A classy neighborhood bar
SoHo is my favorite place to go out to in San Antonio! It has a classy, old-timey feel to it with a local flavor. It's set in an old bank building in the touristy Riverwalk area, yet the majority of its clientele are a pretty friendly lot who live in San Antonio. Come dressed to the nine's or casual: everyone's welcome! The music ranges from funk to blues to pop tunes, but it's at a moderate level where you can actually hold a conversation with the people next to you without having to lose your voice. Sometimes you can catch a major game playing on the TV; however, I did ask once that the channel be changed from a Spurs game, and since no one else was watching the TV, they were completely willing to do so. The service is always friendly and willing to have a conversation if you like, and the owners are very knowledgeable about their liquors and wines. I'm more of a beer drinker myself, but these guys know how to mix a cocktail, and the signature tinis are mighty tasty. Prices are about average for San Antonio. The only down side is having to deal with parking in downtown, but it seems to me that most places here in SA have some kind of parking issues. Overall, I highly recommend this place!
