79. RD Hidden Door Speakeasy

There's a certain je ne sais quoi about texting a random phone number for a secret password to enter a modern-day speakeasy. Sure, it's a little dramatic and theatrical — but what's wrong with that? Dark lights, gilded details, candles, an eclectic soundtrack and excellent cocktails await at this intimate, reservations-only spot where just 35 guests can imbibe at one time. Request a cozy seating area away from other patrons or snag seats up at the bar to watch the masters at work. 8400 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 605-2292,

21. Bruno's Dive Bar

After the pandemic killed off a barbecue restaurant operated in this space by the owners of the nearby Friendly Spot, they reopened it and rechristened it with a nod to Bruno Dzanski, operator of B&D Ice House, which occupied the space from 1961 to 2014. With its back-to-basics approach and eccentric sense of décor, Bruno's hearkens back to the B&D days and ensures there's still at least one loveably grubby and downscale spot to drink at in the rapidly gentrifying Southtown neighborhood. 1004 S. Alamo St., (210) 225-9801,
