What is a board game bar?
Vigilante seamlessly combines dinner, beers and board games! Bring your friends or come meet some fellow nerds of drinks and games: we provide a game library, local craft beers, wine, sake, a menu of gastropub food from our scratch kitchen, and incredible, unique gaming tables.
What is the Game Library?
Our board game library has a huge selection (over 160!) of board games for you to peruse. We have a wide variety of games, from social party games like Cards Against Humanity to famous euro games likes Settlers of Catan. We reorganize all our games into wooden boxes and sub-containers to ease setup. We maintain each game through regular inspections, ordering replacement pieces and whole games. Finally, we are constantly tracking our most popular titles to keep multiple copies on hand to reduce wait times for current favorites.
What does the game library cost?
Custom gaming tables cost $10 to use for the evening (and come with unlimited game access).
If you don’t sit at a custom table it’s free to play your own games OR it’s $3/person for unlimited use of our game library.
We don’t start charging for games or tables until 7pm Monday – Friday.
Finally: if you’d like to use our games or tables for more than 3 hours after 7pm on Friday or Saturday, it’s an extra $3.
Can I bring my own games?
Patrons may bring their own games at no cost. Our game library is available for convenience and selection.
Where do I park?
Parking is available in the parking garage directly across from our storefront. If you can’t find parking down below, there is always plenty of parking on the roof!
What do you mean by Gaming Tables?
You won’t find anything like them anywhere in the world (that we know of). Our tables feature roll-out food and drink holders, a meeple drawer, card holders, a service call button, power and ethernet outlets, and even a switch to alert other patrons that you’d be open to them joining your game. It’s one of the most novel social experiences in Austin.
Can I rent out Vigilante for a private event?
Yes you can! For more information see our private rentals page, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Kitchen closes at 11 PM every night.
Do you have happy hour?
Weekdays from 4pm to 7pm we offer $4 Texas Draft Beers (excludes ciders, meads and rotating taps), $5 sake bombs and $6 for two appetizers (not including our chicken strips).
What are your age requirements/ Are kids welcome?
We are not designed with children in mind. Kids are welcome before 10pm, but we are 18+ after 10pm. WARNING: many of our games feature adult content, and your neighboring tables will not be censoring themselves. We are a bar atmosphere.
It doesn’t exist. But if you must, speak to a host.
