About the Sahara

Sahara Lounge is an inviting Eastside Austin live music venue with a relaxed, eclectic atmosphere. Live shows include Indie, African, Blues, Rock, Country, Swing, Brazilian, Funk and everything in between. Formerly the historic TC's Lounge, the building and decor offer a rich and timeless feel: that of a Texas juke joint with an African twist. The Sahara offers a full bar, drink specials and free parking.

We are a 21 and over venue unless you are with a parent or spouse.
