Ask any USC student where they’re spending the weekend, and there’s a good chance they’ll tell you Bacaro. The tapas are solid and affordable, but the real highlights are the drinks deals. For $20, you can opt for the “open bar,” where you can down unlimited sangria and champagne for 90 minutes. So you can imagine what this place is like towards closing. They also do weekend boozy brunches if you want to continue your Friday night revelry into daylight hours. If this wasn’t already abundantly clear: this place will be filled with college students no matter when you go.
