  • What is parking like at Picks?
    There are three other bars/clubs in the shopping center and they sometimes have large events, not often, but at times the lot can be full during the week. On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, our lot up front and in the back is open & FREE to park. On Fridays & Saturdays, prior to 8pm, the lot is also pretty open with the exception of large events. After 8pm on Fridays & Saturdays, we do offer FREE VALET parking but you have to park with the team directly in front of Picks. Valet is used by all three of the other bars/clubs so if you go to the other Valet teams, which are all the same company, they WILL CHARGE YOU! If you park directly in front of Picks and you tell them you are going to Picks then you will be allowed to park at no charge or they will even park your car for you. The Valet team is not compensated or employed by Picks Bar, they are provided as a remedy to help with parking at all bars/club in the Ridge Shopping Center. Mistakes can happen so if you ever have an issue with parking, please do not hesitate to call us while you are outside; my name is Jessica and our phone number is 210-253-9220.
  • Does Picks accept walk-ins?
    Yes. Picks accepts walk ins every day that we are open!
  • Do I need a reservation to walk into Picks?
    No, you do not need a reservation to enter the bar. However, if you would like guaranteed seating on Fridays & Saturdays, after 8pm, for our evening entertainment then we do recommend you make a paid reservation. Reservations guarantee seating by at least 9:15pm. On most weekends, we do sell out of Tables. This means that customers who do not have a reservation will have to opt for standing room or seating on our patio. Occasionally, there are a few tables that are left open on weekends but you do have to arrive early to grab those tables - this is not always the case so don't hold us to it.
  • What is your policy regarding cancellations for paid reservations?
    We do NOT offer refunds. If you cancel the day before or the days leading up to the event, you will receive a credit for the future to be used within 30 days of canceled event. If you cancel the day of the event, we will not provide a credit or refund no matter the circumstance. If a credit is applied, it can only be used for Tables/VIP sections and NOT liquor, beer, wine, or food.
