    More of a club vibe cocktail bar, at least on weekends. Everything here is really solid. Plus the bar is amazing. Check out their Sunday happy hour

    150 different drinks aren't the only reason to come to Sanctuaria. Try the plump camarónes, which are simmered in a thick, garlicky, peppery tomato sauce. Delicious! http://bit.ly/19dbsdM

    This is the best place for tapas and cocktails! Try the banana rum cheesecake, chicken skewers, & the wicked good shrimp. But don't come here if you aren't prepared to tip. The bartenders are amazing!

    Try the caipirinha, Brazil's best-loved drink. It starts with Cabana Cachaça, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and mint leaves plucked right from Sanctuaria's garden. http://bit.ly/ZtLsJz

    The Frita Sliders are killer. Ignore the Beggars Purse and Onion & Poblano Rings. When they say 'Sangrita' they literally mean 'small sangria'.

    I love this place but if you want good service either make a reservation or come during a slow time. Literally 7 people "served" us tonight and it was awkward and lacked communication.
