More than 100 years ago, Teddy Roosevelt recruited men for his Rough Riders unit at this dark, wooded bar (they were outfitted for the Spanish-American War at nearby Fort Sam Houston). Constructed in 1859 on the site of William Menger’s earlier successful brewery and saloon, the bar was moved from its original location in the Victorian hotel lobby in 1956, but 90 percent of its historic furnishings remain intact. Spanish Civil War uniforms hang on the walls. It’s still one of the prime spots in town to toss back a few.
