The Esquire Tavern's claim to fame is that it's the "oldest bar on the River Walk." As a nod to its historic opening in 1933, Esquire Tavern is a speakeasy-style bar with damask wallpaper and dark wood. Esquire offers tasty bar bites — including chicken mole, fried corn on the cob and citrus trio ceviche — wine, beer and a vibrant cocktail menu.
