    Jim Cullum's Landing
    1 more image

    Jim Cullum's Landing is located on the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk, literally just across the alley from the Alamo in the Hyatt Regency in downtown San Antonio. The Jim Cullum Jazz Band, America's premier 7-piece Classic Jazz ensemble, plays Monday through Saturday beginning at 7:30 PM. On Sunday nights, the popular San Antonio jazz group Small World takes over on the outside patio. Live jazz duos are featured on the outdoor riverside patio (weather permitting) from 3:00 PM non-stop until 12:30 AM. The menu of the Jim Cullum's Landing cafe, features fine cuisine, fine liquors, domestic & imported beers and wines, gourmet coffees, pies and cheesecake, and above all the hottest of hot jazz. All ages are welcome. Dress is casual.

    Been there for an hour, and just for a cup of coffee. Though I'm not too much of a jazz music fan, I did like their performance. Quiet and nice.

    Howl at the Moon: Dueling Piano Bars

    by ChartIt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Apple Bucket

    This is a dueling piano bar. The musicians are lively and pretty good at their job. The place was a bit smokey and extremely loud (which for me is a bad thing) however if you sit out on the veranda the smoke and noise become far less of a problem. You must be 21 to enter and they card before you enter. I believe there is a cover charge, but your hotel should be able to give you card to give you free entry. I only go if I can get in without the cover charge.

    Dress Code: Jeans nice shirt

    Arjon's International Club: Salsa

    by BellaMora Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its a nice spot on Fridays and Saturdays for salsa. Friday is an older crowd and Saturday is the 25 and up crowd. They have a live band all the time. There seems to always be a $5 cover.

    They used to do R&B on Tues. Check the website.

    Dress Code: Elite and classy.
    No sneakers. Jeans seem to be ok if you have a nice top -men.
    The ladies always dress for salsa dancing.

    Lackland AFB Gateway Club: Salsa in the City

    by BellaMora Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ok. Im updating this San Antonio section because there is so much more to offer in this city since Ive been back.

    Every 1st & 3rd Saturday, the NCO club has a VERY nice Salsa night. Pleasant and safe ambiance and very cheap drinks!

    The DJ played better music here than at some clubs off base Ive been to.

    They also have a dance instructor that gives a free lesson from 9:30 - 10pm if you want to learn with Yari Santiago.



    Dress Code: Anything goes. There are people from all over the world on base training for all types of things. Hence, all types of attire.

    Pat O'Brien's

    Like the original in New Orleans, San Antonio's Pat O'Brien's has hurricanes, a flaming fountain, an entrance lined with muskets, a noisy piano bar, Cajun cuisine and a quiet patio dining area. This replica has all the features of the St Peter's Street location minus the the flooding. I've been to the original, and once inside this San Antonio version, you can barely tell the difference.

    We enjoyed a few hours and a few hurricanes (rum, hurricane mix, crushed ice, orange & cherry) then decided to see more of the city.

    Besides the original in New Orleans and this San Antonio location, Pat O'Brien's has locations in Orlando, Memphis and Cancun.

    Mad Dog's Pub: A taste of Scotland on the Riverwalk.

    The scene at Mad Dog's

    Mad Dogs is a great place for a drink along the Riverwalk in San Antonio. The place was founded by two Scottish guys and has a great Scottish themed pub atmosphere. Great beer selection.

    Dress Code: If you have a kilt you'll fit right in, if not have a beer and you'll also fit right in.

    One of our friends having fun with the barmaid!

    Barmaids dancing on the bar continuously, drinking, offering bodyshots while wiping punters to the soundtrack of rock 'n roll.

    Sounds crazy? It is!! But we kept going back for more!
    :)

    Something to be experienced!
    Even my 57year old mum loved it!

    Dress Code: Anything goes, really..

  • Drink Cocktail Bar: Great cocktail bar

    by mintonm Written Mar 31, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Downtown San Antonio only has one genuine cocktail bar and it's called Drink - their cocktail list is huge. Drink is very relaxed with sofas everywhere and friendly service. The cocktails average $6-10 depending on the drink, and there's also draft beer and wine. There are 4 large TVs so it's great for sporting events too.

    I particularly like this location since it's away from the craziness of the Riverwalk, just opposite the Hotel Contessa. There's a relaxed crowd of locals and it's popular with the service industry too. Try their House Margarita if you get the chance (Cointreau, Grand Marnier and real lime juice - no triple sec!) since it's the best in the area.

    Dress Code: Casual

    Club Studio -25 and Up: R&B and Jazz

    by BellaMora Written Nov 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clubbing with the Ladies

    Great Jazz and happy hour buffet on Friday nights. Later on in the evening it's R&B and hip hop. Studio features some outstanding Jazz groups. Saturdays start off as old school R&B then migrate into the latest R&B and hip hop. Great spot Michael Ward has here in San Antonio.

    Dress Code: Ladies: Classy attire. Men must have nice shirts if they wear jeans. But slacks and suits are definitely appropriate. This is for grown folks. 25 and up.

    Tex's Riverwalk Sports Bar

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Good luck finding something original along the Riverwalk... our first afternoon in town, we wandered past the big chain places like Coyote Ugly, Dick's Last Resort, Howl at the Moon, Hard Rock Cafe, and numerous other name-brand unoriginal places until we finally saw Tex's Sports Bar. It had a cool name, and who's ever heard of a chain sports bar, right?

    Even worse than a chain, it turns out Tex's is a hotel bar! It is part of the Hilton Palacio del Rio. It's clean and nice, but touristy, expensive, and pretty dead.

    We selected a bad first bar in San Antonio, and we knew our luck could only improve.

    Final Four Accomodations: Nightclubbing in San Antonio

    by ATXtraveler Written Mar 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, it seems like your two questions conflict with each other. Let me try to clarify your intentions....

    Are you:
    (a) looking for a place with a great nightlife atmosphere, where you can enjoy the final four and also go out to a club or dance spot and enjoy a few beverages?

    (b) looking for an inexpensive way to enjoy your tickets to the premier basketball tournament finale without breaking the bank by staying a little farther away from the fray?

    If you are looking for (a), then your only choice is to stay in downtown San Antonio by the Riverwalk. Drinking and Driving is unacceptable here, and therefore you would be limited to walking/cab distance, and this leaves you squarely in Riverwalk range. You can bet that is not going to be cheap for that weekend.

    If you are looking for (b), then start by looking at San Antonio Airport hotels first, then expand to Fredericksburg, New Braunfels, Seguin and Kerrville. If those do not have deals, move to San Marcos, Austin, Bastrop, Victoria. All of these locations will require you to have transportation, and none of those are convienent for bar-hopping and then driving.
