I LOVE THIS BAR, IT IS THE BEST!!!! I LOVE THE FACT THAT BAR TENDERS REMEMBER ME && REMEMBER THAT I LIKE MY DOS XX WITH SALT && NO LIME. EVEN AFTER A MONTHS OF NOT BEING THERE, THEY STILL REMEMBERED. I FELL COMFY IN THERE. I EVEN FELL COMFY ENOUGH TO GO BY MYSELF. I AM GOING TO KEEP GOING HERE!!!!
Pros: ITS CLOSE TO MY NIGHT JOB-THE BARTENDERS ARE GREAT-GREAT PLACE TO BE
We love the embiance of Rebar. Great neighborhood bar with a awesome, casual feel. Old church and theatre seats for relaxing, or big screen T.V. for sports. There is always unique trendy artwork for sale on the walls. It's dark and a bit dingy looking, but that adds to the charm.
That being said, it should NOT be considered a Martini bar!! We love martinis and partake of them on a regular basis on Friday nights. Everytime we go to Rebar, it is a new and very young gal who has never made a martini in her young life. We patiently talk her through, (whoever it is) but it is always nasty. We like our martini's dry and with a twist. They don't have any lemons, only limes. Anyone who knows a good martini, uses a lemon twist. If you are really lucky, you will have a male bartender who used to be across the street at Karma. He is the only one who knows how to make a proper martini. Unfortunately, it is luck to catch him there.
So, don't be misled by thinking this is a martini bar because it isn't. A great bar for beer or simple cocktails, not requiring any thinking on the bartenders part.
Some of the best bands in San Antonio play at Rebar. No cover, great music, attractive people, lounge-y inside and great patio outside--what more could you ask? Just get there early because it's hard to find parking...
Pros: music, scene, people-watching
Hey, I'm an old guy (50) and though it's loud, I think Rebar has the right attitude toward making customers happy! If I was 24-30 years old, it would be a good place to meet people.
