C-Boy's Heart & Soul
2008 S. Congress, 512/215-0023
C-Boy’s is the swankiest club in SoCo. Continental Club owner Steve Wertheimer dedicated the venue to C-Boy Parks, who used to run the now-defunct Rome Inn. Opened New Year’s Eve 2013, today it hosts Dale Watson’s Chicken Shit Bingo on the back patio Sundays, while veteran gypsy jazzers 8 ½ Souvenirs hold court Tuesday nights. Muddy Waters’ harmonica legend Paul Oscher lays down the blues Thursdays. The upstairs bar recedes from raucous downstairs goings on in a room modeled after its sister venue just down the street.
