    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.

    My favorite spot in Austin to catch live music. The people who work here are like a family and a great crowd comes in for almost every event.

    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.

    R3MIX Wednesdays is a great monthly event with awesome EDM music. Goes down at the Parish Underground every third Wednesday of the month.

    I challenge you to dislike a place where you can get an ice cold shot of Fireball and a Ruby Redbird for $7.

    Not a bad spot in the place to see a show. Make sure to go to snag a photo from side stage on way to bathroom, pretty rad.

    The sound is phenomenal and shows are always fairly priced. It is perfectly located a floor above the hustle and bustle of 6th Street. Read more

    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.
