    AWESOME venue for a show! A wide selection of great places to see the stage! Hit the rooftop bar for a drink and to cool off during the hot TX summer. Inside bar downstairs has a cool atmosphere

    Austin is amazing in the amount of incredible innovative bands that play every night in every genre you can think of. Mohawk is a large venue with multiple stages, spaces and plenty of room to chill

    The coolest midsized venue in town hosts the cream of the indie crop with two stages, multiple bars, and a wrap-around balcony and patio outside.

    My favorite venue in Austin! Intimate outdoor concert space, shows often sell out so get tickets ahead of time!

    Man what a venue. Not a bad vantage in the house….that’s hard to find. Great staff and solid drinks offered to boot

    A neat multi-level music venue that features some great artists. Go for happy hour on a "Funk and Soul Friday" from 5pm-8pm and enjoy some good tunes. On these days, there is no cover, but it is 21+.

    Hands down coolest music venue in Austin. Head outside to the main stage or up the stairs to the rooftop deck that looks over the stage. If you want a more intimate experience head to the back stage.

    A local favorite, and with two balconies, indoor and outdoor stages, and a diverse and consistent lineup of extraordinary local bands, there’s no question as to why.

    Not only great for seeing live shows; they also have a great Happy Hour (funk & soul fridays, anyone?!). Grab some drinks & don't feel bad sitting in the corner...big bear makes great company!

    Great music can always be found at this bar - it is a bit off the beaten path by about two blocks, but make sure to check it out when you are in town!

    Great balconies to view band. Good beer selection including local craft beers. Great place to see a show.
    RCRD LBLMarch 8, 2011
    The balcony is where it's at for the best stage views - and the best company. Plus, you can keep your finger on the Red River pulse without missing a beat from the talent.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. There's a staircase that leads to three rooftop decks with views of the stage. Go to the highest one, perched under a big oak tree. Read more

    An awesome outdoor venue for concerts and booze, especially during SXSW. We enjoyed the Ning party in 2011 and will be back for sure!

    Two levels of concert stages, and one inside. If you see a line outside, wait, it's worth it. Friendly staff and fun times!

    You can bounce from two stages and even sneak upstairs for an aerial view of the show. We like the fact that no matter how crowded it gets, there’s never a wait for the bathroom. Read more

    We will have these screen printed posters at our show on Sunday January 5. Austin is like a second home to use, and while we missed Fun Fun Fun Fest this year, can not wait to get back to The Mohawk.

    A multi-level, indoor/outdoor venue featuring some of the best up-and-coming musicians around. Be sure and visit The Green Room - it's open 'most' of the time.

    Don't leave before posing for a picture with the bear. He's friendly until you spill beer on him. Don't spill beer on the bear.

    The multiple, surrounding upper levels are cool, but the best seat and sound is down below.

    To access the secret VIP lounge, knock 12 times on the wall by the restroom. If no one answers that means it’s full.
