This is one of the many bars on East 6th Street or as some call it dirty sixth. The Bat Bar gets it name from the many bats that live under the congress ave bridge and you can see the band as it plays from the sidewalk.  The sixth street area which encompases about four block east of IH35 has been a local hot spot for live music and drinking for over 40 years now.  On any Saturday night you will find it full of students, city residence and toursit from all over taking in the live music and other activitys that go on in this area. We were doing this shoot for our clients to take in the night life in downtown Austin and it can be a bit wild at times as while we were there a guy was thrown out of a bar three time and they finally sat on him till the cops got there so expect to see all kinds of thing along with some interesting people.
