One of the first streets surveyed in Austin, Sixth was originally known as Pecan Street. During the day, shops, restaurants and historic buildings are the main attraction, but by night, the street becomes festive with live music, shows and special events. On Friday and Saturday nights, the blocks are closed to automobile traffic for an all-out street party. Stop by for a beer or a show, or just enjoy watching the eclectic nightlife of Austin.

Creado por Vince Hanneman, el lugar convierte artículos viejos y desechados en una obra de arte estructural en constante evolución. Cuenta con llantas viejas, tapas, todo tipo de desechos de metal, tubos y más, Hanneman convierte el espacio de varios niveles en un patio de recreo para adultos y niños por igual. Sorprendentemente, el lugar es invisible desde la calle de enfrente, sólo se puede ver al entrar en el patio trasero.
