Welcome to the Rattle Inn website! The Rattle Inn is a bar and live music venue open every evening and located in downtown Austin’s popular West 6th Street District.
The Rattle Inn is a 21+ venue (unless otherwise noted on particular events). A current photo ID is required for entry.
The Rattle Inn is divided into three different bar areas. Our main Rattle Inn bar, Ray’s Backstage housing our stage for live entertainment, and the roof top deck that has an amazing view of Austin’s skyline. Each area has its own stocked bar and can be reserved separately for private events.
We pride ourselves on serving a wide selection of spirits, local craft beer and delicious signature cocktails like the Texas Heat and Ranch Water. The Rattle Inn does not have a kitchen but we typically have bar snacks should you need a small bite.

The Rattle Inn is located in downtown Austin and although we don’t have our own parking lot, we are surrounded by streets full of metered parking spots and pay lots. The closest pay lot is located on the corner of 7th Street and Nueces Street.
Please contact a manager should you have specials needs or questions about venue access. The Rattle Inn does have a full enclosure lift providing access to the roof top deck. Our management team will be happy to assist you and make your visit to our venue as easy as possible.
Our neighborhood does have permanent residents and we ask that all patrons of our venue respect our neighbors when coming and going.
