While you’re in town for the match, Arlington has something for everyone – from you and your buddies to you and your family. Be sure to check out some of these hot spots:
1. It’s on like Donkey Kong:
Whether you’re here with family or with your buds, Free Play is always a good time. No one will get bored or go hungry here – this retro arcade has tons of classics plus a full bar and menu. With the entry fee, you get unlimited game time to their 130+ arcades! Bonus: Free Play is across the street from the local favorite J. Gilligan’s Bar & Grill. Try their TV-famous Irish Nachos!
2. Pre and post-game brews:
For a celebratory drink, Arlington has you covered. We have not one, but two locally owned and operated breweries! Head over to our first brewery Division Brewing for anything from light ales and malty ambers to dark porters and stouts. Their drinks have some fun names including Metal Popsicle Lips, Tres Craneo and Lava Lamp – a tart, mouth puckering sour beer.
For some more craft brews, try Legal Draft Beer Co. located in Urban Union, a hub of local eateries and watering holes. If you’re feeling festive, try their You’ve Been Cerveza’d – a Mexican-style lager. Sip on some regional brews at On Tap. With a rotating menu brimming with Texas craft beers, you’ll find beers from all over the state.
3. Calling all Sports fans:
While you’re in town cheering on your team at Globe Life Park, check out our other iconic sports stop and home to the Dallas Cowboys – AT&T Stadium. The two incredible sports arenas offer tours where you can learn the in’s and out’s of the team and peep insider secrets. Stand in the actual Dallas Cowboys players’ locker room and see the view from the press box on a VIP Guided Tour.
