Bar 1919 has been publicly critical of Governor Abbott and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for shutting down Texas bars while other high-traffic, high-turnover businesses such as gyms, amusement parks and restaurants were allowed to operate.
“Why are 51% establishments still closed while theme parks, restaurants, hotels, lakes, beaches, gyms and sporting venues allowed to be open?” read a September 9 post on the business’ Facebook page. “Cowboy stadium will have 40,000 fans at 50% capacity. AND Walmart open? Walmart was scary before COVID.”
The speakeasy-inspired bar — located at 1420 S. Alamo St. in the Blue Star Arts complex — will reopen Monday, November 2, at 75% capacity. Bar 1919 will be open nightly from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.
