- The Scene
A crowd of Alamo Heights 20- and 30-somethings keeps this neighborhood bar jumping seven nights a week. The whimsical decorating motif is rebar, that round, twisty metal normally seen poking out of a half-finished freeway overpass. Rebar appears in various forms, from the sign out front to the spider-like creation that holds the tip jar aloft. Stainless steel barstools, flip-down movie seats, and purple lights shaped like lava lamps all contribute to the funky atmosphere.
The bar has the feel of a party at a friend's house. In fact, it used to be a house. With large front and back patios and an area inside with comfy couches, it's a casual, flexible space that's good for hanging out with friends, chatting with a date, or prowling for love. Good-natured, hard-working bartenders keep your glass full at all times. Local bands play on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
