Experience Rockin’ R

There is a little something for everyone here at Rockin’ R! Our main location is located in the heart of Gruene, the only river front event location in Gruene. At Gruene Main, we welcome people to come and enjoy seasonal tubing on the Guadalupe River and year round live music, food trucks, games on our green space and much more. Our new Gruene Light bar is just steps away from the river and has great drinks and live music all summer long! We are open year round here, come out and enjoy!

Gruene Light Bar

Our outdoor bar on the Guadalupe River is one of the only places in town to watch all the games outside! The Gruene Light also has live music on select weekends and a variety of year-round events. Come hang out with us Thursday-Sunday!

El Arroyo Events and Catering

n preparation for the El Arroyo Restaurant coming to Rockin’ R in Gruene in 2023, we’ve launched El Arroyo’s Events and Catering Services at Rockin’ R’s river-side venues throughout New Braunfels. We do it all – holiday parties, weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, and more! Come enjoy the El Arroyo food truck at The Gruene Light Bar. NOW HIRING KITCHEN STAFF! APPLY HERE

Float the Guadalupe

Enjoy a beautiful float down the Guadalupe River, starting at our main location in Gruene. We’ve also got an Up River Guadalupe float at our Huaco Springs location. More details for both floats available under our ‘Guadalupe’ Tab.

Float the Comal

If you are looking to enjoy a day on the Comal River, Rockin’ R has a great location and the only private exit on the Comal. This float lasts 1.5-2 hours and takes you through the Tube Chute! You’ll end your float at the Rockin’ R private exit, located right before the public exit, where you can then relax on our river side deck. And if one float isn’t enough, go again for just $5 more!
