Owner description: City sponsored, multi block party every weekend in downtown Austin. Street is blocked off for pedestrians only around 11:PM. Best pub crawl

We went here to experience the often talked about Austin music scene. What a complete disappointment! While the music we heard from the street may have been good...the 6th street area is disgusting. You will need to ALWAYS be looking down to make sure you don't step in someones puke! The streets and sidewalks are filthy. We saw at least 8 piles of puke. The various bars have people working the sidewalks trying to get you to come in and drink their garbage drinks. The bars were filled with excessively drunk young people college kids. The street is filled with homeless people begging for money and yes...eating food out of the garbage cans! We had hoped to experience a great Austin vibe we heard so much about and listen to some good music...but left completely disgusted!

Pretty crazy. Bachelor party weekend. A blast (from what I remember). Highly recommend bar and club hopping. Be prepared to wait in a long line for cabs and ubers at the end of the night though.

Took a stroll down 6th street. It was ok but nothing special in my opinion. Apparently, south Congress is better these days.

Came here in the morning for some donuts at Voodoo. I get way the locals nickname it the street of bad decisions. Be prepared to get asked for money, food, and anything else you could think of.

We went to both ends of 6th street and it was not for me. In the "party" end I was a little surprised at how little girls were wearing and how trashy the clubs were. The Coyote ugly girls were dancing in ripped nylons, doing shots off each other while guys watched. Other clubs were offering $3 shots - then saw some people puking on the wall. In one club there was a girl dancing in the window that looked like a heroin addict. Thought there would be more live music but there was not. Parking is expensive. Unless you are turning 21, this isn't the place you want to be.
