The Most Complete Guide to Pub and Bar Trivia in Austin

pinthouse pizza tavern austin

Why is getting together with friends to have some drinks and show strangers how much (or how little) you know about nothing so much fun? homer trivia

We’ve scoured the internet forums and all the trivia company pages to build a one-stop shop for finding trivia in town. We even threw in a color-coded map so you don’t have to read if you don’t want.

Please help us keep up-to-date on this. If a new one shows up or an old one goes away … please let us know.



There is lots of trivia on Tuesday night.


  • Wednesday is by far the most popular night to host trivia.  Every Pluckers (7:30) location is doing trivia and they have locations all over Austin. One is near you. The only exception is the Lakeline location, they don’t do it.
  • In central Austin, you can head to Mister Tramps (8 PM) right off of 183.  There is trivia at Wings-N-More  (7 PM) too. You can also check on Billy’s on Burnet (7 PM) right off of….well….Burnet.
  • Near Hyde Park, the Waterloo (on 38th) (8 PM) is an option.  Closer to campus, Posse East (7 PM) is an option.
  • A little closer to downtown is The Tavern (8 PM) which is relatively popular sports bar in town.
  • Several places do trivia in downtown proper as well.  BD Riley’s (7:30 PM),  Ginger Man (8 PM), and Trifecta on 3rd (8 PM) cover the west side of downtown. Gourmands (8 PM) and Violet Crown Social Club (8 PM) have you covered on the east side.



It’s thin on Saturdays.  Opal Divine’s (Marina) (10 PM) is up north and Opal Divine’s (Penn Field) (10 PM) way south. There is also Tiniest Bar in Texas at 9 PM.


  • Spinners does trivia up north starting at 7 PM.
  • The Black Star Co-op (8 PM) is a neat brewery concept in central Austin
  • Hole in the Wall (8 PM) is a dive bar right on The Drag where you can get your trivia on.
  • Ego’s (8 PM) is normally a karaoke spot but they turn the mic over to questions on Sundays on South Congress.
  • Even further south is Strange Brew (7 PM).
