    easy, mixed crowd for both happy hour and dancing late. never a cover, always a good crowd. bartenders are fabulous and take care of you, djs are excellent (especially saturday and sunday).

    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!

    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.

    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.
