“El Sótano” means “the basement,” and that’s just where you’ll find this tiny bar and performance space. Most nights, some of the city’s best jazz and blues players hold down the scene, and on Tuesdays they host an open jam session. There’s a small menu of bar food and sandwiches. When there’s no live band, music is entirely played from vinyl. Upstairs from El Sótano is a separate bar and lounge space, El Solar. It’s open until 2am daily.
