New Irving ‘Hangout’ Serves Traditional American Bar Fare, Tex-Mex and Nepalese Snacks

A new sports bar in Irving wants to be a neighborhood gathering spot — a place to watch a game or play pool.

But Hangout Restaurant and Sports Club, which opened earlier this summer, also wants to offer something a little different.

The restaurant serves a blend of traditional American bar fare, Tex-Mex favorites and Nepalese food, like momas, or dumplings, peanut sadeko, a crunchy Nepalese appetizer, and marinated and grilled meats.

Owner Prajwal Chhetri, who was born and raised in Nepal, said he saw a need for Irving to have an independently owned sports bar. And given the city’s diversity, he decided to also offer food from his native Nepal.

“Since we’re in Irving, which is such a mixture of communities, we decided to serve a fusion of cuisines,” he said. “We’re not a typical sports bar, and we’re not a typical Nepalese restaurant.”

The bar has 32 TV screens, a private lounge available for parties and a covered patio, with plans to add another patio.
