Dirty 6th Street is Austin’s Bourbon Street, but with our own twist of weird. They block off the street to cars on the weekend, so it’s always full of people. And Maggie Mae’s, on Dirty 6th, is where we’d send you first. It’s an indoor and outdoor spot with five different bars - you can expect a cover band playing in one room, and a DJ playing all the hits in another. Post up on the balcony so you can watch the action on 6th Street below.
