff. Sound sucks. Employees are rude. Go to a REAL Austin venue. This place sucks. Spend $ elsewhere!

  • The Wild Honey Pie

    Brooklyn v. The Bay is where it's at on Wednesday and Thursday during SXSW. The Dodos & We Barbarians on Wednesday. Maps & Atlases and Menomena on Thursday!

    Favorite club in Austin. Great live local music and awesome staff. $3 Lone Star.

    Sean Claes · January 8, 2011
  • Isaac L.

    Go to Red Eye Fly and hear some great bands on the back porch. Buy your favorite band of the night a round of Mirror Pond on tap.

    Isaac Linkletter · November 25, 2009

    tell a true story on stage at Fray Cafe

    Shannon Clark · March 16, 2009
  • Carol G.

    Black Joe Lewis and White Denim play on Saturday at 9pm. Two on the rise Austin bands and you can say you saw them when!
