DJs send heavy beats blasting through the darkened interior of Automatic Slim's sexy rock 'n' roll establishment, where waitresses in risqué garb keep drinks flowing until 5 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Neon lights set the bar aglow as patrons indulge in a wide selection of beer and cocktails, give the dance pole a workout, or claim a VIP table to discuss political science with their crew of new friends. Hosting theme nights and specials throughout the week, the bar promotes nights of revelry not seen since Bacchus's parents left the party meadow unlocked.
Each of the The Playwright Irish Pub’s three locations—two in Florida and one in Connecticut—embodies a warm atmosphere complemented by an Irish-inspired menu of food and drinks. Servers present tables and booths with bangers 'n' mash platters, 8-ounce burgers, or other hearty pub eats while bartenders pour steins of beer. The pub's two Florida locations feature expansive murals painted by Irish craftsmen to depict the glory of old-country Dublin and New Dublin on Mars.
Each of 8 oz. Burger Bar's signature patties is sculpted from a combination of humanely raised, hormone-free Black Angus sirloin, short rib, and chuck aged in a Himalayan salt-tiled meat locker. Go the traditional route with grass-fed Estancia beef ($9), or mix up the core of a layered masterpiece with free-range turkey or homemade veggie burgers ($8 each). All creations can be customized with freebies such as ketchup and onion, or garnished with extras like cheese, avocado, a fried egg, and more ($1–$2 extra). 8 oz. also offers a variety of sandwiches such as the short-rib grilled cheese with onion marmalade ($8), or opt for a butter lettuce and endive salad featuring walnut-bread croutons and vinaigrette (also humanely raised, $9). Accessorize your meal with sides ($4) such as fried pickles, brussel sprouts, bacon, sweet-potato chips, or truffled potato skins. View the menus here.
Beachfront dining and an expansive assortment of culinary delights create a commodious yet casual atmosphere as Nikki Beach sates eclectic appetites with a menu of fresh sushi, pizza, steaks, and more. An array of raw seafood, caviar, and succulent appetizer selections such as cornmeal-crusted calamari ($15) complement cocktails and sun-worshiping sessions, and gourmet pizzas created by Italian dough-diviner Enrico Sautto, such as the rocket and rocchetta pizza bubbling with rocchetta cheese and prosciutto crudo beneath fresh arugula, olive oil, and shaved parmesan ($16), satisfy followers of the latest circular-food diet craze.
