There may be two bars with dozens of taps and hundreds of cans and bottles showing off a wealth of beer choices, but at The Friendly Spot you're just as likely to see a table full of people with Lone Stars in hand as pints of IPA. Dogs on leashes and kids (not on leashes) enjoying the fenced-in playground add to the neighborhood, we're-all-in-this-together feel of the place. That vibe is especially noticeable when folks come out to watch the Spurs play on the giant, blowup Slab Cinema screen. Pub and San Antonio-style snacking foods come out of the kitchen until midnight.
