“Nice space”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Not sure how they are staying in business since this chic, cavernous restaurant/bar was empty. We came for sushi happy hour which was a good value. The drinks are fair. There are too many bars in the area that are offering happy hour martinis using premium liguor. Baca could do better. The atmosphere is fabulous but the bar scene was boring. But to be fair, my visit was off-season and during the week. Hopefully, the weekends are better.

“Good late night spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Suuuuuper trendy spot to enjoy some late night drinks. If your lucky enough to get a table you will get great service. If your stuck standing you will have trouble getting rounds at the bar. Good thing about this place is that it makes sense in a t shirt or a suit.

“Bar confused over its identity with substandard service...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Visited sunday night about 5:30pm. Not busy, and idle barkeeps standing around.
Ordered lettuce wraps and korean bbq wings. What arrived was spicy chicken nuggets and wraps were three tiny chicken pieces with iceberg lettuce. WRONG!
Bartender swore they were korean wings.
We flagged manager who confirmed they were spicy chicken nuggets. But he did nothing to resolve it.
Cold bar and atmosphere...poor inattentive service. Calls itself a sports bar, but it has an identity crisis. Manager was a youngster who seemed fearful of his staff to rectify the situation to any satisfaction.
With so many other bars and eateries in the area, take a pass on this establishment...

“Awesome atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Great atmosphere and food is phenomenal! There were 7 of us and we drank and ate the night away. This is my 6th time here,I will be back and bring many more friends!! It was a little pricey, drinks were just ok, stay away from the sangria way to much carbonation not enough fruit. We stuck to the basics cranbury and vodkas, beers and a few different kinds if shots!!
