Film Alley Bastrop

You can throw your crew a spectacular Big Game party at Film Alley Bastrop. You can watch the game in their full bar of course, but that’s just the beginning. There are 50+ arcade games, 16 bowling lanes, 4 pool tables, and 8 theatres with first-run movies to choose from. There’s a full kitchen along with traditional concessions, too, so other than a place to sleep and a shower, there’s little reason to leave and lots of reasons to stay and play here.

602 Brewing Company

Immerse your game day in good ‘ole Southern comfort at 602 Brewing Company. Promising to be nothing short of homemade heaven, it’s the perfect place to kick back, watch the game and chow down on their Southern cuisine with a Cajun flair. You can count on craft beers, wines, and their signature cocktails too. Located in an old building built in 1890, it’s definitely got that rustic Texas charm inside and out, which hits us just about right here in Bastrop.

Old Town Restaurant & Bar

Picture the Cheers bar, but in Texas and you’ve got a pretty good idea of the vibe at Old Town Restaurant & Bar. You’ll find it right on Main Street in Downtown Bastrop.

The East 40

If you’d just like to find a great party on game day, then head over to The East 40. Part dance hall, market space, event venue, and sports bar, there’s always a good time going on there. They’ll totally have the game on and you can even throw in a game of cornhole or pool while you’re there. They’re open late too, if you find that you’re having too much fun to head home. No mixed drinks, but they do sell beer, wine, sodas, and margaritas.
