1. Biggio's
Sports Bar

Look out for: Private booths and reclining leather chairs
Paying homage to Astros legend and Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, this two-level sports bar is spittin’ distance from
Minute Maid Park. The sleek spot antes up your sports-watching experience with private viewing booths, leather recliners, and screens at every angle, including two HD 30-footers. Get comfortable and stay a while with local drafts, craft cocktails, and game day grub like Ball Park Pretzels with beer mustard and queso or bison chili-smothered Dirty Dogs.

2. Memorial Park

Look out for: A golf course, sport fields, and in-park burger joint
A century old, Houston’s Crown Jewel Park spans nearly 1,500 acres, earning it a spot as one of the largest urban parks in the United States. It got a $70 million donation from the Kinder Foundation back in 2018, accelerating its Ten-Year Plan to include awesome things like the revamped Sports Complex, with a multi-use sports field for rugby, lacrosse, soccer, and more; two ballfields; and four sand volleyball courts. That’s in addition to its tennis courts and croquet courts, hike and bike trails, and top-rated 18-hole golf course complete with a driving range and on-site Beck’s Prime (look, you’ve earned yourself that burger).


3. Christian’s Tailgate Bar & Grill
Sports Bar

Look out for: Wall-to-wall TVs and the city’s finest one-pound burger
Each location of this fan-favorite local mini-empire has its special touch, whether that be the buzzy, party-hard atmosphere on White Oak or the Karaoke-loving Midtown locale. More importantly, every outpost is dripping in flatscreens and you can score awesome deals thanks to daily happy hours and game day promotions.

4. Root Memorial Square

Look out for: Clutch City’s finest pickup basketball games
Sitting just across from Toyota Center, this square-block park sports a sunken basketball court that’s one of the coolest in the city. Balls can be checked out to play under the watch of Rockets legends, and there’s a pavilion to grab some shade and cool off after (or during) the game.

5. Home Run Dugout

Look out for: The chance to hit a homerun in your favorite ballpark.
Relive your Little League years (but with beer this time) as you hit the simulated batting cages at this Texas-born good time. The concept was born to give everyone the chance to experience “the greatest feeling in sports”—hitting a homer. In addition to an in-house restaurant and bar, the 46,000-square-foot venue has 12 indoor Batting Bays, with a ground-up soft-toss pitching machine, state-of-the-art pitching technology, and augmented reality allowing fans to hit in any MLB stadium, including Houston’s own Minute Maid Park.

6. Pitch 25 Beer Park

Look out for: Loads of strategically placed TVs and an indoor soccer pitch.
Sitting just blocks from Shell Energy Stadium—home of the Houston Dynamo and Houston Dash, the city’s first full-fledged soccer bar is the ultimate soccer fan destination. You’ll find flatscreens broadcasting futbol matches from around the globe (and American football games, too), plus 100 taps, an outdoor beer garden, and sweet stuff like an indoor soccer pitch and sports leagues, viewing parties and trivia nights, and ax throwing.
