A staple watering hole in the Red River entertainment district since opening in 2004, Side Bar isn’t foremost a music venue – except for occasional back patio concerts, most prominently the hyper-local Uncle Doug’s Chili Dog Fest on the Sunday of SXSW. Still the 7th and Red River dive remains favored drinking turf for musicians, scenesters, and off-duty venue workers, boasting a world-class jukebox and a Tom Waits mural painted on the interior wall.
