  • Blusestar is great to have in SA but it often features too much local culture at the expense of the rest of the world in the art it exhibits. Room for improivement and open mindedness.  more »

  • Love this little community thing going on. Brings me back to the East Village in NYC back before it became gentrified and full of wannabes. I hope this eclectic vibe stays. Can hear some great music, buy some local art or knickknacks. Go visit and support your local community.
  • This place was enjoyable, I am studying architecture and I needed to study some color figuration's and looking at perspective sculptures that mean differently. Architecture Design was weird becomes it comes form the heart.
  • Blue Star is a San Antonio jewel. Located in the heart of Southtown right on the river, what a perfect setting for a contemporary arts museum.
  • As a new comer in town that Artist location give a spring to new unknown talents and the premises by the river walk are very inspiring.
  • We took a bike ride from downtown on the b cycle kiosk. Great ride.. great beer

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
