Paint the Town Red and Still Get in Bed Before Midnight

You may not be a night owl, but that doesn't mean you don't like to have fun. If you're looking for exciting things to do in San Antonio that won't keep you out until 2:00 am, then check out these top 10 ideas!

If you love sports and good food, head to the northside's Draft Sportsbar & Grill. It's the perfect place to go to watch the Spurs game, and ladies don't mind because not only do they have a nice atmosphere and great drinks, but the elevated bar food is made from scratch by one of San Antonio's favorite chefs, Edward Villarreal. 

If food and drinks are what you have in mind then Nao Latin Gastro Bar is another excellent choice. Enjoy craft cocktails and an array of fantastic cuisine filled with vibrant Latin flavors and ingredients. If you're doing a bar hop at the Pearl Brewery, make this your first stop. 

For live entertainment, The Tobin and Majestic Theatres are always featuring the best acts that come through town. If you love comedy, then definitely check out the improv at The Overtime Theatre and Alamo City Improv. These troupes fly under the radar, but the laughs are guaranteed!
