Bars and nightlife in San Marcos River

Top bars

“Best movie theater experience ever! Large, comfy recliners. ALL the seats are good, but we like to sit in one of the back row corners. There are 2 seats in each corner with a big space between you and the other seats. Great view of the screen. Push a lighted button at your seat to call a wait staff to order from their full menu. Get dinner, snacks, or a bowl of cookies and ice cream. It's all good! Plus there's a tray to hold all this that will rotate right over your comfy recliner. There's a lot more to do at The SPOT... bowling, full bar with comfortable seating to hang out with friends, etc., but we go right to the theater!”

“We wouldn't normally recommend a chain restaurant but this one has a deck that overlooks the river. Outside seating is a MUST.”
