Rock, country, jazz & blues acts, national & local, are found at this legendary South Congress club.
The legendary Continental Club opened its doors in 1955 and celebrates over 60 years as one the oldest continuously running clubs in all of Austin. It started out as a swanky supper club,Â Â then became Austin's first burlesque club and later became a working man's blue collar bar on South Congress that opened every morning at 7am and eventually grew into one of the premier live music venues presenting bands like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Paul Ray and the Cobras, Joe Ely, Bill Carter and the Blame and many more onstage back in the late 70's thru the early 80's. It continued from '83-'87 as a hotbed for new wave/punk and rock n roll with bands like Social Distortion, The Replacements, The True Believers and many others performing. In 1987, the club was renovated and refurbished to make it as close to it's original 1950s version as possible, including the restoration of the original murals that you see on the walls today. From '87 to the present The Continental Club, now a historical landmark is the premier roots rock, traditional country and blues, rockabilly and garage rock club in the country. Roosevelt "The Grey Ghost" Williams kicked things off New Years Eve 1987 and continued to play regular happy hours. Ernie Bowser, TD Bell and the Blues Specialists followed suit with Friday happy hours and are still playing after 3 decades with the next generation onstage with original member Mel Davis.
