You deserve a break. It’s time to head to your local bar and soak up some adult refreshments that will knock your socks off. 

Downtown SA

On The Bend Oyster Bar & Cigar Lounge – 123 Losoya #7, San Antonio, 78205

Head to the San Antonio River Walk for an upscale bar and seafood experience in the heart of the city. No need to worry about spreading germs – the two-level outdoor patio amidst swaying palm trees will have you safely sitting with pals amidst a tropical dream. Try the Jalapeño Margarita or the Creole Bacon Bloody Mary while dining on a platter of fresh oysters or their Gulf Bend Seafood Dip. 

Northside SA

The Green Lantern Bar  – 20626 Stone Oak Parkway, Suite 101, San Antonio, 78258

Take a trip back in time at this speakeasy-style joint in the Stone Oak area of San Antonio. Try the “White Lantern,” a perfectly-peachy vodka mixed drink, or head out on Wednesday to enjoy “Whiskey Wednesday” where the mixologists will hook you up with the most delicious Old Fashioned you’ve had in a long time. They take their name seriously, too. If you can’t find the bar, look for the green-lit lantern and enter through the single door for a great time. 

Eastside SA

The Dakota East Side Ice House – 433 S. Hackberry, San Antonio, 78203

Chill vibes only at this local establishment. Quench your thirst for refreshments and history while visiting The Dakota.
