Music Venue
“Just across the street from Tucker's Kozy Korner is one of San Antonio's premier live music venues, Alamo City Music Hall. Depending on whom one asks, this place is either on par with a cesspool or the next Apollo Theater, take your pick, but we're kind of partial to any entertainment option that makes EastPoint an even cooler place to live. As with any establishment in a warehouse district in a transitional neighborhood, safety should always be of paramount importance....but - and this is a huge but (ahem) - there's nothing wrong with the area. You're more likely to encounter problems in the mosh pit inside than you are on the street!”
