Best Place To Sit Out The Five O'clock Traffic

Continental Club

Maybe it's that "continental" ambience that comes through in the late afternoon, when the sun filters through the smokey windows and lights those kitschy scenes painted on the walls, or maybe it's just the comfy feeling of familiarity, but Steve Wertheimer has created the quintessential South Austin nightspot. And after work, it's a fine place to socialize and hear some good music. Toni Price on Tuesday afternoons is a must-see for any music fan, as is veteran bluesman Erbie Bowser. Thursdays feature the burgeoning collaboration between Evan Johns and Charlie Burton. Good rockin' this evening.
