The Esquire Tavern

Inspired drinks & pub grub in vintage digs with a patio & the longest wooden bartop in Texas.

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 boasts the longest wooden bar top in Texas – over 100 feet of beer-soaked wood rubbed smooth by the elbows of a zillion tipplers.
