Tailgating Done Right
For the third year Texas Athletics is bringing Texas fans a free tailgate-meets-State Fair scene at Bevo Blvd. Come early to enjoy food trucks, giant LED screens, a ferris wheel and carnival games, drink specials and live music at the Longhorn City Limits stage on the LBJ Lawn. Bevo Boulevard will be open three hours before kickoff on home game days.
Don your UT colors and hit the hardcore Scholz Garten tailgate scene. Visit the Beir Garten's Texas Tailgarten for a pre-game pint, weinerscnitzel, bratwurst, old-fashioned Texas barbecue and plenty of live music.
Walk the University of Texas parking lots for a street-party-style tailgate scene. You'll find fans of all generations tossing the pigskin, slinging back Shiners and tending to smoking grills starting as early as 7 a.m. on game days.
Watch the Game Here
Considered one of the top sports bars in the country, Pluckers satisfies ravished fans with delicious wings and non-stop sports. The Tavern, built in 1916, is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the game. The German-influenced sports bar has 50 (yes, 50) high-definition screens so you can catch the action from any angle.
Cheer on your favorite team, from West Campus at Cain & Abel's. On game days, you'll find every booth, table and practically any available surface packed with students sipping from mason jar cocktails and enjoying ice cold beers. Put your horns up from the shores of Lake Austin at Abel's on the Lake. Chow down on Texas-style brunch items and flutes of mimosas as TVs blast football games in the background.
With 82+ beers on tap, Irish Whiskey towers and delicious food, Jack & Ginger's Irish pub in Domain NORTHSIDE is a favorite place to relax and catch hours of football every weekend. Large flat-screens cover the walls at Little Woodrow's, so your favorite team is never too far from view.
The bustling scene at Posse East will make you scream "hook 'em horns" in no time. Order some tacos y mas at this diner-style bar that's been around for over 40 years. Grab a pitcher and throw some darts at the Crown & Anchor Pub. Choose from more than 30 taps and 100 bottles/cans, ciders and wine and nosh on their famed burgers, cheese fries and nachos.
