Havana Bar
1015 Navarro St., (210) 222-2008, havanasanantonio.com
Though Havana below Ocho (maybe we just love basements…) tends to veer into sultry territory, those nooks and crannies are homey and made for chill catch-up sessions over a boozy Martinique.

La Roca Cantina
416 8th St.,  facebook.com/larocacantina
Though still brand-spanking new and with a grand opening date looming in the future, La Roca sits inside a 100-year-old building and has not one but two fireplaces. Sure, it’s not entirely cold enough yet to turn them on, but you can still cozy up on the plush couches and nooks.

Bar du Mon Ami
4901 Broadway St., (210) 740-9229,  https://www.facebook.com/BarDuMonAmi
Mon Ami had cozy cornered way back when you needed to enter the phone booth to get to the bar. These days, the bar’s still made for conspiring and decompressing after a long day at work.

The Last Word  
229 E. Houston St. Suite 10., facebook.com/TheLastWordSA
Maybe it’s the faux-library wall lined with leather-bound books that makes this basement bar appealing. Or maybe it’s dark and intimate setting where you can chat about your latest read without judgement.

George's Keep 
17101 La Cantera Pkwy., Suite 1200,  georgeskeep.com
When redesigning the storage-space-turned-bar where George’s Keep now sits, Steve Mahoney and co. must have thought “More nooks!” Each and every booth in the back room is seductive and inviting. It’s perfect for slow sipping on bold booze.

Bar 1919
1420 S. Alamo St., (210) 227-1420, bar1919
Think about how much money the bar saves by keeping the setting dim and almost spooky...Grab a Scotch and ponder the meaning of life while there.

TBA 
2801 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 320-1753,  tbasatx.com
The former home of Salute is inevitably cozy because of its lean build and warm crimson hue. But head past the bar — after grabbing a cocktail or brew — and visit with your pals on one of their antique couches.

20Nine Restaurant & Wine Bar
255 E Basse Rd #940, (210) 798-9463,  20ninewine.com
This wine bar combines a great selection of reds, whites and bubbles and pairs them with equally alluring snacks. Sure, you could sit on the patio, but the private dining room helps keep those gossip sessions extra hush-hush.

Paramour
102 9th St., (210) 340-9880,  paramourbar.com
Part of what makes Paramour so dang cozy is the plethora of soft and fuzzy pillows that litter just about every ultra-comfy couch. Grab a boozy beverage and share a couch with a pal.
