Take full advantage of all The City by The Lake has to offer. Be sure to check out these popular locations during your next night on the town, whatever the occasion.


Sports fans, gather round! Whether you’re new to the game or a golf pro, the team at Topgolf will get you set up to play in no time. Between swings, flag down a team member or head to the bar and enjoy some delicious appetizers and cocktails. Nothing beats a great view, and Topgolf boasts one of the best with each bay overlooking a pristine green toward a massive screen showing the night’s big games. You can even see the Grandscape Wheel in the distance.


Golf doesn’t have to be an outdoor game. Puttery puts a modern spin on mini-golf for the 21+ crowd with immersive themed courses and complimentary drink delivery while you play. You can wait for tee-off at one of the three bars or enjoy drinks and snacks in the lounge. Then, keep up with your total through auto-scoring at every hole and see how you rank on the daily leaderboards. View the Puttery website and never miss out on a moment.

 Andretti Indoor Karting & Games

Andretti’s isn’t your average arcade and race track. Named after the racing legend, Mario Andretti, the action-packed venue provides the perfect setting for late-night adventure and competition. Race in high-speed superkarts along a multi-level track or test your skills on over 120 arcade games. Celebrate your victory with specialty cocktails and cold brews at one of their multiple bars including the second-floor patio overlooking Grandscape. Stay out extra late on weekends because the party lasts until 1 AM.

 Topo Chico Lawn & Stage

With world-class entertainment and spacious turf, the Topo Chico Hard Seltzer Stage & Lawn is the hub of everything happening at Grandscape. Meet up for events ranging from concerts to watch parties to holiday celebrations year-round. The lawn is centrally located within Grandscape, giving access to shopping and nearby eats, including The Colony Wine Bar and Parry’s Pizzeria & Taphouse. See what events are happening soon on Grandscape’s website.

 Truck Yard

Nothing compares to a Texas sunset, and we have just the place to sit back and enjoy the views and brews. Head over to Truck Yard for a night of food, drinks, live music and games. This “adult playground” with a dive-ish beer garden vibe has multiple themed bars and rotating food trucks, so you can try something different each time you come and it’s perfect for groups. Check out what’s on tap at Beard Science, a sour house unlike your typical brewery, or reserve a room at Limin Lounge for karaoke or poker. While there, you have to visit Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum. The name speaks for itself.

 Lava Cantina

From brisket tacos and mini beignets to hurricanes at the bar, Lava Cantina serves up fresh Creole flavors with a Mexican twist. Experience great music and great food at Lava Cantina’s concert venue, featuring a packed schedule of music and tons of rock n’ roll memorabilia. Catch performances by Snoop Dog, Bowling for Soup and the Toadies, as well as tribute bands like Petty Theft and Back in Black. With great food, great tunes and a great atmosphere, Lava Cantina will keep you rocking all night long.

Rock & Brews

Immerse yourself in a music-inspired dining experience at Rock & Brews. This local favorite offers one of the area’s largest selections of international and craft beer, in a casual setting where you can enjoy videos of some of the greatest rock concert moments of all time. The concert lighting, late-night music, and Great Wall of Rock are sure to bring you back to the good ole days of Rock & Roll while you dine on aptly named dishes such as Spicy Maui Wowie Pizza, Freebird Chicken and Purple Rain Drops.

Whether you’re looking to settle in and get comfortable or spot-hop and hit the highlights, The Colony offers some of the best options for you and your crew to eat, play and listen to great music. Check out our nightlife itinerary for more unforgettable evenings in The Colony.
