Came to see some music and the music and sound were great. But the AC, either broken or non-existant. REALLY needed it. A heat wave came through and we were sweating all through the show. BUMMER>

A surprisingly fresh and local food and cocktail menu, positive vibes from a killer staff, and an eclectic mix of both big-name and local musicians! I always have an incredible experience at SOHO.

We had concert tickets for Chris Stapleton which was cancelled, we decided to check out SoHo to hear some live music to reduce our disappointment. Food was good, service was poor. Music was not My style but was very good.

This is the best place in town for eclectic, interesting music! The setting is intimate, and the food is good. My husband and I enjoy it for jazz, but we've gone to other presentations there as well.

Yes, they do take reservations, and the dress code is typical of Santa Barbara: casual.
