The Esquire Tavern
The Esquire Tavern is more than just a bar that serves luscious libations and tasty elevated American fare; it’s a scintillating slice of San Antonio’s history. This downtown Tavern has been serving drinks to locals, drifters, celebrities and all walks of life for over 80 years. We first opened our doors in 1933 on Repeal Day, a day which celebrated the end of America’s 13-year-long alcohol prohibition. Lauded as the oldest bar in San Antonio -still holding the title of the longest bar in Texas- The Esquire Tavern is a venue of untouchable historic significance and has many remarkable tales to tell. One needs only to step foot into this cherished bar to experience the dedication to preserving its history and excellence, which is evident in every brick, bulb, plate and, of course, cocktail. Although completely renovated in 2011, The Esquire Tavern still retains its vintage décor, classic furnishings and dusky lighting that allows guests to enjoy a rustic yet romantic atmosphere. Located along the RiverWalk, guests can sit outside and take in festive surroundings and sultry San Antonio evenings.
