    Test your basketball skills with a pop-a-shot tournament at Lavaca Street Bar Rock Rose and Avery Brewing Company. On May 30, June 13, and June 27, Lavaca’s Rock Rose location will be serving up $5 Go Play IPA and White Rascal’s from 6-8 pm from Avery Brewing Company and giving away prizes to pop-a-shot champions.

    If you thought the Domain, North Austin’s city-within-a-city couldn’t get any bigger, the highly anticipated entertainment district known as Rock Rose has started to open—bit by bit. With a plethora of restaurants, bars, boutiques, and more already open or set to open in the near future, here are some of the highlights.

    Already open:

    Lavaca Street Bar is the northern version of the popular downtown sports bar, only 2,000 square-feet larger. Featuring skee ball, pool, and 40 screens plus a video wall, this is the perfect spot to catch a Rangers or Spurs game while you enjoy a sandwich from Turf n’ Surf Po Boy.

    Need a new pair of tan leather boots? A bar of beard soap? Just a cup of coffee or a glass of whiskey neat? Weathered Coalition is part mountain lodge bar and part men’s boutique, featuring rugged yet elegant menswear and accouterments.

    The third Austin location of Corepower Yoga is now open. The nationwide chain of studios has a stated mission of  “intensity for the body, presence for the mind,” combining the intensity of core workouts with the mindfulness of yoga.

    Featuring classic Irish, Scottish, and Welsh food and drink, Jack & Ginger’s is already a prime spot for both lunch and dinner. With more than 50 taps plus a selection of whiskies from across the pond, you can’t go wrong at this locally owned pub.

    More than a run-of-the-mill café, Two Hands Coffee prides itself on serving customers only the best, hand-selected coffee beans, the most freshly squeezed juices, and the tastiest craft ales and lagers.

    Coming soon:

    Now taking reservations for June, Viva Day Spa is opening its third location at Rock Rose for spa packages, facials, hair removal, nail care, and services for men, too.

    Named one of the “50 Best New Restaurants in America” in Bon Appetit magazine, South Austin’s Sway will soon bring its delicious brand of modern Thai made for sharing to the northern reaches of town at Rose Rose.

    Get your thin crust on at Salvation Pizza, a dog-friendly, beer-garden-style parlor on 34th Street set to open its second location at Rock Rose soon.

    It is back in all its glory. ”Skeeson 11″ of the Austin Skeeball League is just around the corner, and they’re ready to get rowdy. The league is the perfect way to spice up your week, meet new people and roll some skeeballs. It’s also incredibly fun.


    There are always good drink specials on league nights, so booze will be flowing and skeeballs will be rolling and due to the growing popularity they are moving to Lavaca Street Bar. The new season is bigger and badder than ever, as they also have new awards and new prizes. Prizes include bottles of booze, concert tickets, oil changes, gift cards, t-shirts and more fun stuff! At the end of the season, they even have an End Of Skeeson Party. This is a really entertaining league, so don’t miss out!
