When the best nationally touring headline comics come through Austin, they play at Cap City. All the comics you enjoy for five sanitized minutes on Leno or Letterman can let their hair down and go nuts when they play live, and the spacious stage and showroom provide a relaxed, comfortable setting. Cap City also nurtures the local scene, hosting open mikes and special shows for up-and-coming Austin talent. With a full bar and good pub grub, Cap City is your one-stop entertainment shop, seven nights a week.
