San Antonio's Nightlife is Alive with Laughs, Libations, Music and More

San Antonio may not be the city that never sleeps, but you can bet they never stop partying. In fact, they have an entire three weeks in April completely dedicated to partying, called Fiesta. 

However, everyone's idea of what constitutes "fun" varies, so there's a wide range of options on this list, depending upon whether you're looking to party yourself into a stupor or just relax with a couple glasses of fine wine. Read on...

First stop, Dorcol Distilling Company! If you're looking for something unique, it doesn't get better than the apricot brandy made right on site at this fabulous venue. They're always hosting cool events with live music, and sometimes local artists, so be sure to check out their website or social media for details. 

If you're feeling like a little nibble, music and something just a bit different, check out Carmen's de la Calle Cafe for live Flamenco dancing, great tapas, and a romantic vibe that's undeniable.

Of course, if you're wanting to get rowdy, start your night off with a giggle at the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club!
