Nestled on the west bank of the San Pedro Creek, neighboring the Alameda Theater which will shine again after its rehabilitation, is the new cocktail bar Sojourn. Derik Cortez and Andrew Carrillo, two well-known names in the local food and beverage industry, combined to bring a refreshing escape to the middle of downtown San Antonio.
Cortez is the mixology mind behind the drink menus at Box Street Social and Mixtli. Carillo is the owner of longtime local burger joint Armadillos Texas Style Burgers. The business partners and friends grew a vacation vibes sort of spot out of what was once the moody, low-lit Juniper Tar before it closed in 2018.
