Great place with 2 live music stages !!

We offer the very best in live music 7 nights a week !!

Come by and see us at The Sidewinder.

The Sidewinder is a multimedia dual-stage music venue, event space and bar located in the Red River Music District of downtown Austin, Texas.

We pride ourselves on being a live music venue run by musicians for musicians in the “Live Music Capital of the World,” and while live music makes up a majority of the events we host throughout the year, we are fully capable of turning one or both of our rooms into something appropriate for each different event.

We have done music festivals, wedding receptions, wine tasting events, corporate events, movie premieres, DJ performances, fine art installations and much more.

Both rooms have built in stages, state of the art PA systems, lighting systems, furnished greenrooms, stage side storage areas and built in and covered merch areas.

Exceptional live music venue. The Sidewinder is one of the cleanest, well managed live music clubs in Austin. Patrons have the option of hanging out in the indoor lounge or watching the live music on the back patio/stage area. The beer is cold, and the pool tables are level.
