It was our first time on 6th avenue so we where looking for a good bar, we walked a few blocks and ended in Darwin's bar, there was a live band playing good songs so we decided to stay, then another band started playing they played awesome music, so conclusion: good music, ambiance and cozy place. recommended

Great staff and exceptionally good food. We were very impressed with total visit. Even bought the T-Shirt. Busy at night but wonderful during the day when less noisy and busy.

We were looking for a good sports bar where we could watch the game and stumbled on this place. Lots of sports bars on 6th street but this one had good draft beer, it was quiet enough to hear the game, and great food- we even had front row seats in front of a big screen tv. The fish and... More

We stopped here for a quick drink while we were waiting for check in time at the hotel. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. The place looked nice and it being the middle of the afternoon was not too busy. I did see a stage so I assume there is live music later in the evening, they also had... More

While we got derailed from going to Orlando due to hurricane Matthew, we figured we'd make the best of it and stay the weekend in Austin. While walking 6th street, we wandered in due to the Owner telling us he could make any drink. He was super friendly and did a great job getting us and others seated. It was... More

For Austin being a live music capital, this is the place to go! Great local bands and excellent bar specials. Cheap drinks and pitchers.

Friendly owner greeted us at entrance. Described the food options so we went in. Live three piece music was good. Volume was a little loud, but it was early with few patrons to absorb the sound. Gyro was good. Chips were just ok. I did not care for the house red wine. I suggest to be specific on brand. Waitress... More

This pub is busy and on the main strip in downtown Austin. Lots of wood - door and full bar. Good service but drinks can be slow in coming if there are a lot of customers but that's to be expected. Good selection of bract beers, local beers, and IPA's. Good place to visit.

My wife and I wandered in here while walking around in downtown Austin. We had a couple of beers while listening to a trio of really talented musicians and these guys were really making some good sound. An older gentleman was the drummer and then there was a bass player who was awesome along with a younger, left-handed guitar player... More

My guy and I were driving through Austin while on our way to another destination. We decided to stop in Austin for dinner, and were hoping to find somewhere fun to eat, even though it was pretty late. We walked down 6th street, and most places had stopped serving food for the night. Darwin's had not. They also seemed affordable... More
