A polished downtown spot with the feel of a neighborhood bar..
Inside the century-old building, the metal bar is surrounded on either side by floor-to-ceiling shelves stacked with bottles. An adjoining room and enclosed courtyard provide extra seating away from the televisions in the bar area. A mixed crowd keeps the place buzzing with energy late into the night.
Concentrating on fine spirits, Zinc gives diners a chance to sample from an extensive bar list. Champagne is the theme, but wine and aperitifs hold their own on a list that could serve as a manual on how to drink well. Cigars and vintage ports round out the impressive offerings. The menu is small but choice, with rich snacks like a lamb chutney sandwich, escargot and chicken pâtè with pear preserves. Lighter bread and cheese plates and desserts are also available. A different, full dinner menu is offered on Friday and Saturday nights.
One Night at Zinc. My girlfriend and I were in San Antonio last month and just happened to come upon Zinc. We walked in and right away it was very comfortable. It had a very laid back atmosphere and the service was first class. We had great conversation with the very personable staff. It was a very classy establishment, not like the usual loud, trashy, fall down drunk-type bars. Everyone seemed very relaxed and content. You must stop in at Zinc and you will experience exactly what I am talking about. Go at night.
