The food is looking pretty tasty, but I'm not 100% convinced of the drinks after the statement "Concrete Jungle will focus on rum drinks with plenty of mezcal and some tequila drinks".

And "..it's a Latin American and Caribbean-style tiki bar" and "The name aims to give a sense of the exotic nature of tiki but with an urban sense of style." usually means it's a Tiki-Lite, tropical bar, with maybe some themed mugs.

But then there is this statement: "..."My first love was rum," Guerrero said. "I have been pretty obsessed with making tikis for a while."

…which is two out of two getting it right, so maybe we should give these guys a break until we get to see pictures :)
Media coverage is always demanding statements, and then editing them, and one never knows what the real deal is until it's done.

Would like to try in the next couple weeks before we forget about it. Maybe a Tuesday night? Can carpool with Shanti and Trey and maybe Jonny.

Texans REALLY love their tequila, so they're doing what will help business. I'm sure they'll steer patrons into trying rum drinks.
Some of the Tex-Mex and BBQ restaurants in San Antonio are extremely kitschy. Texans aren't afraid of weird decor.
There are some pics of the place on yelp and it looks low key to me.

I visited this place. The drinks were great and the bartender was friendly. I must admit the place is rough around the edges. I was in San Antonio with friends and insisted that we go. When we found it and their first comment was "Is this place still in business". It was a cinder block building with no sign at the time. This place is further south of the trendy southern part of San Antonio.
