 · Medusa Lounge: Featuring an art gallery with many interesting works by local San Antonio artists, this cool cocktail bar offers a comfortable, tranquil place to imbibe and appreciate.  Medusa Lounge also shares a courtyard with Zinc next door, so bar hopping is quite easy, and you really get two bars for the price of one.

· Club Antro: For anyone interested in electronic music, Antro provides the scene.  Hipness is the key word here, and Antro doesn’t disappoint.  Thursday nights are especially swinging.  DJs spin everything from techno to disco, and trance to reggaeton and rock en Espanol.

· Revolution Room:  Another in San Antonio’s growing list of hipster hangouts, Revolution Room makes patrons feel like they are in on the plot.  With pictures of Einstein, Che Guevara, and Ghandi, you can think deep thoughts, or dance to deep house on the underground dance floor.  Revolution Room is decked out in cool-blue lighting, and futuristic furniture.  It also features Wi-Fi and a great two dollar happy hour.

· Azul:  Anyone interested in broadening their horizons should check out Azul.  Although the façade and décor say post-industrial, the music and drinks say international chic.  A favorite with young professionals who work downtown as well as tourists staying nearby, Azul caters as much to the after-work crowd, as the late-night one.  Don’t be surprised to hear acid jazz, bossa nova, or samba music being played.  Azul also features a drink list with specialties from Cuban mojitos, to Mexican margaritas, and Brazilian caipirinas.  Enjoy the Latin vibes as you chill out on one of their comfy couches.
