What's Open on Christmas Day

Places Open on Christmas Day in San Antonio


Need a last-minute gift for an unexpected guest? Christmas dinner ruined and you have no backup? Or maybe you just ran out of liquid refreshments. Whatever the case may be, there are a few businesses that are still open on Christmas Day-- though their hours may be limited. Here is a list:

1. Walgreens

All stores are open from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on both Christmas Eve and Day. Pharmacies, however will only be open in stores that are normally 24-hours and select other stores, so click the link to see if the pharmacy is open if you are in need of an emergency prescription.

2. San Antonio Zoo

Surprised that the zoo is open on Christmas? I know I was! But if you think about it, the animals don't celebrate Christmas, right? (haha!) Regular zoo hours apply, which means you can visit from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., though you are allowed to stay inside until 6:00 p.m. as long as you entered the park before 5:00.

3. Biga on the Banks

This upscale restaurant is right on the River Walk and perfect for a special holiday meal for the family that doesn't want to cook. Choose from Osso Bucco or Angue beef amongst other main courses with a great selection of sides and desserts to go with it.

4. Frederick's Bistro

Another upscale restaurant choice on both Christmas Day and Eve, call (210) 888-1500 for more information about menus and pricing.

5. Grand Hyatt San Antonio

The Grand Hyatt serves a Christmas Day buffet. Call for prices and hours.

6. Luby's
