Texas’ first Margaritaville restaurant opened within walking distance of The Alteza in downtown San Antonio. Margaritaville’s new home is in The Shops at Rivercenter, and it took no time for our residents to join in the fun. Inspired by singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” bar is destined to become a new downtown hot spot.
The restaurant and bar seats 315 people and spans 10,000 square feet. It will showcase live entertainment, play music like “Margaritaville,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Fins” and welcome guests to the patio overlooking the San Antonio River Walk. “We are ecstatic to bring the Margaritaville lifestyle to the Lone Star State,” said David Crabtree, President/CEO for International Meal Company U.S. to the San Antonio Express. “Margaritaville is all about indulging in great food and drinks delivered with outstanding service while you enjoy great music and escape reality.”
Some of the highlights from the menu include the Cheeseburger in Paradise, Volcano Nachos, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, and the “Drunken” Shrimp Skillet. For their thirsty guests…..LandShark lager or other alcoholic beverages will be served along with the margaritas, of course.
The restaurant will be open daily starting at 11 a.m., while the retail store opens at 10 a.m. There will be nightly entertainment from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the patio and from 9 p.m. until midnight on the inside stage. The restuarant closes at midnight on Sundays through Thursdays and closes at 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Welcome to the neighborhood Margaritaville, we’re happy you chose downtown San Antonio.
