Fodor's Expert Review Sunset Station
Four live-music stages, five dance floors, and three restaurants entertain in a turn-of-the-20th-century Southern Pacific train depot at the heart of downtown San Antonio. There's something for everyone here: the nightly music choices range from country-Western to merengue, and the food runs the gamut from Aldaco's Mexican Cuisine to Ruth's Chris Steak House. The depot is open during the day, but the bands take the stage after dark. Call ahead to see whether any nationally known acts are scheduled.
