Punch Bowl Social

11310 Domain Dr, Austin, TX 78758

We had to throw this one in. Not only are their punch bowls insanely iconic, but they’re also known for doing a subtler, and arguably better, take at the adult arcade than Dave & Busters (sorry, guys). Enjoy life-size scrabble, bowling, karaoke, classic video games, and their brand-new 9-hole mini golf course.

Wonder Bar

Swirling colors, disco balls, a unicorn kiddie ride, and a chance to win prizes like sex toys await you inside Wonder Bar, The Domain’s wildest themed establishment. It’s frequently dressed for the season, so you can expect a lively rotating cocktail menu as the bar caters to all of your senses.

TLDR: it’s essentially Willy Wonka’s chocolate bar (regrettably sans chocolate).
