PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?No
Modeled after an Italian café and decked out in beach-flavored tones, this friendly spot serves as an Italian restaurant until about 10:00pm. After that, the tables get pushed to the side and the floor is cleared for the night crowd as this relatively small space magically transforms into one of the hautest of hot nightspots on the Palm Beach club scene. DJs spin ‘til the wee hours and the party gets going.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
If you’re here for dinner, keep it classy with an elegant blouse and slacks with flats. At night, show a bit more skin to fit with the club crowd with a low-cut top, while adding some heels and choice accessories to funk up your look.
GO HERE WITH
A group of friends; a dance partner
A mostly younger crowd of late-night imbibers, conversing couples, and hip nightlifers.
WHY WE LIKE IT
At night, there is no better place to watch people on “The Island” that is Palm Beach, and there is really no better place to dance, either.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
First daters should take the romance elsewhere–this spot gets much too crowded and much too loud to allow for any intimacy.
GOOD TO KNOW
Celebrity sightings are quite common here (the likes of Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, and Peyton Manning have all reportedly been spotted). The nightclub gets raring by 10:30pm, but the kitchen remains open until 2:00am nightly for anyone still looking to munch.
