About Us

Location & Space

The Hangout is a Restaurant & Pub (Our [soft] Grand Opening was March 1, 2024). We are a private club, full bar and restaurant, and offer Private Party events and reservations when our calendar permits. We have REGULAR EVENTS & SPECIAL EVENTS daily!

Our initial hours and menu can be found here. We are NOW OFFERING take-out with our FULL BAR!!! Yes, you can get a DRINK. WITH LIQUOR. TO GO. Orders placed must include food. You can order takeout online or in person. Calling in is spotty, but we promise our posted hours (at the link above) are always current. We are not yet offering delivery at this time.

We offer a standalone pole barn-style 2500sqft building, located outside the city limits. We are 1 mile north of Highway 80 between Mineola and Hawkins, sandwiched between a popular spring-fed swimming lake and the Piney Woods of East Texas. We are a “lake bar” 😉 – located directly across the street from Lake Hawkins and the Lake Hawkins RV Park and Beach (the “campground”). We are centrally located in East Texas – with a 30-45 minute drive to Tyler or Longview and a 1.5 hour drive to Dallas or Shreveport.

Events & Capacity

We are a speakeasy-style lounge with regular events and special events every week (check our our calendar of regular & special events). We are pushing hard to make each week better than the next with service, quality, and entertainment! We have seating accommodations for approximately 75-100 guests, which includes table seating, bar stool and sofa seating. Including standing room, we estimate a maximum capacity of 250 guests (don’t quote us; we’re out in the county–this is an “unofficial” #). If the building’s garage door is open and the accompanying field is being used in conjunction with the building for a festival-style event, occupancy could be up to 2,000 guests. Check out our Photo Gallery here. Do you have music, show or festival ideas? Give us a shout.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule an event or float us an idea for a special event! 430-440-4264 (HANG).
