We visited early on a Friday night. It was definitely worth a venture down the stairs!! Drinks were great (cocktails at happy hour) and the bartender was awesome!! She was very happy to suggest great bars and restaurants in San Antonio. Highly recommend.

We frequently come to the Palm and Bohanan's for dinner, and somehow we had never walked in to this bar hidden between the two until today. The atmosphere is very cozy and inviting, like a corner in an old library. And he drinks were amazing,...More
