Mambo Grill changes hours to favor late night

SALISBURY — Mambo Grill and Tapas is moving toward a more “late night” feel, according to owner Ariella Sanchez.

“We’ve always loved that we’re the adult bar in town where people can come to hang out and relax,” Sanchez said Wednesday. “So we’re really looking forward to opening that up.”

Mambo will not have set closing hours on Friday and Saturday nights. From 10 p.m. on, the restaurant will turn into Mambo Lounge.

“We’re doing a very simple bar menu, but our bartenders have actually created a really incredible cocktail program,” Sanchez said. “So it’s really exciting.”

Mambo will also stop serving lunch Monday through Thursday.

Sanchez said that with the later weekend hours, staff time and effort needed to be redistributed.

“It’s a family business, so we’re there all the time. We want to make sure we’re giving the best quality service,” Sanchez said.

Sanchez said lunch will still be served on Fridays.

“That’s sort of our compromise for guests who work in town and want to come in for lunch,” Sanchez said.

Mambo’s new hours are 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Mambo Grill is at 122 E. Fisher St.
