The story of Hanovers’ family business started in the heart of downtown Pflugerville, Texas as Hanovers Draught Haus on Main Street. It has been the neighborhood iconic gem since 1903 when it first graced its presence as a mercantile with a saloon in the back. Many years later, Tom Hanover took over and reopened the historic building as a hardware store and lumberyard. It was not until 2003 when Hanovers Draught Haus was established as a bar and smokehouse.
Since 2008, the venue expanded to include a UT-themed man cave bar, a spacious deck with outdoor seating, outdoor stage, 2 sand volleyball courts, children’s playscape, and BBQ kitchen. Today, Hanovers is a family-friendly neighborhood bar where everyone knows your name and where the Pfun never stops. It hosts live music, community/corporate/private events, and the second home for many Pflugerville’s residents.
Hanovers Family Grows
Hanovers Draught Haus has been such a success that we decided to expand the Hanovers family from Pflugerville to Round Rock. We wanted a place where the “Pfun” never stops and continues with bringing the feel of downtown Austin to North Austin. We could not find a space fitting for our second location, so we decided to build one. It was decided that the Hanovers family will have a brand new sister’s bar named Hanovers 2.0. The new location was an abandoned old green building that used to be Antonio’s Mexican Restaurant. The old building was such an eyesore that we knocked it down and a new and beautiful building rises from the ashes and it is the perfect location to introduce the Hanovers family to North Austin and Round Rock.
August 2019 Hanovers 2.0 family was expanded even further with new upgrades to our event center to make it a Premier Upscale Destination Venue.
Hanovers 2.0 is over 7,000 square feet of interior space, offering live music with state of the art sound and lighting systems, outdoor sand volleyball, and premiering the only frost rail bar-top in central Texas.
Hanovers 2.0 is a family-friendly venue offering events and catering services for private parties, special occasions, weddings, and corporate events. There are various spaces for reservations, including a private VIP seating section, rooftop lounge, and with almost 2-acres of the outdoor wooded backyard, there is a spot waiting for you at Hanovers 2.0.
