The Rock Sports Bar reopened May 22 in Round Rock after closing temporarily during the coronavirus pandemic, as announced in a May 20 company Facebook post.

The business, located at 114 E. Main St., Round Rock, will operate at 50% capacity and has implemented additional safety measures.


Bar service is unavailable for the time being, with patrons served at tables only. Parties are limited to six people, and separate parties must maintain 6-foot distances between them.

Tables have been rearranged to adhere to social-distancing provisions, and hand sanitizer will be available at entrances. Single-serve condiments, utensils, cups and paper menus will be used, and staffers will disinfect surfaces and restrooms throughout the day. All staff will undergo a health screening prior to the start of their shift.
