Sire Bar

Handcrafted Cocktails at their Finest

Honoring the infamous King Ranch, home of the only Triple Crown thoroughbred horse from Texas, Sire Bar is located directly off the lobby featuring a full-service bar specializing in brown spirits and hand-crafted cocktails. With cheese and charcuterie available to order from Bocado, pair it perfectly with our selection of world class sparkling and still wines.

In 1853 Captain Richard King and Gideon K. Lewis founded The King Ranch with a modest 15,500 acres. Throughout the years, the ranch grew to an area larger than the state of Rhode Island. One of the ranch’s many legacies was developing champion thoroughbred and quarter horse sires whose blood lines are still sought after today. The most heralded thoroughbred from The King Ranch was Assault, the first and only Texas foaled and bred Triple Crown Winner. After overcoming a series of maladies, including one that led him to have a permanent limp, “The Club-Footed Comet” began a very successful racing career. In 1946 after winning the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and Belmont stakes, he became the seventh of 13 horses to win the Triple Crown. Here at La Cantera Resort & Spa we honor the tremendous legacy of The King Ranch and its exalted sires.
