    Parish is one of those venues that defines Austin's music scene. One of the best acoustics in town and lots of varieties every week. A must-see venue during the big festivals like SXSW

    One of the best venues in Austin. Good sound & a nice interior space. But the sloped wooden walls are a bit odd.

    Awful venue. Came for Julianna Barwick on the 2nd floor and can't hear a thing. Floor and walls are shaking because there's a bar on the 1st floor. Worst audio experience ever. Won't be coming back.

    Drinks here tend to be more expensive than you'd pay for at any other venue, so pay attention to your tab or else you'll burn a hole in your wallet.
