OUR PICK: Faust Tavern
, 517 E Woodlawn Ave, (210) 257-0628 facebook.com/TheFaustTavern
Hoping to impress a Tinder date but not trying to run into anyone you know? Faust Tavern, a cozy bar with satanic vibes, has the atmosphere you’re looking for. Hidden in plain view along the St. Mary’s Strip, Faust is the perfect spot to duck into when you’re trying seduce a stranger you swiped right on. Flirt in a shadowy corner or over tasty southern grub with no distractions — aside from, maybe, the horror movie playing on the bar’s flatscreen. Or maybe you’re not really in it for the conversation — and want to spend the night making eyes at each other at a live metal show. For an admittedly creepy bar, Faust is full of friendly staff (pouring a wide variety of beers), endearing decor (baby doll heads turned into lamps) and wholesome home cooking. See where the night takes you.
