Winner: Still Golden Social House
1900 Broadway St.,(210) 616-2212
A celebratory funeral week was held when Stay Golden Social House, Still Golden's predecessor, closed its doors in June of 2017. And less than a year later, the quasi-new Still Golden has filled that glove-shaped hole left by the beloved bar, and then some.
A few more dollars were tossed into design, and the area's premier patio bar now serves as a beacon (no, really, they have more bar neon than we care to count) that draws in young and old for a night of hedonism down Grayson. They've upgraded rasquache charm that belied the original location for a sleek patio, a bustling game room with all the favorites, lots more screens and plenty of indoor space filled with chilly HVAC air. Still Golden, still neci@, and that was enough to earn them this year's Best New Bar award.
