Cover 2 – Cover 3’s “little brother” – has
arrived in northwest Austin! Local Austinites
and owners Matt Dodson and Doug Young
wanted to open a smaller version of the
popular sports bar and restaurant – hence
the name Cover 2. The 5,500-square-foot
Cover 2 opened at in March 2012 and is
true to the restaurant’s goal of being a
premier sports bar with 26 TVs, 80-inch flat
screens, and a sound system to match.
Restaurant goers can expect to enjoy the
same great quality food they’ve always
appreciated at Cover 2 in an upscale,
casual dining setting, including such “pub
grub” favorites as wings, flatbread
sandwiches, and salads. Cover 2 also
offers a full bar with a large selection of
spirits, 25 draft beers, two chilled liquor
taps, and a great selection of wines
available by the half bottle.

community. Enjoy a fine drink from the
