    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.

    The self proclaimed 'grandaddy of all music venues'. Not unlikely to see Gary Clark Junior amongst the crowd. Very local with the best blues & jazz shows in town.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    Walked down SoCo on a Sunday afternoon. Heard the sweetest twang from The Continental Club. Popped in to find Redd Volkaert playing free happy hour shows. Only in Austin. Wow.

    Hankerin' for some celeb-spotting? Continental Club boasts them almost every weekend, along with some of the best live music and happy hours in Austin.

    The Granddaddy of all local music venues, the Continental Club has enjoyed a coast-to-coast reputation as the premiere club for live music in Austin since 1957.

    If you’re into live music, you’ve got to hit up The Continental Club, self-professed granddaddy of all local venues, which has been rocking socks off since 1957. – Jason, our Homesick Austinite

    Great if you want to dance but stick with the Elephant Room if you want to mellow out and listen to great music.

    No matter who's playing -- though Alejandro Escovedo's traditional Sunday night gig is preferable -- you gotta pay respects to this classic honky tonk heavy-drinkin'/rockin' establishment.

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

    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.

    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.

    Johnny Cash lookalikes on stage, 75 year-old Texans straight from a Cohen Brothers movies, and 25 y.o. local girls dressed like it's 1924. Best Texan flavor you can get in Austin!
