What you hear is true. With vibrant entertainment and culture, inspiring cuisine and stunning outdoor settings, Austin lets you create a soundtrack all your own. We're home to more than 250 music venues and a vibrant arts scene. So take a look around, and put the Live Music Capital of the World® on your playlist.
Mohawk has been around since 2006 but is already an Austin legend and institution. It shows up on all the lists of best music venues in the city, and for good reason. Mohawk books all kinds of acts, from pop to country, metal to rap Mohawk holds no prejudice when it comes to music. Local musicians share the stage with national touring acts and the spirit of artistic collaboration and musical appreciation permeates the entire space.
Music is the end all be all at Mohawk, but the staff is friendly and the pours are strong. If you are looking for hoity toity quiet space to sip your cocktail, this is probably not the venue for you. If you are looking for a space that puts a premium on the music and does everything to improve that experience, then the Mohawk is the place.
In many ways Mohawk is emblematic of Austin itself. Reverent of its rich musical past but dedicated to pushing its future forward in a uniquely authentically Austin way.
