Location: East Sixth Street, Austin, Texas
The SxSW music and film festival is occurring, so I thought it was a perfect time to profile E. Sixth Street in Austin. The nine-block area of E. Sixth is recognized as the Sixth Street Historic District. Developed as one of Austin’s trade and commercial districts in the late 1800’s, the building styles are two or three-story masonry Victorian commercial architecture. Most structures in the area had already been built by the 1880’s, except the Driskill Hotel (1886), the Scarbrough Building (1910) and the Littlefield Building.
This area of 6th has been a major entertainment district since the 1970’s. There are a multitude of bars, clubs, music venues, restaurants and shopping destinations. I spent many weekends trolling 6th in my UT college days 🙂
E. Sixth St. (known as Dirty Sixth) plays host to a variety of events each year ranging from music and film festivals (such as SxSW) to biker rallies to the Pecan Street Festival.
