Great old music venue. Doors open half hour before the show, pay a more than reasonable cover charge and enjoy what Austin is known for Good Music. Grab a beer, listen or take to the dance floor. Enjoy.

Brothers Glenn and Alex are amazing! They light up the room with their energetic blues performance. Backed by the most amazing rhythm guys I'm seen in a long, long time, this act is tight! this act is soulful! and this act should not be missed. Monday evenings from 6:30 to 9. No cover. The Club itself is comfortable, fun, and... More

I was in town on Business, and I love both the Continental Club and getting to see Dale Watson any time I can. If you haven't seen Dale, you simply have to go see him! He's in many ways an unsung Texas legend, though he is getting more visibility lately with the advent of Jimmy Kimmel and SXSW. Continental Club... More

This is a great club for live music. Park nearby on South Congress St. Get there on the early side and you might grab a seat, otherwise, expect to stand. The sight lines are excellent in this small (150 cap.?) club, and the sound is crystal clear, although very loud. But hey, that's rock n roll, right? Everyone on staff... More

We spent a Saturday afternoon here enjoying the music of Bill Kirchen, a terrific guitarist who plays country, Western and rock. The place filled up pretty fast but we had gotten there early and got seats. Several couples were dancing up front and we enjoyed the whole scene. It's an traditional much venue and historic in Austin. Well worth a... More

We greatly enjoyed visiting the Continental Club. Great drink prices and the music and dancing was phenomenal! Shows start after 9, but get there early for a drink and to get a good spot in the front!

What a great place. Only a 100-150 people in this place max (hope you don't mind standing) - so nice to know you can hear great music without out-of-sight ticket prices and nosebleed seating. We had to stand in line for the doors to open because Dennis Quaid and the Sharks were playing but it was worth the wait, and... More

This place was packed. There wasn't a seat available when we first arrived. We stood in the back but could still see the band. We got there around 4pm. Good music, a real western local kind of sound. After an 45 minutes or so the crowd dispersed. We were able to sit at a high top. Great service by our... More

A must see for visitors. Yes, it's a "dive" bar with entertainment. Small venue with limited seating. Purchase tickets online-no hard copies, just receipt. Wait in line to enter and grab one of very few tables. Be prepared to stand for show. Walk up front for standing room only if you want to be on top of band. Loud! Good... More
