Continental Club, Austin

1315 S. Congress Avenue
Austin , Texas
Tel: 512 441 2444's insider take:

Austin's best live-music venue is also one of its oldest, having opened in 1957. The late, great blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan often unleashed his guitar solos here, and the bands—local mainstays and touring acts alike—are usually rootsy rock. The club exudes retro cool, from the vintage roadsters parked out front to the decked-out couples spinning around the postage-stamp-size dance floor. Every Tuesday, R&B diva Toni Price sings along to a guitarist and fiddle player, as she's done for 15 years.
