Fun bar that I used to go to with friends studying Spanish at the language school. Always had a good time when it was busy! Decent night if it's dead.

Great place to dance and get your drink on. DJ is super friendly and so is the bar staff. Lots of locals and tourists alike. great view of the town from the second floor.

I ended up in bar Arriba nearly every night that I was in Samara... the staff are great, the atmosphere is fun and the drinks are great.

Try the chilli guaro shots, it will put hairs on your chest!

It's definitely one of the best spots in Samara - can't wait until I return! :)

Considering the owner is from Nebraska, he makes an awesome mojito! And thanks for the free wifi :) More waiters would be helpful.

Two for One Margaritas were awesome with Cerviche', which was excellent and lots of it. However, it was difficult sitting on the stools! More comfortable seating would have been better, especially after drinks! lol

Not bad on the price, service was slow, but hey, I was on vacation!
