 It's Time For A Guys Weekend Out!

AEC-Sports-Fans

Get your buddies together and head to one of our many bars and hangout spots. A guy's weekend just isn't complete without burgers, beer, and sports. And we've got it all! With Father's Day around the corner, what better time than now? Leave the kiddos at home with their mom so dad can enjoy some well-deserved relaxation too!

Last Call!

Beer Tower- Kellys

Giant beer towers, hearty menu options, a large outdoor patio, and late-night hours. What more can you ask for? Kelly's at the Village at The Village at Allen is serving up all of that and more! Did we mention the beer tower? Grab the guys and find a spot at Kelly's at The Village for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can't go wrong indulging in anything with meat on their menu - which is pretty much the whole menu.

For breakfast after a long night out, Kelly's has just 'The Cure' for you (hence the name). Dig into eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, and queso stacked and served on an open-face homemade biscuit. For dinner, indulge in 96 oz of your favorite malt that'll last you all night, and be sure to get a round of brisket chips for the table. You and your crew can hang out 'til 2 am, with beer and bar bites everyone will love. 

Shakertins Allen

Are you looking for a late-night bar spot with a little more action? Shakertins at The Village at Allen is calling your name. Top off your guys' weekend fun where you can rock out to live music on the weekends, rack 'em up with a game of pool, or catch fight night and cheer on your favorite sports team on their 26 flat-screen TVs.

Be sure to order a Barn Burger, topped with cheddar cheese, BBQ pulled pork, housemade slaw, and onion ring topper, and rounds of "Flagship Old Fashioneds" all night long. 


Bonus Tip: Book your weekend stay at the Courtyard by Marriott, steps away from the nightlife scenes and restaurants at The Village at Allen. Bar hop between Kelly's at The Village, Bar Louie, Shakertins, and more. Not to mention, walking distance to Allen Event Center to catch any action from sports games to concerts and gun shows. Check the calendar to see what's happening.


You can even book a special stay package at Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen,  just steps away from Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm, a multi-purpose resort-style shopping center. But, don’t let “shopping” center scare you away. You can get your hands on just about any cuisine or drink you have a taste for all right here. Start your beer, wine, and cocktail journey at Village Burger Bar

Trust us when we say the Dougie burger, truffle fries with one of each of their signature dipping sauces (yes, that’s right! One. Of. Each. Because they are just that good) is a must with any drink of choice from their full bar. 


And if you enjoy a great glass of wine just as much as you enjoy your beer and liquors, Cru Food and Wine Bar offers over 300 wines from around the world. Sit on their quaint patio under the Watters Creek string lights, people watch and indulge in your favorite red wine paired with their classic charcuterie board featuring prosciutto, whole grain mustard, and laura chenel goat cheese. On Father’s Day, Cru is serving a three-course meal that highlights some of their best menu items like the fresh Heirloom Tomato and Burrata salad and Bistecca All Florentina - Yukon gold steak fries, for the main course. Don't wait to call and make reservations for this delicious Fathers Day dinner. 

Allen After Dark - Lion & Crown Pub

The Lion and Crown at Watters Creek has everything you could ever need for a night out. Enjoy this “not so average” English pub with over 38 different beers on tap, and weekend events such as live music with an acoustic vibe or karaoke nights. Don't forget to take advantage of their extensive weekday happy hour deals where they serve beer starting as low $3.50 for man size brews and discounted apps! Enough said, time to get your drink on!



If you thought that was a lot to choose from, go where beer is the ultimate staple at The Brass Tap - Craft Beer Bar. Visitors rave about the relaxing yet upscale atmosphere, bar events from live music to trivia nights, and the vast selection of 200 beers, tapped and capped. Dare we say it, the Brass Tap is always "hop-pening."

Cigar Palace Bar

Time for a well-deserved smoke break! The Smoking Lamp Cigar Lounge at The Village at Allen offers a relaxing escape from all the fun with your buddies, along with premium cigars to enjoy and sports on TV. They have everything ready for our cigar connoisseurs, as well as those looking to experiment with their first stogie. Add a cocktail to your smoke at Cigar Palace and Bar, which features unique house cocktails made with cognac, bourbons, and rums that pair perfectly with the aroma and flavor of your cigar of choice. 


Swing, Shoot, or Strike?

