At Dada Restaurant, scents of contemporary American entrees waft through the intimate interior of the restored 1924 building that encapsulates comfortable, thematic dining rooms. Dada's menu displays all-natural blue-crab cakes ($26) and butternut-squash ravioli, which mingles with vine-ripe tomatoes and artichoke hearts in a flavor-compounding pool of thyme-infused cream ($18.50). The restaurant's chef, Bruce Feingold, expertly braises boneless short ribs ($19) and coats salmon with a dulcet force field of habanero-maple glaze ($21) to simultaneously electrify and pacify taste buds. Friendly servers navigate gingham drapes, plush chairs, and hardwood floors in Dada's cozy interior, and a tree-shaded veranda hosts spoon brandishers outside the eatery. Diners can sip local or imported vino from an extensive wine list ($7+) as they drink in live music and amble beneath the glow of twinkling lights hung from a sprawling banyan tree or ahead of the lights flashing on the heels of their shoes.
DeLux Nightclub is a swanky escape for night prowlers, who can dance to energetic music amid dim twinkles of color or sip cocktails in an eclectic outdoor lounge. The sleek bar attracts guests with beer ($5–$6) and refreshing mixed drinks ($7–$10), which ease mingling and enhance tongues' abilities to activate postage-stamp adhesive.

A 1,200-gallon aquarium greets diners as soon as they enter Tokyo Blue, an upscale Pan-Asian restaurant located inside the Ocean Manor. Situated on 200 feet of private beach, this elegant eatery features modern flourishes such as glowing glass columns, glossy blue floors, and a full bar illuminated by blue lights. Once the clock strikes 10:30 p.m., a DJ helps transform this chic space into a hopping nightclub, where patrons can refuel with a late-night menu or journey onto a second-story patio ideal for basking in the ocean air and high-fiving the occasional flying fish.
Against this trendy backdrop, Chef Mai—who earned his cooking chops at the popular Miami restaurant Nobu—simmers tenderloin in green curry, drizzles shichimi butter on baked Maine lobster, and pan-sears Chilean sea bass in 25-year aged balsamic and teriyaki sauce. Meanwhile, sushi chef Jo skillfully assembles 30 specialty rolls, including classics such as the California roll as well as eclectic mash-ups such as the Mexican roll with shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy mayo, cream cheese, and sesame seeds.

Follow up with a gourmet thin-crust pizza, such as the classic margarita pizza ($15) or the Bianca Quattro formaggio ($15), smothered in alfredo, mozzarella, feta, ricotta, and gorgonzola. After you have used your Groupon for a savory dinner, saddle up to the throwback club's fully-stocked bar and prepare yourself for a night of dancing and ice sculpting.
