1. The Brooklynite
516 Brooklyn, (210) 444-0707,

Your choices show you’re savvy to our nascent cocktail culture, San Antonio, no arguments from our drink experts on these. But putting Jeret Peña’s establishment on top shows a special refinement. Even before launching The Brooklynite last year, Peña racked up national honors with a Rising Star Mixologist award from and a James Beard Outstanding Bar Program nomination (at his previous gig with The Esquire). Now that he’s got his own place, he’s more than proved his promise, staffing this retro-focused spot by the river with some of the suavest young bartenders in town.

312 Pearl Pkwy., (210) 227-2583,

3. Brass Monkey
2701 N St Mary’s, (210) 584-0103,
