It’s needless to say that live music is a staple in San Antonian culture. From pop, soul, country, rock and jazz, the Alamo City is known for its love and appreciation of music and art. Here are three of San Antonio’s favorite live music locales.

The Rustic

The Rustic is an ideal location for live music and grub. The openness of this casual spot allows for guests to feel comfortable with their personal space, and the nightly live music is always free. The farm-to-table food and local drinks are considered top notch by San Antonio residents. The Rustic features a large outdoor clearing with tables and chairs for dining and a stage where a variety of country and folk artists perform. The Rustic is located in The Rim on La Cantera Parkway.


Cozy, cool, swanky.  These words could be used to describe LUNA, a classic, sit-down, live music nightclub. The lounge features a bar and dance floor with food, drinks, and what’s been said as exceptional R&B, soul, blues, jazz and reggae music on stage. Admission will cost you and reservations are encouraged; however some nights require neither. Located on San Pedro Avenue, LUNA is defined by its vintage jazz club ambience and laid back element.

Jazz TX

For a night out on the town, Jazz TX never fails to provide an intimate atmosphere, first-rate food, and some of the city’s best jazz. Despite having limited opportunities due to COVID-19, Jazz TX is still San Antonio’s favorite club for live jazz and even streams from the stage every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. The restaurant serves premium food and drinks for reasonable prices through highly rated service. Located in the bottling department of the Pearl Brewery, this sophisticated and renowned jazz club is open on most days during the evening and features Texas based jazz bands and musicians.

I’m a junior at Churchill and it’s my third year writing for the newspaper. I’ve always enjoyed writing and when was asked if I wanted to write for one of the school publications my freshman year, I took the opportunity to do so. My greatest passion is in music; I love playing guitar and piano in my spare time. I also enjoy fly fishing, cooking, traveling, and longboarding with my friends. I’m a pretty quiet person, so being part of the newspaper staff has helped me open up when working with the wonderful people that make up our staff.
