This is a spot to visit! Just head down 6th street until you hear the music you like or you see a bar with a fun vibe. Fun place. I think finding an 2nd story outdoor type bar like The Blind Pig would be a perfect place to soak in the atmosphere and people watch. Have fun!

6th street has really changed throughout the years, but so has everything else. I recommend if this is something you have to see then do it during the day. Its mostly little bars and a few stores. This is where to go for some great live music. After dark make sure you car is off the streets or you will... More

Locals fill the streets and the bars at night. Food trucks line up with unique food offerings. A bar for everyone. Music rocks the night. Old classy buildings repurposed into one of a kind purveyors of liquor in all its forms. But underrated is walking 6th Street during the day. Many bars open early and you can sit high up... More

This area was a downer for me though I imagine that maybe in my 20s this would be a bit more tolerable. Homeless people were everywhere begging for money and the majority of the bars are super dive-y, borderline dilapidated and not much to look at. Do not go here during the day unless you are looking to be depressed.... More

Lots of mediocre bars and drunk college students. Add in an excessively large homeless population and you get 6th St. There are a few great restaurants and bars, but they're surrounded by a mess.

If I am not mistaken we had a lot of fun during our first visit to 6th Street! Just kidding, we remember it... mostly. They had the streets shut down when we were here on a Saturday night so there was no fear of cars or crossing the street. A lot of really good people watching and a ton of... More

Its great once you're in a bar. The bars themselves are fantastic and met some great people down 6th. I think i was asked about 9 times for money just walking down the street through.
