We were visiting Austin for the 1st time so quite naturally we went to 6th st. passed this club & noticed this band, the mizzbehavin band WOW!!! There were maybe 10 people & This band was playing like it was a 1000!!! I've never seen a band having so much fun, the bar staff & the female was like a radio Station. The next thing I know The Club was packed like it was a Sat the band was tight, & the vocalist was telling a story, kinda remind me of old school music just don't see that kind of show anymore. The Bar staff was really nice bathrooms were clean seemed new. I only had 1 complaint I wished she had cds I would have bought them all and took them back home, I hope when I come back That band is there! I'm almost sure That lady will be a super star, Well at lease I had a chance to see her for free LOL Awesome Bar truly enjoyed ourselves!!!

The dishonest bartenders stole my blackberry phone and tried to extort me for money. I had my phone and clutch sitting on the bar (stupid in retrospect) when I turned around to do a shot with friends, my clutch was on the bar but my phone was missing.
They showed me my phone and demanded $100 from me. This was after throwing my boyfriend out of their bar on his birthday when he tried to inquire about my ""missing"" phone. I spent most of his birthday crying because I thought my phone with all of my important school and work information was gone forever.
Had to get the police involved. This is a very dishonest establishment. I will NEVER go again. Do not visit this establishment if you do not want your valuables stolen from you.

I am sorry that the the other girl had a bad time Christmas Eve, but I was there and I believe the the story was streched to the point of dishonesty. There was a guy that kept harrassing a girl at the bar. Justin asked her if she was cool, she said she was for awhile. When it got to be too much Justin told him to get out. He should not have said it was for the ""dog excuse"", but maybe he didn't want that guy to know she had complained. The guy kept questioning why he had to leave, I believe Justin may have generically called him a f@g, the same as if he called him an @sshole, but he knew that guy was not gay, he kept bothering that girl. He was a little rough when he pulled him out, nothing considered violent. The police came, talked to Justin and left. He was never arrested. Justin has created an environment of the BMX, punkrock version of Cheers. A great place to get the party started off. I recommend taking a shot ski with your friends. an actual ski with 3 or 4 shots glesses in it. You all gotta go at once and you get one free!! :-)

A few days ago on Christmas eve, I was at the dizzy rooster bar with some friends. At one point, one of the bartenders, named Justin decided to kick my friends out of the bar, for no reason. The bartender tried to say that dogs arent allowed when all night long people had been at the bar with dogs, and my friend had been at the bar for an hour already with the dog.
When my friend asked why, and protested that he had been tipping the bartenders well all night, the bartender came around the bar shouting out homophobic insults towards my friend. He grabbed my friend by the collar and then whipped him down onto the sidewalk outside the bar and badly hurt my friend's knee. My friend never fought back, and was never even physical or even angry towards the bartenders, he was just calmly asking what justified him being thrown out. The irony is that my friend isn't even gay, he was just hanging out with his best friend. About 5 minutes later the police had this bartender Justin in handcuffs, because some people went to the police with what they saw. This bartender had also knocked down a couple innocent people inside the bar, and one girl's hand was bleeding because the bartender asccidently broke a pint glass on her while he was raging. I wasn't thrown out probably because the bartender thought I was a straight girl. While this bar may be friendly towards straight girls, I would never recommend this bar to anyone, gay or straight. This was the worst experience I've ever had in a bar ever, anywhere, and on Christmas Eve on top of it. Stay away if you consider yourself open to all people and races.

Me and my friends always go to the Dizzy Rooster to have a great time. The bartenders are nice and are quick to get your drinks. Especially if you're a female, they will hook you up with free jello shots. (sometimes) :) The music is varied from old school to the latest rap and hip hop. The DJ is so funny and dresses up in a fro wig and 70s theme. Great place to chill and have a couple of drinks with your buddies.

The Dj is named DJ Veg and every once in a while he will get on the bartop in nothing but tight cheeta boxers and sing! It's so funny! They have girls dance on the bar, play a veriety of old school and new songs and have a really great staff. One of the best bars on the street besides the Chuggin Monkey and Thirsty Nickel!
