DETAILS
Having received a James Beard Nomination for Outstanding Bar Program, River Walk institution The Esquire Tavern certainly knows its way around the bar — in fact, it's the longest wooden bar in the state of Texas. To complement the creative and classic cocktails and Texas beers on draft, the menu features upscale pub grub of deviled eggs, burgers, house-made fried pickles and plates that have included mesquite-smoked chicken mole, pecan porter beer-battered shrimp toast, and wagu beef steak au poivre. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner daily. Sat-Sun brunch 10 am-4:45 pm.
From the restaurant's website:
"The Esquire Tavern opened in 1933 to celebrate the end of Prohibition and has been a beloved San Antonio watering hole ever since, with a short hiatus from 2006 to 2011. The Esquire is back as the quintessential downtown bar:  dark, cool, redolent with history, and serving cold, cold beer, swanky cocktails, and excellent food."

"Respectfully restored (down to the nicotine-stained flocked wallpaper) by architect, developer, and "reluctant restaurateur" Christopher Hill, the place still looks and feels like the oldest bar on the River Walk, but an innovative approach to food and drinks gives everything a modern twist."
