Marv Says: Bambara is a restaurant and hotel bar found in the downtown Hotel Monaco. Fun seating is available around the back side of the bar, and I strongly recommend sitting there. It’s a bit quieter and no contention for the bartender’s time. While pricey, the cocktails offered were very good. All of the options we tried seemed to be winners. I highly recommend this as a good sport for entertaining out of town visitors. On the server’s recommendation I enjoyed a Primavera.
