Our HISTORY

San Antonio’s first spark of electricity took place here at The Espee and the energy has never left.

Nestled in the heartbeat of downtown San Antonio neighboring St Paul Square, The Espee was originally named The Southern Pacific Railroad’s Sunset Limited Train Route. It quickly became a famous train station that served as a central connection to a multitude of states such as California, Missouri, Louisiana, and many more. Over the years it earned nicknames such as “The Building of 1000 lights”, “The Crossroads of America” and “The S.P.”

Once known as Sunset Station, the newly renovated The Espee brings premiere live entertainment to downtown San Antonio. Creating a space that is truly enjoyable for all.
