    Try a game of ping-pong in the upstairs space here. After a heated round or two, you can peruse the art hanging on the walls, and enjoy a cocktail while listening to roots, rockabilly and swing. Read more

    This place was well worth visit. Great music, and atmosphere. I'd highly encourage anyone to stop in and have drink or two while listening to some great live music. Staff quite friendly, too.

    Since 1957 this Austin musical institution has showcased everything ranging from rockbilly, to country Latino, while embracing its local roots.

    As Austin as bongs and ping pong, the Continental Club is a haven for bikers, hot mamas, New Age greasers, and tourists alike, hosting local rip-roarers and touring roots-rockers.

    If you lack dreads and gauges and all things "weird" then you should leave immediately. You'll get "shushed" and ostracized. Not worth it. Plus the beer selection is hipster and lame.

    Kat Hargrove · January 30, 2013
  • Danielle Lazier S.

    Iconic Austin. Go by for a stiff drink and live music.

  • Whip Hand C.

    Gotta catch James McMurtry and Jon Dee Graham Weds night. Best Dan show EVER. They make everyone else look like amateurs (no offense intended.)

    This is a great place to watch live music, but even better in the front room. This club also gets non-mainstream artists. Recently it hosted the composer of the School House Rock music.

    Saw the Hay Bales. Music was good but an announcement from the lead singer that only mixed couples were welcome to dance was extremely disappointing.

    We just tried to see the Junior Brown 7:30 show with the kids. No go under 21. We should have known.

    This place used to be a toxic smoke-filled ashtray with great music. Now it still has legendary Austin music -minus the secondhand smoke.

    This is where we go to see a great rockabilly show. Don’t be surprised if the staff, patrons, and vintage cars outside match the aesthetic. We recommend bringing cash since they usually charge cover. Read more

    Choosing to shoot pool during a band's set will still keep you within earshot of the sweet music. For a sweet dessert afterward, dip by Amy's Ice Cream for... well, ice cream.
