When you hear people talking about Sixth Street as the Austin equivalent of New Orleans’s Bourbon Street, the area they’re usually referring to is the downtown stretch of Sixth that’s east of Congress Avenue and west of Interstate 35. On “Dirty Sixth,” as it’s known locally, it’s all about good times, with an array of bars beckoning revelers.
