Game of Thrones-mania continues with only two more episodes left before the fantasy television series ends on Sunday, May 19. With that, Austin bars and restaurants are creating spaces for Austinities of all house and queen allegiances to enjoy. Seeking perfect silence? A barful of friends? Trivia? There’s something for everyone.

The Native
807 East 4th Street, East Austin
8 to 11 p.m.

The boutique hostel encourages costumes, drinks, and revelry during its GoT watch parties, but complete silence during the actual episode. There are two rooms with screens too.

Nickel City
1133 East 11th Street, Central East Austin
7 to 10 p.m.

What better way to take in the political machinations than with a scotch tasting from Johnnie Walker’s themed line? Nickel City’s got it covered. Purchase tickets ahead of time to reserve a seat for these viewings, but there’ll also be remaining flights for sale at the door.

Darcy’s Donkey
1608 Barton Springs Road, Zilker
7 to 9 p.m.

The Irish pub and restaurant lets people catch up by screening both the previous week’s episode as well as the new one. Even better: there’s a feast. The GoT-themed menu include dishes like charred Dothraki artichoke hearts, deep-fried turkey leg, pigeon pie (don’t worry, it’s not the one meant for Joffrey), sausages, and Sansa Stark’s favorite lemon cake.

Yard Bar
6700 Burnet Road, Allandale
8 to 10 p.m.

Have you ever fantasized about watching GoT in otherwise complete silence with your direwolf ... er, dog at your side? That’s what the dog park and bar has on tap. Bring canine friends, and pay $5 for a pair of noise-canceling headphones courtesy of Austin Silent Disco, so it doesn’t disrupt or spoil the show for neighbors.

North Door
501 Brushy Street, East Austin
6 to 10 p.m.

Catch up on last week’s episode before showtime at the East Austin venue. Not only is this a free event, but there’ll be beer and Pueblo Viejo tacos on-hand all night.

Cedar Street Courtyard
208 West 4th Street, Suite C, Downtown
7 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Cedar Street Courtyard transforms its alfresco space into King’s Landing on Sunday evenings. Visit the bar for some Dornish red, and keep an eye on the giant LED screen for some Game of Thrones surprises. Yes, there’s a replica Iron Throne, too, for posing and photos.

Last Straw
1914 East 6th Street
8 p.m.

Vacation-themed bar Last Straw will have the show up on their big screen, plus drink specials.
