Stumbled across this place after day out at ACL - $5 entrance fee to watch great band. Bar staff very friendly and welcoming. Well worth visiting if staying in this part of Austin.

A very intimate room awaits visitors to the Saxon. Usually several artists play per night, with each requiring a separate admission fee. Whether it is an unknown, up & coming talent, or an old Austin veteran like Bobby Whitlock & CoCo Carmel, you'll be up...More

Great place to hear local musicians. Heard David Grissom at the free 6 pm "geezers show". Have multiple shows most nights. Some free some with cover.

Small dark venue with a low-rise stage. Photos here capture exactly what you get. Sit stage-side at tables, or at the wrap around bar. If you want some Austin music-scene without the Austin music-scene, find your way here. One of the best old roadhouses with...More

The Saxon Pub is one of the best places to see music in Austin. It's a hangout of Austin locals, who usually avoid 6th Street. Very intimate little pub, with some of the best music you will ever hear, up close and personal. Great bar,...More

Great night spot and music in SOCO. Can't go wrong with this venue. Three bands each night and they are always good. Fun crowd and atmosphere. Good service as well.
