East Sixth Street

Hotels near East Sixth Street, Austin, United States .

While also the name of a historic street in Austin, East Sixth Street commonly refers to the heart of the city’s entertainment district. Lined with stores, restaurants, bars, and live music venues, East Sixth Street is in large part the reason that Austin is commonly known as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” The approximate boundaries of the district are Seventh and Fouth Streets on the north and south, and I-35 and Congress Avenue to the east and west. Formerly known as Pecan Street (therefore sometimes referred to as Old Pecan Street), much of East Sixth Street is closed to traffic from Thursday to Sunday, turning the street into a pedestrian mall, and allowing people to easily wander from one bar, music venue, or restaurant to another. East Sixth Street plays host to countless special events and festivals each year, including the world-famous Austin City Limits music festival and South by Southwest film and music festival.

While the attractions of East Sixth Street are too numerous to list, a few must-sees include Stubbs Bar-B-Q for live music and Texas barbeque, the Congress Avenue Bridge, where one of the largest urban colonies of bats in the world emerge nightly at sunset, and the Alamo Drafthouse Austin. Nearby hotel accommodations include the Hilton Austin, Courtyard Marriott Austin Downtown/Convention Center, InterContinental Stephen F. Austin, and the Driskill Hotel.
