Just over a decade in, the Mohawk, located at the northern end of the Red River District, has become one of the most reputable places for musicians of various genres to perform and likewise one of the most loved locales among live music fans. The latter is in part due to the main outdoor area’s multi-tiered design: While braver, rowdier fans flood the ground level in front of the stage, others seeking a more laid-back feel can occupy three balcony levels including a rooftop patio and a bird’s-eye, side-stage viewing space. Things can get a little rough on cold, windy nights up on those elevated platforms, but thankfully we don’t get too many of those around these parts. And there’s always the home-y, fireside bar and indoor stage if one ever needs a break from the elements. Even when there’s no live music, the Mohawk is mainstay happy hour haven.

Awesome music venue on Red River. There are multiple tiers of outdoor decks that are perfect for watching a show on their outdoor stage. I had the chance to attend Tumblr's SXSW party, but unfortunately didn't stick around long enough to see DJ Questlove perform a surprise set. Great venue nonetheless.
