Staff recommendation:  For a chill night, hang at The Local Bar one night. If you want the full pub crawl experience, walk 10 minutes from downtown to Alamo Street at Durango. Work your way down the strip stopping at Alamo Street Eat Bar, Bar America, The Friendly Spot and Beethoven's before you cab (210-222-2222) back.
