Established in 1975 by the late Clifford Antone, Antone’s is an iconic blues 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 B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles, and James Brown, and helped develop local talent like Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Schneider, Gary Clark Jr., and 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.”

I went to Antone's for a show and it was absolutely amazing. Great service at the bar and the performance was incredible.
Pros: The lighting and sounds made it a great experience!
Cons: Guestlist issues at the door but maybe because it was a private/invite show and it was run by the promoter and not the venue.
Such a great classic venue for new bands and old!
