With so many restaurants in town how do you choose one that deliver on all of your expectations? The Mark, a steak and seafood restaurant in downtown Bakersfield, offers a new option to those that like their dinner with a little swinging on the side.
Since its soft opening in August 2012 The Mark treats their diners to a posh dining experience with a full bar area, VIP upstairs loft, and a dance floor next to the live band. Every Friday and Saturday night from 6:00 – 11:00 pm you can find the second dining area full of laughter and swaying hips as the live band puts on a show.
“Where in Bakersfield can you find dinner and dancing in one place? This restaurant is our favorite date night location,” Sheina Johnson, 30, said.
Currently The Mark rotates its live band, which include the smooth sounds of Mr. Trimble and the Jazz Connection both local artists. The music selection is diverse and offers diners the chance to dance to jazz, swing, oldies and contemporary music.
“It’s something new all the time,” Everardo Vivero, 27, said. “My girlfriend and I can find ourselves dancing to Michael Jackson one minute and full on swing the next.”
The dance floor and live band are located in a second dining room with an accompanying full bar where they serve an extensive wine and cocktail list. The atmosphere is comfortable with a lounge feel. You can dine, drink or relax on the leather couches waiting for your favorite song to come on.
