Best Trivia Nights


The Flying Saucer

11255 Huebner Rd.

Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. (first game) and

10 p.m. (second game)

A favorite for many, The Flying Saucer hosts a weekly trivia entitled “Trivia Bowl.” Not a surprise, considering the casual and cozy vibe the bar offers. Winning will grant you a gift certificate from $15-$50. Categories range from current events to history and science. Hopefully your major will come in handy.

Halcyon Southtown

1414 South Alamo St.

Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

Tuesday evenings are a good time to get a taste of the atmosphere at Halcyon–arguably Southtown’s hippest coffee bar. Hosted by Geeks Who Drink, this event draws quite the crowd; so arrive on the early side if you want your choice of seating. Extensive menus of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks, as well as relatively healthy food options, provide plenty of choices.

Silver Fox

24802 Ima Ruth Pkwy, Leon Springs, TX

Wednesdays at 8 p.m.

For those who want an option closer to the Boerne area, San Antonio Trivia Live hosts a trivia night at The Silver Fox. The Silver Fox describes itself as the “Best Kept Secret in Leon Springs,” but some secrets deserve to be shared. Tim Hennessey of the SA Current called The Silver Fox a “refreshingly chill bar,” praising its spacious patio and agreeable prices. Make sure to grab some food before showing up for trivia, as food is not the focus of this hangout.

The Lion & Rose Pub

5128 Broadway

Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

Geeks Who Drink also hosts a trivia night at The Lion & Rose Pub in Alamo Heights on Tuesday nights. A staple of San Antonio’s pub scene, The Lion & Rose offers a wide selection of beers on tap, and their menu has a mixture of British/Irish and American cuisine. The SA Current voted this location’s bar trivia as the best in the city in 2013.

Angry Elephant

281 – 19314 Hwy 281 N Suite 107

Mondays at 8 p.m.

“Like Your Politics. Love Your Bar” is the Angry Elephant’s motto, and with a well-designed and decorated venue. Located where Highway 281 intersects Redland Rd, the government-themed bar is a political junkie’s dream. The Angry Elephant welcomes those of all political affiliations. But if you’re offended by mass consumption of frankfurters, beware — The Angry Elephant is known for its cleverly named gourmet hot dogs, such as the “Chris Christie Deep Fried Bacon Burger Dog.”
