I'll first say that 6th really isn't my scene, if I want to go grab drinks with friends I go down to Rainey Street like the other adults. 6th is a must see for tourists and college kids. if you are there in the day it's nothing but panhandlers, at night it's not much different it's just louder, after the...

Sixth Street is home to live music and great food. The streets have been barricaded so you can walk safely. Pete's Dueling Piano Bar is my favorite place to hear live music.

This is a good place for bar hopping, food, and music. There are so many places for drinks and food. Mostly college students here, so it can get pretty rowdy here after they have a few drinks. This place draws a lot of people so it can get very crowded.

Walked this area in the evening and enjoyed seeing the sights. Plenty to choose from for anyone. Some bars were very busy, others not so much. Totally enjoyed Pete's Dueling Pianos. It's a must. Good amount of seating on floor and in the balcony. Wonderful entertainers. 6th Street is blocked off so no need to worry about traffic. Good presence... More

The only good think i could see about 6th Street was that you could hear all kinds of music everywhere you went. However, in every place we went, it was too loud. The street seemed really dirty too.

Awesome to hear live music through open doors,windows, and patios.A ton of competition so beer prices are very reasonable.Only downside is the number of panhandlers and homeless on this street.More of a twenties crowd.

It was rainy, during the day and the homeless people were sleeping in the door ways, no bands were playing but there were still alot of people walking around and in some of the bars watching the basketball games. I would like to go back sometime during the evening hours to see/hear some of the bands playing!
