    Great drinks, attentive bar tender. Got water without asking, free popcorn was bomb. Super nice staff even brought us an extra empanada so that we could try every single one.

    If you're feeling "adventurous" & want to have a good time WITHOUT being reckless, ask for a "Sean Be Special"...it'll take care of you for the night. Just don't drink clear & make sure to EAT!

    Friday is the best night to hit up this spot. Saturdays can be hit or miss. Liable to see a pitbull or two hanging around out front.

    They're open until 2 a.m. and sometimes even later (call and check as you're heading over if it's after 2)! Perfect post-bar treat.

    Staff shouldn't be checking in at Somar when it isn't open either, JoAn. You're missing the customer loyalty opportunity.
