Tonight, Tuesday March 9th, is the grand opening of ~BAR BASIC~, which was formerly the Gallery Lounge in SoMa. New owner Mike Limanon repainted the space, re-did the seating, flooring, and lighting, and put in a new bar top. Look for more of a neighborhood vibe, and fewer private parties. Did someone say party? According to LiveSOMA, tonight’s grand opening party is going to feature “a night full of drink specials and raffle prizes. The drink specials include 2 for 1 beverages from 6-7pm and starting at 7pm, they’re giving away 150 tacos with the first 150 drinks ordered. They’ll also hold an hourly raffle starting at 6:39 pm, with the grand prize being awarded at 10:39 pm.” On non-grand opening nights, Tuesdays and Thursdays mean $6 drink specials, and happy hour runs from Mon-Fri 4pm-9pm. Hours Mon-Wed 4pm-12am, Thu-Fri 4pm-2am, Sat 7pm-2am, Sun 5pm-12am. Hours may change, especially around baseball season.
