The drink menu includes “Snozzberries Taste Like Snozzberries” and “Violet You’re Turning Violet.”

Local San Antonio artist, Colton Valentine, known for his iconic Santa Mural, designed extravagant props throughout the bar.

“I basically designed and built all the props; me and Jessica, who manages the bar, teamed up for the super immersive vibe,” said Valentine.

The venue is open to all ages till 9 p.m., and after that 21 years and over.
