These 25 San Antonio Spots Offer Patio Dining and Boozing Right Now

We gathered a collection of bars that are open now and offering great patio spaces to enjoy all season long.

So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.

Burleson Yard Beer Garden
430 Austin St., (210) 354-3001, facebook.com/BurlesonYard
When Burleson Yard first opened, it made a splash on the scene with its huge array of activities such as a large play area for the kiddos, table tennis, hammocks, giant flat-screens and live music. As the name suggests, hopheads will be pleased with the large beer selection, and the frozen drinks tend to be a big hit as well.

The Pigpen
106 Pershing Ave., (210) 267-9136, thepigpensa.com
The Pigpen in Alamo Heights has reopened their patio, but regular customers will recognize something is missing: the playground. While the Pigpen is known for providing a biting, gingery frozen Moscow Mule, the patio is a favorite of SA kiddos and their parents - thanks in large part to their sizable play structure. According to The Pigpen’s Facebook page, the play structure has been removed to make room for more socially-distanced tables for diners.
