A new Schertz bar located in a renovated 1930s home is ready to make it official after a few weeks of soft business with a grand-opening party that kicks off today and runs through the weekend.
Bar House, 533 Main St., features spacious outdoor spaces, including a front lawn, artificial turfed backyard and covered deck area. The interior is decorated with reclaimed wood from the original property.
“I’m kind of like a Chip and Joanna Gaines type, and took this old house and made a bar,” said owner Nick Marquez, a Schertz native. “We completely gutted the place, stripping it down to the framing, and tried to figure out how to use the old wood.”

Bar House features a full bar with a craft cocktail and house shot menu. There’s also plenty of beer, from domestics to craft lines, and wine in a variety of forms.
There are plans to have live music on weekends and yard games, and food trucks will regularly be parked next to the bar.
Marquez also operates the spacious Old Main Ice House in Cibolo, located less than three miles away. When the Old Main closes at midnight, the idea is for patrons to scoot on over to Schertz for a nightcap.
“The things you see in San Antonio — where you have that big environment to drink and hang out — we want people to know that we have those places in Schertz and Cibolo too,” Marquez said.
