Austin, TX – Austin Huns Rugby Club is thrilled to announce a new partnership with The Wheel and Lavaca St Bar as the new Social Homelands of the club. This partnership comes months after the closing of Nasty’s Bar, Huns home for the last three decades.
“The reigning Division I USA Rugby National Champions need a new home, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to host the club,” said Max Moreland, Bar Owner. “This is a great partnership for the Huns,” said Demetrio Leyva, Director of Development. “Having a bar within miles of the pitch makes it a great location for post-training and post-match social gatherings.”
The Wheel is a friendly neighborhood bar catering to the East Austin neighborhood with a comfortable and inviting space where all are welcome. The Wheel offers a rotating selection of local and craft beers on their custom-made beer tower along with an innovative but unpretentious cocktail menu based on seasonal ingredients from local artisans.
One of the oldest Neighborhood Bars in the Warehouse District, Lavaca St. Bar has transformed into the quintessential Sports Bar in downtown Austin! Lavaca St. has three locations: Downtown, South Lamar, and Domain.
Scrimmage & Pub Crawl!
The Austin Huns plan to kickoff the new partnership with a pub crawl Saturday, November 18, following the scrimmage versus the 2017 TRU Division III Champions San Marcos Greys! The match is scheduled for 3:30pm at Huns Field and the Pub Crawl following the match. CLICK HERE FOR EVENT DETAILS
