Austin may have its fair share of sports bars, but it only has one Haymaker—well, technically two, if you count the outpost they have in a terminal of Austin-Bergstrom International (which we don’t). The abundance of televisions that cover every available corner of wall space both inside and outside the building serve as a visual representation of Haymaker’s promise to their patrons—whatever game is on that day, it is sure to also be on at Haymaker. Those screens are paired with a rotating selection of 40 taps, which boasts some of the best pulls to be found in the Lone Star state. And, since they serve drink specials every day of the week, you’re bound to get more buzz for your buck—savings you can then invest into an order of Haymaker’s signature poutine.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating or order online for pick-up.
If you’re looking for one of the best sports bars in Austin, Haymaker should be at the top of your list. TVs and large projection screens cover the space like wallpaper, broadcasting everything from football to international soccer to horse-racing. Other attractions include a ridiculous number of beers on tap (40!) plus a roster of gameday-appropriate comforts like Poutine, Italian Hoagies, and Patty Melts. And if you want to bring your dog to help cheer on your team, hit the pet-friendly patio, complete with its own set of flatscreens so you never have to miss a touchdown. Pro tip: Check their website to see which daily drink special will be running before you visit.
