Bar owners Jeret Peña and Chris Erck have opened a new drinking concept at the entrance to the Pearl Brewery on Pearl Parkway.
Experienced bartenders Peña (The Brooklynite) and Erck (Swig, The Worm, TacoLand) are combining cocktails and craft brew in a concept they’re calling The Icehouse. It’s housed in a funky warehouse that’s being converted into a cocktail, craft brew heaven, a complex devoted to good drinking and snacking.
The first phase is open. It’s a cocktail bar called the Golden Gloves Social House, and it’s a place where Peña is offering drinks at affordable prices. The rest of The Icehouse will spring into life later this summer. Expect a beer garden as well as food from some of San Antonio’s capable food trucks.
The concept is located at 401 Pearl Parkway at the entrance to the Pearl.
