The Continental Club opened in 1957. Thirty years later, Steve Wertheimer took over the club as an anchor for the best touring and local Americana, rockabilly, and swing music anywhere. Wednesday nights host the sort of songwriting that put Austin on the map (Jon Dee Graham and James McMurtry), Tuesday happy hours mix sultry jazz, country, and blues (Toni Price), and Monday belongs to homegrown honky tonk (Dale Watson). Other regulars include Sunday country duo Heybale! and the Wagoneers, while outsize talent on its red velvet-backed stage includes Robert Plant and Robert Rodriguez.
