Alamo Heights has plenty to offer in terms of neighborhood go-to spots to enjoy your favorite libations. There are extensive wine, beer, cocktail, and happy hour options. Add to that live music, food, and football in some cases, and it makes this '09 roundup an easy one for fall.
Here's where to drink right now:
Bar du Mon Ami
Cozy and lovely, this spot always delivers a lively time. It's famous for its Moscow Mules (it must be the location), but the new fall menu promises to deliver even warmer favorites, like coffee-infused rum and cinnamon bourbon cocktails, as well as our favorite drink, the ginger hot toddy. Hello, fall, so happy to see you.
The Broadway 5050
Football and beer — fall is officially here, and you can find exactly what you're looking for at this neighborhood sports bar. With plenty of beer on tap and bottled varieties, you need only turn your attention to your favorite team's schedule.
The door says it's a neighborhood bar and baby bistro, but the libations taste all grown up to us. Try the Mexican chocolate martini, a perfect blend of brandy, Lico 43, and Mexican chocolate.
Silo Elevated Cuisine
This Alamo Heights bar is full of great live music on Friday nights, and the vibe is lounge-y with an artistic twist. Order any of the classic cocktails — an extra dirty martini was just what we needed — to go along with the tunes. You can also enjoy half-off wine on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
The perfect balance of comfort and structure, this spot promises all Italian, all the time. The wine list is extensive and includes rosé year-round due to chef Jason Dady's love of it. You can find some quality cocktails as well.
