    But here's a great history of the Bazaar I found while looking for someAWHthing else.

    The Bazaar was all over South Autin, even in the Opry house for a few years after the AWH closed; it was in Cherry Creek over on Stassney, like the strip center, then the Music Hall now it's upscale etc.

      Soap Creek on Congress.
      It was out on the road and the Opry house was back on Academy, basically half block off Congress. They were in walking distance. Willie changed the name to "Opera" house after the lawyers called a few years into it all.

      Townes at Soap Creek- I thought I knew how to use Photobucket but it won't line up.

          I don't think I ever went to that location, but I seem to remember that they were there for a short time between the Bee Cave location and far north.

          However, I don't think that is the same location as what became the Opry House.  1201 would be about a block north of the Continental Club.  Right?  The Opry House would have an Academy address.

          I still don't remember exactly where Soap Creek went when it moved far north, but I do remember that it moved into the old Skyline Club.
