Though a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour terra firma in style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a 3-hour double-decker-bus pub-crawl experience for up to 45 people from The Lion & Rose British Restaurant & Pub (a $398 value). This Groupon is valid Sunday–Thursday.
The Lion & Rose's double-decker bus runs up to 45 guests on 3-hour pub crawls between any of the establishment's four San Antonio locations. Originally built in 1962 in Bristol, United Kingdom, the two-storied buggy roams the streets powered entirely by biodiesel fuel and the applause of traffic cops. While not included in this deal, passengers halted at each pub can sample from a diverse draught-beer list highlighting European brews such as Harp, Young's Chocolate Stout, and Boddingtons, or peruse menus inspired by traditional English and Scottish fare. Each tavern entertains visitors and their courtly heralds with plasma flat-screen TVs, open-mic performances, and darts games under lighting from vintage, iron wall sconces.
The Lion & Rose British Restaurant & Pub
The interiors of The Lion & Rose pubs emulate the convivial atmosphere of British and Irish settings, with each corner of the restaurant ornamented with vintage wall sconces and handmade wood decor. The draught list overflows with imported pints such as Boddingtons and Smithwick's, while the menu includes unusual specialties such as chips and curry alongside shepherd's pie and bangers, mash, and beans. As befits a sports bar, locations boast plasma TVs tuned to the biggest games as well as dartboards where friends can challenge one another.
