Description:

Historic Maggie Mae's is a local legend. Maggie Mae's, locally owned and operated since 1978... no visit to Austin is the same without a view from the largest rooftop on Sixth Street. Maggie Mae's boasts several types of entertainment, including a sports bar, complete with big screens for the game, an authentic English Pub suited for conversation, a New Orleans style courtyard beneath the stars, and three different stages outfitted for live music. Maggie Mae's consists of four historic buildings, beautifully restored, which together make for one of the largest entertainment venues downtown. On any given night you may see three different generations of patrons at Maggie Mae's.

Maggie Mae's is the cornerstone for live music in the heart of the Historic Entertainment District. The owners have been committed to offering a venue for Austins multitude of musicians to play their music. Even during the lean years, when other clubs were converting to piped-in house music or deejays, Maggie Mae's still offered live music. Over the course of thirty-two years, that's a lot of live music. Today Maggie Mae's has live music seven nights a week and on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights there are three stages rocking with music.

In 2005 the first phase of remodeling began with the addition of big screen televisions, paint, new furniture, a new Rooftop Deck Bar and a 26 Jumbo Screen on the Rooftop Deck. Additionally, new artwork, which was acquired from a world renowned Austin artist, Robert Hurst (www.adamnfineartist.com) adorns all of the walls. The vibrant colors of Hurst art and the new decor compliment the high energy of the live music and vibe on the stages.

The addition of The Gibson Room and Les Paul Lounge occurred in 2007. They occupy the 5,000 square feet adjacent to the Rooftop Deck on the second level of Maggie Mae's. Gibson is a sponsor of these rooms and has provided custom Gibson and Epiphone guitars, which are showcased on the walls. Guests will also find rare photographs taken by Eddie Kramer (www.kramerarchives.com) and a suite of Robert Hurst paintings portraying iconic guitarist who play Gibson guitars. Bands enjoy playing in The Gibson Room with state-of-the art microphones provided by Sennheiser
