“Dark, cool, and redolent with history”

The Esquire Tavern opened in 1933 to celebrate the end of Prohibition and has been a beloved San Antonio watering hole ever since, with a short hiatus from 2006 to 2011. The Esquire is back as the quintessential downtown bar: dark, cool, redolent with history, and serving cold, cold beer, swanky cocktails, and excellent food.

The Esquire is definitely THE Riverwalk bar to go to. Come right in off the river and into a cool, dark, classic bar with heads on the walls and a coyote at the bar. The cocktails are some of the best in San Antonio: creative, local, something for everyone. I'd also recommend the fried pickles.
