Welcome to the restoration of the 1929 Alamo National Bank Building into the Drury Plaza Hotel
In 1929, a construction began on the $2,500,000 skyscraper, after the Alamo National Bank had outgrown its first bank building. San Antonio was at the point, the largest and richest city in Texas.
Using Art Deco ornamentation and the principles of the Beaux-Arts, the architecture firm of Graham, Anderson, Probst, and White designed the 24-story skyscraper and incorporated the Texas Stars and southwest patterns. This architectural masterpiece has been a landmark in the San Antonio skyline since its construction.
Selected by Gourmet Magazine as one of the "top five restaurants in Texas," Biga on the Banks delivers fine dining with a Texan accent. Enjoy Chef Bruce Auden's creative cuisine featuring seafood, Texas lamb, game and beef while reveling in the views of the River Walk. Private dining rooms with river views and barge dining available.
The new Tobin Center for the Performing Arts brings an eclectic mix of arts and music to the increasingly dynamic downtown San Antonio area. The Tobin Center combines modern design and historic architecture, preserving and incorporating the original facade of the historic Municipal Auditorium into the new additions. Patrons can enjoy performances in the state-of-the-art 1,759-seat performance hall, as well as the 250-seat studio theater, and the outdoor performance plaza that connects to the famous River Walk. The Tobin Center is the new home to the San Antonio Symphony, Ballet San Antonio, Opera San Antonio, The Children's Chorus of San Antonio and more.

San Antonio-style Mexican food. Serving on the banks of the River Walk since 1946.
The restaurant founded in 1946 by Alfred F. Beyer, sits on land first granted title in 1777 by the King of Spain. The Spanish Colonial period hacienda became the core of the new business. The cedar door and window lintels, the fireplace, and thick rock walls, are still evident inside the building.
Casa Rio was the first San Antonio business to open its doors to the River and take advantage of the River's setting. Canoes, gondolas, and paddle boats, evolving into tour and dinner boats, began here and helped create the Riverwalk of today.
Our picturesque location combined with our authentic Mexican food menu offer the perfect setting for your next dinner party, banquet, reception, family gathering or celebration.
Casa Rio offers lunch, dinner and cocktail boat service. Casa Rio makes arrangements with the private boat operator on behalf of the party’s host.