Is it truly a guys’ weekend without sports? Playing them instead of watching them, that is! Take a swing at D-bat, the top baseball and softball training center in the country. Step up to the plate in your batting cage and master your swing as you show those pitching machines just what you're made of. Slowpitch or fastpitch, they’ve got it all for any level of batter. Or, strike some pins instead of striking out on the field at PINSTACK. The after five vibes in their VIP lanes are perfect for a group of any size. Sit back, sip on the new Frozen Jack & Coke, and compete in a round of bowling. Turn up the stakes, and the loser buys the next round of happy hour drinks (and maybe even the WTF platter for the table) at PINSTACK’s full bar.


Fathers Day at PINSTACK

 Bonus Tip: Order the Father's Day special at PINSTACK from June 16 - June 20. For just $42, you get 35-oz Tomahawk Bone-In Ribeye with Truffle mac & cheese and grilled asparagus, and a 20- point fun card.

14A-Dudley-Group

Tee off and play 18, 9, or 6 holes at The Courses at Watters Creek, one of Allen's most reputable golf courses. No matter your skill level, they have various options for your best slices, hooks, and fades. For something even more tranquil, head over to the emerald hills of Allen, where you'll find The Golf Club at Twin Creeks. It's an Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course sitting amongst beautiful nature, two creeks, and five lakes, creating the perfect backdrop for golf.

AGA-TopGolfAllenTx-15

That's not all. Get into the swing of things at Topgolf. With a full bar, arcade area, and golf games galore, it's the ultimate entertainment destination for casual or competitive players of all skill levels. So whether you're Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus on the course, they've got just what you need to play around! Grab the signature nachos for the table, sip on a Crown & Coke from the bar, and bring on the competition!

TexasLegendsGunRange-10

If your idea of a range is shooting targets instead of swinging at them, the Texas Legends Gun Range will take your shooting experience to the next level. With its new, state-of-the-art facility and 30 lanes with rifle bay, tactical bay, pistol bays, as well as training games and drills, you can never get bored here! The "real world" lighting is designed for daytime conditions or night shots for realistic scenarios. 


Bonus Tip: Tru by Hilton Dallas Allen is steps away from Texas Legends. Ask the front desk how to receive a discount on your visit to the gun range, or call to book the Guns and Roses package that includes a 2 for 1 admission on a shared pistol lane when you stay a minimum of 2 nights!

Whether you're shooting at bad guys or zombies, engage in an exciting VR experience at Imaginations VR or VR Trip in Watters Creek. Slip on the headset, take control of your in-game weapons and choose from over 80 virtual games, including the only I-Racing experience in Allen, and enjoy hours of entertainment.

Giant party Sports

Immerse yourself in a whole new world at Giant Party Sports in Allen, where you can experience paintball and airsoft in an all-new way. Giant Party Sports has created their own equipment, fields, and events to take any guys night out up a notch. Dive into an apocalyptic world where aerial bombings now decimate a once beautiful city. Your mission is to save the remaining survivors without getting attacked by opponents.

Or, Mad Max fans will love this familiar territory on this themed field. Go where man’s most precious resource - oil - has been depleted, and you have to race to stop the rebel militia seizure of power and save the world. Regardless of which of the four themed fields you choose or what mission you decide to take on, pick your weapon and add a bang to your guys’ weekend. 


Shopping Made Fun (for Men)


For the sports "pros," MonkeySports Superstore has aisles and aisles of all things baseball, hockey, and lacrosse. Choose your gear, then step into their onsite batting cage or slap shot room to test out the new equipment. It's a shop and play experience that you can't pass up. 

Cabelas

For the outdoorsmen whose sport of choice is hunting, fishing, and everything in between, we've got you covered for your shop and play experience as well. Cabela’s at The Village at Allen is one of the largest hubs in DFW for any of your outdoor needs. After browsing the taxidermy section that has something to please any outdoorsman's eye, you can test out archery skills in their indoor target room before heading over to The Gun Library. Enthusiasts, find your new favorite gun or rifle in one of the hundreds on display! And, feel free to bring your furry friend while you shop; they'll love it too. 


Kick up your boots and take a break from reality with a boys-only weekend away. Whether it's golfing or lounging on one of Allen's many restaurant patios, we have everything you need to relax and unwind with some guy friends. Book your stay today, just steps away from all the fun.
