Discriminating Taste
While having ice cream in the Riverwalk on Monday, my two daughters and I grabbed a table that happened to be next to another family enjoying their ice cream and that happened to be outside the Swig Bar. Shortly after we sat down, a guy came out of the bar and took a look around. We acknowledged each other without saying a word, and he went back in. Then he came back to the table and asked me if I was going to order something to drink or wanted a menu. I told him that I did not want to drink anything that we were just trying to finish eating the ice cream. He clarified that the tables belonged to the bar and its clients. I told him that we would leave the table shortly.
Before we left, something told me to make sure that the guy was not making me move just because he could. I asked my daughters to finish their dessert on a wooden bench that did not belong to the bar but it was not far from the bar area. It was the perfect place for me to see if the family of five was also going to be asked to move. Twenty minutes passed and the guy never came to ask them to move. He spent most of his time in the front area of the bar chatting with people. He peaked outside for a couple of seconds and saw us on the bench; we acknowledged each other again. All of the kids were behaving well. The parents at the other table were not drinking anything from the bar either; they were sharing ice cream with their kids. The only difference that I saw was that they were Caucasian, and we were not.
I was so outraged with the situation that I asked a waitress for the guy?s info. She said that he was the manager and confirmed that the table being used by the family of five belonged to the bar.
It pains me to have to write this, but I thought that treating racial minorities as ?second class? citizens was something that my daughters would have to read in history books and not have to experience it first hand.

A 'must visit' in Downtown
Basically, I like it. Great cocktails, great bartenders, and music that's not going to wreck a conversation. It's almost a legend on the RIverwalk, and I can see why. It's actually an amazingly tiny bar but seems to do everything so well that you don't notice. No food, no cigarette sales - just cigars, good drinks, and a good time.

This review is for the Stone Oak location!
If you look at my Dolce Ultra Lounge review, you'll see that Dolce was lame so we walked next door to Swig North and it was so much better!!! It's a very cool place to have martini's...really great martini's at that! They have an extensive cute menu that makes you want to try them all! The waitstaff was very attentive as the manager. Signs of a great running establishment!

One of the best bars in the area
Great service and well-made cocktails about summarize this downtown institution. The music usually good too. The mojito is really a highlight for me, and it doesn't seem to burn too much of a hole in your pocket. I usually go either here or to Drink after work - both are relatively tourist-free and good places to find locals.

Expertly-made cocktails by Minton M. at InsiderPages
You wouldn't believe you're on the Riverwalk - it's a real find. The servers and friendly and although the bar is small, it's very intimate. They don't serve food but they have a nice outside seating area for when the weather's just right. They probably have the most extensive cigar list for anyone in San Antonio - great spot for meeting a friend or two.
