Bar Arriba

Destination: Samara

As the sky fades to dark, Bar Arriba lights up. Vivid red lights, four plasma screen TVs and energy radiating from within, this bar is a hotspot for silly nights out with friends, letting loose after work, or just pure partying during a weekend in Samara.

Live music blasting; the well-known Samara bar is as alluring from the inside as it is from the street below. Get into the groove with a frozen mojito, $5, blended with mint, lime, rum and sugar, rushes with sweetness that livens the night ahead. Catch them on a special night, like Girls Night on Mondays, for great deals like two-for-one drinks for all ladies.

Recently updated to include lunch and dinner choices like you'd expect to find in a sports bar in the U.S., Bar Arriba is more than just a drinking bar.

Towering with mouthwatering design, a Thai chicken salad, $5, topped with mango, crunchy bell peppers, scallions and minced peanuts, big enough to share with friends. In between cocktails and conversation, a saucy order of chicken wings, $7, fit the energy of the bar — especially if a soccer game is on TV.

Ambiance

Restaurant by day, borderline dance club by night. A great place to have bar food and mingle with Samara locals or fellow spirited vacationers.

Accustomed to more spontaneous crowd, servers give plenty of space, taking orders slowly without rushing.
