Boomerz is one of the most casual nightclub and bar one could ever be at. The interiors of this fine establishment are quite welcoming. A place where you will encounter a mixed aged friendly crowd over 21 years of age of course, and the staff here too are bankable and attentive. The music here is quite electrifying while the lighting fixtures are smartly placed. The dance floor is fairly big. This slightly dim lit bar also has karaoke nights and live music. It's also a sports bar having around eight pool tables, televisions mainly displaying sports channels, arcade tables and so on. There's lots in store for you at this bar.
Evangeline's Cafe gets its name from a Longfellow poem and you're forgiven if you're surprised. True, the stuffed animals and neon beer signs don't say Longfellow but diners don't come here expecting a romantic setting for two either. It's for the food and the live music. The kitchen at Evangeline's holds its own in the cajun and creole department, the signature dishes being the gumbo and the crawfish, both with ample meat and cheese. The cafe features new acts every night and the dancing is sure to help you burn some calories. Ignore the no frills impression that you get when you first walk into Evangeline's Cafe and you're guaranteed to have a good time.

Broken Spoke is a western honky-tonk that was established in 1964 and rapidly became an Austin favorite for country-western dancing.

This dance hall provides an excellent atmosphere for those just learning to two-step or die-hard country fans driving in from the ranch for the weekend. Practice the Polka, Texas Two-Step or the Chicken, and be sure to try the Cotton-Eyed Joe. There is also a restaurant that serves traditional country food like chicken fried steak.

There was a time when music from local musicians was free, and great Southern food was BBQ ed in the park. But those days are gone; the park is now used for concerts and firework celebrations on the Fourth of July. Located near the picturesque Town Lake and across from the old Palmer Auditorium, the venue is usually busy during summer. The name of Auditorium Shores is derived from its location along the shore of Town Lake. You will also find the Town Lake Hike, the Bike Trail, a gazebo and the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue.
This venue, south of the river, is a throwback to the 1950s. Roots rock and country reign supreme in this bar, where one can often find men in leather jackets and classic Cadillacs out front.

Happy hours feature some of Austin's favorite songwriters. The venue has broadened its range of live music to include occasional indie rock.
