Dynamo Day At Avenida
Eat & Drink
Some might say that eating and drinking is essential to starting off a good game day, and here on the Avenida, we’d have to agree. Here are some options for pre and post-game fun:
If you have an Instagram, you’ve probably seen this heavenly sports bar cross your feed at least once or twice. Owned by THE Houston Astros’ very own Craig Biggio, the sports bar and grill offers elevated twists staple sports bar cuisine such as burgers, nachos, wings and chili. Finish it off with one of Biggio’s to die for cocktails, or one of their 20 beers on tap. Not to mention, this is probably one of the comfiest sports bars you’ll find around Downtown. With private viewing rooms, reclining leather chairs, two 30-foot tall screens, it’s hard to go wrong.
If you’re a Houston native, chances are you’ve heard of the Pappas chains. Our Avenida campus would be incomplete without this little slice of home. From their unbeatable chicken/beef fajita nachos to their queso and guacamole, the Pappasito’s menu is the perfect addition to a Dynamo’s game day. It doesn’t hurt that they have an extensive list of handcrafted margaritas, either.
The second child of Breakfast Klub’s very own Marcus Davis, Kulture packs a punch with it’s urban comfort cuisine. With menu items like shrimp and grits, crispy fish and johnny cakes, it’s hard to imagine a bad game day with this as a destination.
Want to stay while you play? We have some great hotels on the Avenida that will make your staycation a lot more relaxing:
We all know that Texas summer doesn’t truly end until at least November. Although in this case, that’s a good thing! The Marriott Marquis allows for luxury and relaxation, all while having easy access to the field. Float the Lazy Texas River before kicking your day off with a bang. Not to mention you get to look out on a pretty nice skyline.
Feel like some R&R before a fun day of festivities? Look no further than the Hilton-Americas. Like the Marriott Marquis, the Hilton-Americas is uniquely positioned in the heart of downtown, leaving everything within walking distance. Treat yourself to the Skyline Health & Spa club and a coffee at Texas’ largest Starbucks before kicking off the day.
One of the more affordable options for those looking to save but want to still spend a night Downtown, is the Embassy Suites. The hotel features spacious, two-room suites with separate living areas, private bedrooms and wet bars. Guestrooms are also equipped with high-speed internet access, two flat-panel televisions and two, dual-line phones, among other amenities.
Homewood by Hampton
Homewood Hamptons is another great option to add to the list, with amenities such as an indoor pool, a fitness center, a fully-equipped business center, an on-site Suite Shop convenience store, and complimentary grocery shopping service. Hotel guests will also enjoy spacious one or two bedroom suites with a complimentary hot breakfast buffet daily.
See world-class art like Wings over Water and more; where the lights and water will give you peace and inspiration.
After the game, head down to the Lobby Bar inside the Hilton Americas. Mix with locals, tourists, convention guests and other die-hard fans, or enjoy the elegance of Hearsay on the Green.
