Dine At The Historic Spot In Texas That Was The State’s First Bar After Prohibition
Riley’s Tavern in New Braunfels is one of the oldest bars in Texas – in fact, it was the very first (legal) watering hole in the Lone Star State after Prohibition was repealed. Opened in 1933, this iconic landmark is still standing, and you can practically feel the decades of history when you step inside. The bar also has an incredible food menu, making it a totally bucket list-worthy stop next time you’re in the Hill Country.
