SF Weekly's Description

On weekday afternoons, a young after-work crowd comes to the Mars Bar & Restaurant looking to get drunk and load up on starchy American food. On weekend nights, house music fans come to the Mars Bar looking to hear some casual DJ beats. At all times, however, people come to the Mars Bar for its small back patio, whose vaguely tropical setting is one of the few places to sip a cocktail outdoors in SOMA. And if the food and music aren't your thing, there's also a pool table for a few games of 8 ball.

    Hit up the heated outdoor patio after work and snag $3 bottle beer and 1/2 price Buffalo Wings on Mondays, $2 Tecates and Tacos on Tuesdays, and cheap pizza and beer on Wednesdays.

  • HOUSTONĀ® on 09/03/10

    The seared ahi tuna salad is fresh and delicious!!

  • Thrillist on 02/13/14

    This SOMA bar does Taco Tuesdays about as well as you can do them: with $2 carnitas tacos and $2 beers. The special runs pretty much all day, and they've got a sun-stroked back patio.
