If New Orleans is the cradle of jazz, Austin is known as “live music capital of the world” and it’s no wonder with all the amazing artists that made their start exactly here, such as Janis Joplin and the Dixie Chicks. This city, that likes to describe itself as “weird” provides some of the best nightlife in America.
The joints with live music, cool restaurants and irresistible nightclubs are aplenty in Austin, you just need to take a pick. For an authentic Texas feel, head to Broken Spoke and bust a few moves to the sounds of honky-tonk. Enjoy live music and great food, all at one place. For a more laidback atmosphere, try Continental Club and relax with the sound of live country music. Make sure to check out the legendary Coyote Ugly where bartenders dance on the bar, and maybe even get up there and dance a bit yourself.
