The Bar Soma Experience

From inside Bar Soma, it is easy to forget that Hervey Bay’s Esplanade is just outside. The lighting, the bar chairs, the welcoming staff and the elegance, make it a place you will want to settle into for a while. The many bottles on the wall behind the bar, will grab at your gaze. A good portion of them are as unfamiliar as some of the ingredients on the cocktail and food menus but if you are going to have a great Bar Soma experience, you need to trust the guys there. They really do know what they are doing and they are more than happy to explain their menu.

If you are a foodie, you really should treat yourself to an afternoon at Bar Soma. What they are creating is something you won’t find elsewhere in our beautiful town. They are taking leaves from the books of classy big city bars and bringing that quality right to our doorstep in The Bay. They are then putting their Soma spin on it, to create a unique type of foodie heaven that has been missing from here until now.

For my husband Ben and I, places like this are the ones we really appreciate. Places that know what they are good at and they do it so well. Between Ben and Timo, the bartender, they share an interest in Irish whiskies and scotches, which helped Ben to pick some glasses of amber bliss from the wall that he thoroughly enjoyed. For me, in this place, I really can’t go past their cocktail menu. The flavours and textures they put together make for very special beverages, there is something for every palate.

If nothing on the cocktail menu or on their wall grabs you immediately, this is the sort if venue where you can talk to your bartender, simply tell them what you like. What you will get is a beverage that is tailored to your tastebuds, with an emphasis on your favourite flavours. Let me assure you that hitting nails on heads, when it comes to flavour, is what they do best. This doesn’t only apply to the drinks. Their food, which is a tapas style bar menu, is absolutely stunning. The breads melt in your mouth, the finger foods are perfectly done and paired with great house-made sauces, the meats are just so tender. Everything inside Bar Soma is done with a certain amount of finesse and care, which is making it one of our favorite places to be at. Soma is always adding and taking from their menus. They are always in search of other bottles to add to their wall, keeping each visit as exciting at the last.

We really would like to thank the guys at Bar Soma for making an experience like this an option for Hervey Bay residents and travellers alike. It is refreshing and it makes you feel alive.
