Red velvet seating, dimmed amber lights, and intricate detail not seen since times long past…this is not the kind of place you get a table on impulse. Your eyes adjust and your soul is slowly taken on a comforting journey away from the outside world. The high backed benches and dark walnut tables feel inviting yet mysterious as you slowly take in the romantic atmosphere. Delicate jazz music fills your ears while the soft glow of the bar calls to you with the gentle seduction of a siren’s song. This is not what you expected…this is Sidebar…everything you never knew you always wanted.

Sidebar is definitely a place to visit for date night or special occasions. We need more places like this in the RGV if your tired of going to same places give this place a try! Great atmosphere and drinks!

It was exactly how they said it would be in all media I found prior to going. Laid back and elegant. I would love to go back on a weekend to feel the atmosphere with a room full of well dressed patrons, enjoying the wonderful food and music.

SideBar is more than just a restaurant or bar, it’s an experience! From the moment you open the front doors you’re immediately greeted by a professional staff member so well versed in the history of the building and it’s origins. You’re taken down a hallway and shown a series of elegant conference rooms (available to the public) and shown a bit of history throughout each room. There are additional rooms across with towering glass walls and provide a large city museum-esque experience. These room showcased art pieces from a recent art exhibit and they have a private watch vendor located inside for a personal and private purchasing experience.
Just absolute class!!! You continue to walk toward the end of the hallway and turn to see the breathtaking, speakeasy inspired dinning area. From antique, historical decor to large vivid paintings displayed throughout the dinning area. Words cannot do any justice when describing the experience all patrons will have at SideBar. My wife and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary this past weekend at SideBar and it will be a memory we will cherish for the rest our lives.

The first time I made a reservation they told me no shorts are allowed and I had to reschedule. When we went I saw two people (men) in shorts. That was so disappointing. Clearly it is who you know. There was a big party and it got really loud. I would not return to this place.

It's unfortunate that this happened. We've modified the dress code to ready "We reserve the right to enforce the dress code" rather than just draw a line in the sand. We do appreciate your business and if you ever decide to return look for me on Wednesday or Thursday and we can sit down and discuss this in person. Allow us to earn your remaining 3 stars as we strive to make everyone's visit 5 star. "Beauty and positivity can be found in every situation as long as we are willing to see it." RWP

The atmosphere is unique. The food was excellent and tasty, and not a overwhelming portion. Perfect. The service was attentive but not overbearing. There when you need them but at a distance when you don’t. Tastefully decorated. Dr. Puig has addressed every detail personally and hit the mark! If you are looking for service, great food, and a great atmosphere, Sidebar is the place.

I would not recommend one of the tables for 4 where everyone sits next to each other. Too hard to chat. We had to move as the live jazz music and that seating arrangement was awkward. But this aside.....it is fantastic and great for Edinburg.

This place is great, apart from the aestheticaly pleasing interior, the food was even more pleasing. I highly reccommend for anyone wanting to unwind and check out of life for a bit.
