The perfect place for an intimate moment or steamy makeout session is romantic and somewhat secluded. Sites around San Antonio that may be great for a date might not work as well for full-on PDA. So the next time you are looking to get hot and heavy somewhere around the city, consider one of these five smooching spots:
SoHo Wine & Martini Bar
This wine and martini bar is an underrated downtown gem. With low lighting, jazz music, and blood-red chalkboard walls, the vibe here is seductive speakeasy. SoHo's creative craft cocktails are indulgent desserts by themselves (carrot cake-tini anyone?), but patrons also rave about the creme brulee and laid-back bar staff. SoHo is a popular date night spot, so expect to see other couples snuggled up together too.
Japanese Tea Garden
Without a doubt, the San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden has some of the most beautiful scenery in the city. With its 60-foot waterfall, koi ponds, and lush Japanese flora, this serene tea garden is a classic makeout spot. If you go early in the morning (bonus: the weather is more likely to be cool), the garden is usually empty, which gives it a tranquil atmosphere. So find a comfy seat along the stone steps and pucker up.
Tower of the Americas
This downtown attraction is another makeout hub made great because of its amazing views. You and bae can chill on the observation deck or go up to the Charter House Restaurant to see the rotating city skyline. Consider doing happy hour on the second floor bar of Charter House — it's more secluded with an older crowd that probably won't mind a little PDA.
Pearl Turning Basin
Really any of the projects of the Museum Reach would be great makeout spots. However, we picked the Pearl Turning Basin because of the quiet setting outside the hustle and bustle of the Pearl Brewery. Indeed, it is beautiful to watch the basins turn and the water cascade down a new path. Maybe after finishing dinner and drinks at the Pearl, you and your lover can wander to the basins and enjoy the rest of your night together.
San Antonio Museum of Art
Yet another overlooked attraction in the Alamo City, this museum houses over 25,000 pieces of art, ranging from ancient to contemporary, Latin American to Southeast Asian. Located inside the former Lone Star Brewery plant, the building itself is a great showcase of refurbished spaces. Hide behind a Greco-Roman sculpture, steal a kiss while admiring Diego Rivera murals, or lounge in one of the hammocks from the current "Mi Casa, Your Casa" exhibit. Your options for a romantic rendezvous are endless.
