Here are the best Austin bars, breweries, and restaurants screening Austin FC soccer games, with some offering food and drink specials. The next game airs on Wednesday, June 23 at 7 p.m. The team’s supporters group Austin Anthem also hosts regular watch parties at varying bars.

There’s also the full Q2 Stadium guide for those attending home games, as well as the best breweries and restaurants around the stadium.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each business is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things do change. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.

The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers.
