Planted in the middle of Oakland's Uptown district, the mellow drinker will appreciate Somar's low-key vibe. Guests can migrate to the bar section to catch the game on the TV. Somar also features a DJ and dancing. The bar is about as noisy as it gets — plan for booming speakers and chatty crowds everywhere.
You may be better off finding a table during the week, as weekends at the bar tend to be packed. The dress code at Somar is as relaxed as the ambience, so wear whatever suits you.
Drivers should plan to park on the street when dining at Somar's Telegraph Avenue residence.
Your tab at Somar will generally run you about $30 per person.
