Happy Hour Spots in San Antonio

As things move in the direction of a new normal, post-pandemic, the need for a good happy hour seems more prevalent than ever. I’ve always had my go-to spots but was pleasantly surprised to see there are many other seemingly delicious options. If you find yourself hankering for a good margarita or even looking for specials on some delicious sushi, you can find it in San Antonio. After polling fellow ACM Contributors and some Alamo City moms, I compiled the suggestions into this awesome list, which can be easily referenced for happy hour emergencies.
