We went on a Monday night and had a great night, friendly staff, excellent music. Lots of men asking you to dance which was fun to try to two step with locals. All in all a great night and great bar.

Cool vibe at the show. Friendly atmosphere and we got to meet Toni Price before the show. She put on a great show with her second generation band. JR and Melissa made us feel at home. I would recommend for folks looking to see a show and participate.

We caught Dale Watson at the Continental Club. Great show with as solid a group of sidemen as you'll see anywhere. Not a lot of seating -- we ended up in the back area -- but a good sound system means you don't miss any of the music. Decor is funky: posters, a wooden carved Elvis, an old Triumph motorcycle...

On a recommendation we went to the Club and sat downstairs. The first band was so dreadful that I left after a couple of minutes to go for a coffee. I then got a message from a friend that the club upstairs had great jazz music. And so it turned out. We danced the night away in a friendly bar... More

If you go to Austin, you HAVE to catch some music - even if it's not your normal thing. We saw Two Tons of Steel at the Continental Club and loved it! Great little venue - right on Congress. Also, I suggest a stop to Amy's ice cream after - right next door and open until Midnight!

$10 cover was ok to see them put on a show and the music and singing was good and varied. Loved the sound! It is an interesting venue that might need a little update - but was fun and a nice way to spend a couple of hours hearing some local music.

Our conference had a private party here. This place has a lot of character. The music was great! Very small venue. Not many places to sit. Very small dance floor. But so cool.

I can't rave more about this place if you want to listen to good music... whole Austin is amazing town for great music but continental is one amazing stop for cheap beer and fantastic tunes...

We decided to visit the Continental Club as several locals told us that we must see this place as it is a great authentic dive bar on South Congress street that draws in locals and visitors. The Continental Club has been an Austin fixture since 1957. It feels old and comfy, but in a good way. The Continental Club is... More
