I recently moved to the Aransas Pass area and discovered the Rialto by chance. The pick up local musicians on Tues. nights are absolutely wonderful. It is happy hour from 5-7pm, and tapas are available to munch. Give the place a try!

We visited on a Tuesday open mic. Our teen was able to get on the rotation for piano/ukulele, and the regulars were kind and welcoming. Drinks during HH were $2.50, so that was bueno. Bear in mind that soda is $3, so it is more cost effective to get your pinot grigio on. This is an older theatre with only... More

It's been a year or 2 since we visited the Rialto and what a fabulous surprise when we walked into the theater. The bar area, with table seating and a few talk counter-height seats facing the stage was a welcome addition. Very good variety of wines and beers. The walls are down to open mortar and brick-wooden floors add to... More

Their goal is to revive the dowtown area with galleries and more. I have been to some excellent concerts there and the acoustics are might fine. Since this is an old theatre it is perfect... More

Very old theater. Saw "Yours Truly, Patsy Cline", which was hilarous. It is also a small art gallery of local artists, and jewely makers.

It was our first visit to the Rialto. It is a great renovation of a 1930's movie theatre. The show was funny. The vocals were great. The band was super! It took you into Patsy's life and short career....it was fun and moving........I cried GO...it's well worth the ticket price!.
