1. The Friendly Spot
943 S Alamo, (210) 224-BEER, thefriendlyspot.com

You’d be forgiven for mistaking this Southtown ice house for a dog park. Above the din of the crowd or the occasional Spurs game, you’ll hear pooches barking next to their boozed-up owners. The laid-back, outdoor setting makes it a perfect place for four-legged friends and, with recent renovations, we expect to see even more dog owners pick The Friendly Spot as their favorite watering hole. With a monster new bar in the back, The Friendly Spot’s tap count jumped from 20 to 76 — almost all are craft beers, many of them Texas brews. Their micheladas are no slouch, either. Our neighborhood Friendlies grabbed that category again this year.
