Established in 1975 by the late Clifford Antone, Antone's is an iconic blues and R&B venue located in downtown Austin. Over the past 40 years, Antone's has brought Austin a variety of blues and R&B musicians from across the country including greats like B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, and Buddy Guy, as well as help develop local talent including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughn, Bob Schneider, Gary Clark Jr. and countless others. In 2015, the historic brand was restored and a new team brought the iconic venue back to the downtown Austin landscape with a renewed focus on once again making Antone's the "Home of the Blues."

It was not very busy the night we went there but the blues band was very good. The Service was fast and friendly. The drinks were good and tasty.

Just caught Billy Gibbons and Jimmy Vaughan at Antone's. This IS the place to catch the blues in Austin. If this music is your thing, do not miss it.

Fun spot for live music. Small room so every seat is good. Chairs on 2 sides, small dance floor, and room for standing. $7 cover charge. $9 cocktails. Fun spot.

Antone's has always been one of my favorite Austin music venues and I like the new location as much as the old one. Great bar and stage area. Highly recommend!

My husband and I want to see Eric Tessmer at Antone's. Our first experience at the legendary venue downtown Austin. Its a must do is you live or visit here as it has been around since the BB King days. However, be prepared to stand the entire time. Only seating is 10 bar stools on each side of the venue... More

We were lucky enough to see Gary Clark,Jr. Here! $20.00 tickets. Had to wait in line, but worth it. Great old club. Limited seating so get there early if you want or need to sit. Recently re-opened. Nice venue. It gets crowded but everyone is having a good time!

Stopped at Antone's on a Friday evening around 5:00 and they had a $5.00 cover for a blues band which was already playing. They were fantastic. Not a lot of seating anytime and the venue is not huge but it was really entertaining. We sat at the bar and their margaritas were tasty. We really enjoyed the music. Clean and... More

Antone's has recently been refurbished. I don't know what it was like before but now it's great. Nice bar, large dance floor, comfy chairs and clean toilets. There are several acts on each night and entrance prices are reasonable as are the drinks, especially during Happy Hour.
