Tropical-flavored hot spot in the posh Gold Coast neighborhood. – The Scene
Rowdy Gold Coasters, liberated professionals and partying tourists frequent this upbeat hangout and its popular patio. The bar refreshingly shelves the neighborhood's attitude, attracting instead jeans-attired Joes and Janes looking to drink. It's one of those places with crazy stuff on the walls and a Cuervo-bent--high-energy feel.
Massive, booze-heavy margaritas and rumrunners; those leaning toward the lighter side of debauchery may opt for Dos Equis amber. A Mexican food menu includes fresh, cilantro-laced guacamole, chicken soft tacos and rare-seared tuna sandwiches. Plenty of TVs (including on the patio) mean you won't miss the important game. Everyday tunes range from the Strokes to the White Stripes, but when DJs come--usually on weekends and promo nights--the vibe gets a tad more beat-heavy.
Great place – Went here with 3 old college buddies in from out of town and had a blast! We found a table and sat back and watched the scenery. We went on a Saturday night and you can barely move in this place, but you would not believe the beautiful women who come here. Bathrooms are all the way in the back of the place, so you have to worm your way through the throngs of people at the bar and dancing, but you really don't mind because of the clientele there. Great crowd!
holy jose cuervo! – This place rocks the Kasbah on a warm sunny day! With massive margaritas and little hotties promoting service with a smile, it is the no attitude, chill bar where my friends and I always seem to recruit some fine local talent. The service at the bar is fast and friendly as well. It seems these cats know the ingredients to a successful biz and happy customers.
