Concrete Jungle opened a bit south of San Antonio's downtown in December 2014. Its look was a bit rough-and-tumble, recalling the graffiti-meets-tiki vibe of NYC's Painkiller
New York, NY
. Like that bar, the focus here was on creating high-quality tiki cocktails, a mix of classics and their own modern recipes, led by beverage director Rene Trevino. There was a small menu of bar food available (including Avocado Crab Rangoon); bar owner Rudolfo Martinez made his name with a popular food truck. Concrete Jungle closed in August 2016.
