One of the first streets surveyed in Austin, Sixth was originally known as Pecan Street. During the day, shops, restaurants and historic buildings are the main attraction, but by night, the street becomes festive with live music, shows and special events. On Friday and Saturday nights, the blocks are closed to automobile traffic for an all-out street party. Stop by for a beer or a show, or just enjoy watching the eclectic nightlife of Austin. After the bars close at 2a, this can be a dangerous place to hang out alone.

Some call it a bar, while some refer to is as music venue; Rattle Inn combines the best of both the worlds for its guests. With three on-site bars to choose from the variety of libations on offer here is certainly unparalleled. And, though it doesn't have a restaurant, it serves excellent munchies and short eats. Apart from the main stage, the Rattle Inn also has a rooftop area that opens up to the views of the entire city. However, the highlight of the place is the gigs hosted here; this live music venue-cum-bar delivers the best of performing artists/bands, and every show is loved by one and all. Please note that all its shows allow entry only to patrons who are 21 years of age and above unless otherwise mentioned. For gig guide and venue hire, call ahead.
