Excellent extensive classic cocktail list and reasonable prices. Some live music and limited outdoor seating is available.

If you like a scotch and cigar in a nice outdoor setting, this place is for you. Relaxing atmosphere. Feel at home. Small selection of cigars. Nice selection of scotches. Martini's if you like those. A nice hang out.

We stopped here looking for fun. My sister and I were walking along the river walk and climbed the carafes to this gem. The bartender George was amazing.... I recommend the fire and ice . Go go go you'll love it!

We had this Martini Bar recommended to us by our concierge. It was very nice and just ask your server if you want your Martini done a special way - they are more than happy to do that. It was pretty quiet when we went in as it was a rainy Sunday evening but it is a nice little martini... More

I like Swig. It is centrally located so it is a good place to meet and enjoy a beverage before tackling downtown San Antonio. Sometimes it gets crowded and takes a while to get your order, but that's what happens when you have a cozy little place like this. If you get there early and get a table, just stay... More

Went there with friends for drinks and cigars. Great outside area where people walking by interacted with us for hours! Great service from excellent staff who took our orders to the letter. You ask for it, they'll mix it. Waitress brought us cold water because of the heat and overall made the entire visit worth her personality!

It was dark and the seating booth benches were stained.They advertise a bunch of beers and martinis, but they said they didn't have menus.We ordered drinks, but after 20mins we never saw anyone again and the drinks never came, so we...

Great service with high-end mixology. Just let them know what you're interested in and they will customize something for your liking. Manager was outstanding and personable.

Great menu; rather crowded and a small space; great drinks though; a little pricey but if you want an interesting different mixed drink, this is the place.

Outdoor setting the way to go as indoors its not so good. The cocktails are very well made and presented. Happy hour between 4-7 weekdays only. We tried 7 different cocktails 3 beers and a selection of 6 scotches over 3 visits. The list is extensive but happy hour specials are more restricted (still occupies a whole page though). No...
