The Menger Bar, attached to the swanky Menger Hotel, was built in 1887 as an exact replica of the House of Lords Pub in London. This vintage piece of San Antonio features dark cherry wood paneled ceilings, mirrors imported from France, and the establishment’s original brass spittoons.

Theodore Roosevelt even recruited his Rough Riders here before the Spanish-American War, so you can drink knowing you’re fully engulfed in San Antonio history.
