Comfy, chic decor and coffee oasis by day. Rooftop views and killer cocktails by night. Paramour specializes in hard to find and difficult to acquire beverages for both day and night time affairs. Located on the expanded Museum Reach, right behind the San Antonio Museum of Art, the coffee and cocktail bar makes for the ideal date night setting, while expansive enough to host up to 500 people on the rooftop patio and 1000 people throughout the entire space for private events.

Not a chain, and not mass produced. Drink local at Weathered Souls Brewing Co. We are independent and plan to stay that way. A welcoming brew community, Weathered Souls operates on the philosophy that if the beer is good, the people will come. So far, so good. The brewery keeps popular beers on tap, but their list changes often – stay in touch with their Facebook community for weekly release announcements. Looking for food to pair? Say no more, Weathered Souls is now serving up great food prepared by great folks, James and Natalie Cochran (of the Food Maniacs food truck).
