Best Hotel Bar

Winner: Sternewirth Tavern (Hotel Emma)

136 E. Grayson St.

(210) 223-7375

For the second year in a row, this impressive lobby bar has won over Current readers by paying homage to The Pearl's industrial past while offering guests of all walks of life unmatchedservice. Sternewirth is a perk for guest of the uber-luxury Hotel Emma, but locals also gather to enjoy the atmosphere, well-made cocktails, local beer, wine and small plates. The Three Emmas cocktail — named for the scandal surrounding the brewery founder's wife and two mistresses of the same name — remains a crowd favorite with its pear and rose cordial flavor notes.
