Drink in History at Boerne’s Newest Nightlife Spot: Salvador Dobbs

By  | 


River Road in Boerne just got a little feistier with the opening of Salvador Dobbs, a full craft bar plus beer on tap, with a 1920s speakeasy theme. Opened in January 2018, this new addition to the Hill Country nightlife has ample indoor seating, a stunning porch and patio facing the river, and live music from local musicians. If you need to do something while you socialize, pool, shuffleboard, and darts are all available.

For nearly 30 years, the building was a toy shop. Staying in the same family, the structure’s story of place is cared on with its new purpose. Salvador Dobbs is located at 512 River Road, next door to Little Gretel Restaurant, which is the perfect spot to enjoy a Czech and German dinner before heading to the bar, Wednesday through Saturday. Also, please note Salvador Dobbs is a 21-and-over only bar, open Wednesday through Monday, from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m. If busy rooms are not your preference, but you’re looking to be in the middle of it all while enjoying your own space, then check out the option to book the Champagne Room, a secret area hidden behind a bookshelf next to the bar. Beautifully furnished and comfortable with a real Prohibition feel, there are many perks to be had when this spot is all yours!

Overall, this bar hosts many historical details which are everywhere you look. Check out the lit display set into the floor by the restrooms, and the vintage hat boxes from the 1920s and ‘30s near the front door which inspired the name Salvador Dobbs! The place is an experience not quite like any other in Boerne. Pop in for the evening or plan an official trip to the area and stay literally right above it all, courtesy of Airbnb. Events occur regularly, and music is always playing, so keep tabs on the fun via Facebook. Salvador Dobbs tips their hat to patrons who consume responsibly and take advantage of ride sharing.
