Staff Pick

Best Place to Nurse a Hangover/Bloody Mary 


WINNER: Liberty Bar

1111 S. Alamo St. - (210) 227-1187

Whether it's the airy setting, unpretentious vibe or ironic allure of recuperating (and/or retoxing) in a former convent, Southtown favorite Liberty Bar proves an ideal destination to comb through the hair of the dog that bit you. During its bustling brunch (9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday), the salmon-colored melting pot adds chilaquiles norteños and other eggy concoctions to its menu of "serious food" — which includes both straightforward American fare, pizza, pasta and dishes inspired by classic Mexican recipes. Pulling in an additional win in our readers' poll, Liberty's perfectly spiced bloody marys (crafted with a house-made mix) have been known to assist in the recovery process. Scratch-made desserts like coconut custard and Virginia Green's famous chocolate cake only sweeten the deal.
