This ultra-romantic dessert and drinks lounge is a Cupid Gone Wild video, complete with red decor and chocolate overload. Coco seduces with Champagne and chocolate, but cements the relationship with a serious menu featuring the likes of cassoulet and rack of lamb with orange-chocolate chutney -- Johnston Farrow (10/08), Ron Bechtol (12/08)
Nice sized dive type neighborhood bar with pool, darts, and beer pong tournaments. Watch your favorite sports on one of our five flat screen TVs. Pitch some washers on our newly built patio. Different nightly drink specials with friendly knowledgeable staff. Cold beer, cheap drinks, good times.
This is a location with a spacious environment for the situated drinker, but also a great hangout for the outgoing type looking for a good time. Reasonable drink prices, an attentive staff and 27 TVs create the perfect atmosphere for a game-night hop-in. Poker tournaments on weeknights, live bands on Friday and Saturday, no-cover PPV events and a full food menu.
SA’s first hotel-style rooftop lounge is an official must-see for partyers under 30. You might have to wait in line on a weekend night, but the place honestly looks best before the crowd arrives. Consider arriving early for an outdoor cocktail; if it feels like a good fit, you’ll be in position for a rotating cast of DJs and people watching of the ego-fueled variety. Luxe outdoor furnishings give IVY a slick South Beach vibe, while drink prices fortunately remain within this time zone.
A fun, contemporary steakhouse chain out of Dallas that gets the most important details right. Not as swanky as Morton's, but not as stuffy, either.
Mon Ami, the lounge attached to popular mid-Broadway restaurant Mon’s Thai, is neither easily spotted nor categorized, which is both its charm and its challenge. There are several great options for wine, but the specialty drinks are the most interesting. Try
the potent Mad Men-inspired Don Draper cocktail, or a dark and minty Jamaican mojito. Whether you’re on your own or with a date, Mon Ami is the perfect spot for an old-school nightcap poured by someone versed in the art of mixology.
Featuring upbeat Top 40 music from the 80s to present day, a plush
environment, beautiful go-go dancers, and several VIP areas. Dress code enforced
The City Club at the Majestic is an upscale establishment where you can eat dinner, dance, drink, and watch a show - all under one roof. Located above vibrant Houston Street, the club is semi-private; an invitation fee and monthly membership dues will get you through the door.
The San Anotnio Downtown Alliance voted VBar's swank, ultramodern lounge "the place to be seen in 2005," and by the looks of the unbuttoned-designer-suit-wearing clientele, the reputation holds true. Sign up for the mailing list to receive ntices for special drinks-and-pampering nights.
The vibe is late '60s Sunset Boulevard, and the worn upholstery and a delightfully tasteless nude portrait lend an attractive air of faded glory. Join the youngish, tattooed crowd at the half-circle bar. -- Mark Jones (04/09)

The creative brainchild of guitarist Ricardo Diaz, Travesuras (Mischevious Pranks) unites flamenco artists from Malaga, Paris, New Mexico, San Francisco, and San Antonio. Featured performers include Cristo Cortes, Vicente Griego, Antonio Arrebola, and Tamara Saj. The San Antonio leg of the touring collaboration culminates Sunday with a matinee presentation of Dibujos de Travesuras (Sketches of Mischief), a series of choreographic vignettes exploring the range of emotions we encounter in daily life. Showtimes: 8:30pm and 10pm Friday at Carmens de la Calle Café; 8pm Saturday at España Bar de Tapas; 4pm Sunday at Raices de Arte Espanol Tablao.
Austin-based Bamako Airlines has just released their self-titled EP —an engaging collection of mostly solid AfroPop covers from Algeria, Madagascar, Ethiopia, and Mali. What I’m really looking forward to is their next album, which reportedly will be more centered on their promising originals (listen to Bamako Airlines’ “Desséché” for clues). Singer Meera Chandy, trumpeter Brian Carr, guitarists Chris Vestre and Michael Goldsmith, drummer David Justh, Sexto Sol bassist Greg Goodman, plus guest Eddie Lehwald on trombone (cross your fingers that they can also bring Guinea percussionist Aboubacar Sylla, who recorded on the album) are at their best in a live setting, and cozy Carmens is perfect for them — you could do a lot worse than having a sangría while Bamako Airlines is all over your ass.

Founded in Austin eight years ago by Chris Gross, FrankenBike promotes cycling to the masses while connecting cyclists looking to buy, sell or trade bicycles and bicycle related gear or parts.
