The House of Dignity features a hidden basement and a speakeasy

A basement is a rare find in San Antonio. Just ask Pee-Wee Herman, who found out the hard way when he asked to see one at the Alamo in 1985.

But there are a few basements dotted around Alamo City, including a recently listed 122-year-old Dignowity home with a hidden basement and dive bar that has an “vibe that’s the perfect hangout place for you and guests,” according to it the listing of Lindsey Musch with Magnolia Realty.

Access to the hidden basement of the house at 511 Montana St. appears to be through the bookshelf. The ground floor is well lit with its exposed bricks painted white.
