We got there early, around 9pm and Sobe, the often overlooked restaurant next to Mad Rose, was still pretty sparesly populated. This gave us the chance to get good seats near the window with a great view of the amatuer performers.
The diverse crowd started picking up after midnight, with various singers including an office party full of suits, black guys singing country, white girls singing "Baby Got Back", a 1920s themed dress birthday party, and an older man channeling Sinatra. It was a blast watching all the different groups get up on stange and sing a wide variety of hits.
I definately recommend checking Sobe out late on weekend nights, usually after midnight when the crowd is larger. I would stick with bottled beer when at the bar, as their mixed drinks are very watered down drinks and their wine tasted off.

The first floor is the "tavern" which features a familiar bar and free for all tables. The upstairs "chophouse" has more dining tables that are available for reservations. Although their are different menus for each section, I was able to order from either one. Their appetizer breads came with a plate full of fun spreads and spicy veggies.

I'm really happy about Market Tavern's new look and menu, and look forward to frequenting them again soon.

Also, they are giving out a $2 off coupon for wraps after each purchase. I perfer the "Clarendon wrap", but am looking forward to trying their new "Arlington Rap" wrap soon.

|Plenty of steak and cheeses to go around late at night|
I stopped in late last night, and had to wait an unsually long time because there was an order a head of me for a dozen steak and cheeses. You know the food must be good here if local late night work crews frequent it.
I like their steak and cheese, althought my favorite is still the one from Ray's. I have yet to try their pizza, but it gets good reviews on Yelp.
