Parent’s Night Out: Breweries + Hangout Spots

It’s no surprise that Kyle was named one of the best cities in Hays County to raise a family in 2023. The city has excellent schools and plenty of ways for families to have fun. 


As enjoyable as family outings can be, sometimes parents need to cut loose – without the kids. Whether you’re looking for a date night with your spouse or you’re a single parent simply looking to meet new people, Kyle has several spots for a parent’s night out. 


The Railhouse – You’d be hard-pressed to find a better local venue that promises good food, cold drinks, and a full live music calendar. The Railhouse reopened in 2021 under new ownership, and since then, it has established itself as one of the city’s most popular entertainment destinations, with something going on 7-nights a week. Many days offer both evening and matinee shows, so even if your babysitter can’t stay late, parents can still enjoy some live tunes. 


Centerfield Sports Bar – There are lots of places to watch the big game in Kyle, but if you’re looking for a bar with “TVs in every direction” and an almost never-ending list of draft beers, Centerfield Sports Bar is a top pick. Don’t make the mistake of thinking Certerfield is only a hangout spot for game day, though. The venue has regular karaoke and DJ nights for patrons looking to bust a move on the dance floor. 


Wicked Wings – Not only does this local wing joint offer some killer wings with spice levels ranging from mild to “wicked hot,” but the rest of its menu selection is sure to hit the spot for a casual date night. The restaurant offers a full bar and food menu, including pizzas, salads, burgers, and sandwiches. And after you’ve enjoyed some grub, hit the dance floor or step up to the mic for karaoke. 


Glenn’s Bar and Grill – This local spot is found on the Plum Creek golf course, but even if you don’t know the difference between a nine iron and a driver, it’s still worth checking out. The restaurant and bar underwent a complete renovation several years ago and has since become one of the best lunch spots in town. It’s also a great spot to hit up after work for a happy hour drink on the patio or on the weekend to enjoy the big game on the bar’s 100” projector. 


Aviator Pizza & Drafthouse – Sometimes parents want a night out with the kids that is a bit on the more low-key side. If that’s the case, then chill and casual is just what you’ll find at Aviator Pizza. The restaurant has several locations and offers a wide range of specialty pizzas that are sure to be a hit with any parents out there who can’t remember the last time they had a pizza that didn’t come from Chuck E. Cheese. 

These are just a few of the many great restaurants in Kyle that are worth stopping by for a drink or bite to eat. If you’d like to learn more about Kyle and find a home in the Crosswinds community, contact us today.
