Open in the evenings, Somar Bar and Lounge is a great place to have fun or to relax after a more busy, tiring day. You can meet so many people in the bar, unwind and have a great evening, not worrying about anything. The service is good, the prices are acceptable, and you can stay until 2am in the morning.

If you're on holiday, that's the place where you want to be entertained.
