When I first moved to San Antonio in 1987 I worked for a city development agency located in St. Paul’s Square. Now 20+ years later I’m back, living nearby. The area is much quieter now that the trains no longer blow their horns as they pass through.
The historical district seems to be on the verge of becoming a popular destination for tourists and locals. Hopefully the influx of UTSA football fans beginning this Saturday will increase the visibility of the area.
Entertainment options in St. Paul Square includes shows at the Cameo Theatre and live music at Sunset Station. Restaurants in the district include Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Aldaco’s Sunset Station. Prime Bar and Alibis’ Sports & Spirits provide drink specials and outside patios. VIA’s yellow trolley line and the Hop On Hop Off tour bus make regular trips from downtown to St. Paul Square. Amtrak passenger trains depart from the station located between Sunset Station and the Alamodome.
It would be great to have more restaurants open in St. Paul Square. I would love to patronize a small pizza place or a homey bookstore/cafe in the neighborhood.
