The Saxon Pub is one of the best places to see music in Austin. It's a hangout of Austin locals, who usually avoid 6th Street. Very intimate little pub, with some of the best music you will ever hear, up close and personal. Great bar,...More

Great night spot and music in SOCO. Can't go wrong with this venue. Three bands each night and they are always good. Fun crowd and atmosphere. Good service as well.

Chill spot for always live music. Heard Patrice Pike and band really put on a show. Beer was cold and service was good.

Cosy, friendly, great music venue. Wish Tommy Elskes played there more! Pizza available next door. Convenient to downtown.

Saxon Pub is a staple bar in Austin that gets really good bands. The night I was there we saw White Ghost Shivers, an eclectic band performing its own compositions rooted in American music from the 1920's-40's, great musicians all. Beer was $4.50 and drinks...More

Myself and 6 others heard about a great band playing at the Saxon Pub. We decided to check it out. It is a nice honky tonk type bar. Limited space for seating but definitely space for dancing. They also have a back room area which...More

We paid $20 each for two advance tickets online, plus a $7 fee, so we were committed to seeing the 9:00 show on a Friday night. Since it was general admission seating we wanted to get there early. We finally got through all the traffic...More

Great dive venue with great bands and amazing sound. Smell of bar rot, smoke, and great vibes. Definitely encourage you to bring cash, however, as running a tab requires you to hand your credit card to the bartender and they keep. Not accusing anyone of...More

Saxon is known for the music, and it will not disappoint! Live music every night of the week. Smallish place with stage right next to the bar. There is supposed to be a food truck service, but "the guy was not working" the night I...More

Had a great time at Saxon Pub earlier this month. Stopped by for some music and a beer (or two) and really enjoyed it. Old, dark and very comfortable. Especially enjoyed John Gaar and his band.

We rented a condo through Airbnb in another part of town too. Sorry. Check out VRBO and Airbnb and see if you can find something close. Or go to hotels finding sites and I think you can put in areas you want within a... More
