Historic Austin

Austin's reputation for Live Music precedes it. Whether you are coming for the big festivals like Austin City Limits Festival (ACL), to catch a gig in a spot like the Continental Club, or want to brush up on your dancing at an old-school boot scoot at the Broken Spoke, Austin has lots to offer.

Austin's Bars & Clubs come in a close second, from those in Central Austin to the quirkier options in East Austin and South Austin & South of Congress.

The performing arts abound at the city's Theatres & Cinemas, as do casual Restaurants.

Public health concerns in 2020 have caused many cancellations and closures, and because the situation is fast changing we suggest you check the status of any attraction, restaurant, bar or venue shortly before visiting. For links to travel advice and updates see our Health section.
