Very cool, chill neighborhood bar in downtown San Antonio where all the locals hangout. Great cheap prices, friendly people. In the middle of the tourist areas, very nice patio!

Stopped in for one and stayed for three talking with residents that live in the condos near Riverwalk. Bartender was friendly and made recommendations for places to eat and hang that weren't the usual chains. Decent selection of beers, clean and friendly atmosphere.

I have been going to this bar for several years now. The staff are friendly, the beer is cold and a 16oz draft is still two dollars. A great price for downtown. I would recommend this to three of my drinking friends. The late crowd...More

Fun spot to watch the game plus good dance music, enjoyed watching the crowd. Drinks were average, service a bit slow.
