The Monterey Returns to San Antonio for One Night Food Pop-Up


  • Instagram / Hot Joy
Former neighborhood bar The Monterey is bringing back your favorite dishes for one night – with a food pop-up at Hot Joy in Southtown – on Saturday, Sept. 28.

If that wasn't enough, the Southtown bar is also hosting a Texas Tiki Week bash that evening, with cocktails from local Tiki Tuesday legends like David Naylor and Javi Gutierrez.

The Monty dinner pop-up will run from 4 p.m. to midnight, while the Tiki Bash will begin at 10 p.m.

This will probably be the first and last pop-up for The Monterey, which closed in 2015, said Hot Joy Bar manager Nick Ivarra.   See related PDF monty_menu__1_.pdf The event will also feature local pop-up vintage shop Top-Stitched, as well as music from DJ El Gato, from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., and a midnight performance from King Pelican.
