Peanut Island Sports Bar & Grill pairs its traditional pub menu with an assortment of more than 50 bottled and 10 draft beers. Dining duos or quartets can kick-start their meals by feasting on one other's eye contact or sharing an appetizer such as the pan-seared, Cajun-rubbed ahi tuna, which floats down throats with spicy asian mustard, lemon butter, and broccoli slaw. Garnished in lettuce, tomato, onion and tartar sauce, grilled or blackened dolphin arrives in sandwich or wrap form, ready to appease entree-ready palates. Mandibles can also munch on lightly fried half-pound cheeseburgers, crowned in oozing american or swiss and accompanied by fries, tater tots or broccoli slaw. Peanut Island Grill brandishes beers such as Yuengling and Stella Artois available by the bottle, cup, or pitcher; well drinks; and sodas great for parched throats or bubbly face wash. Patrons redeeming Groupons Monday–Thursday receive a complimentary dessert with their meals.

The Fijian expression “Bula!,” a salute to health and happiness, can be heard reverberating within the earth-toned walls of Kavasutratu as visitors take shots of kava served in coconut shells. Before first tastes, the bartending owners of Kavasutratu edify sippers on the history of the refreshing drink, which derives from a root found in the Pacific and is known for its deeply calming qualities. The lounge’s breezy, beach-theme setting mimics kava’s tranquilizing effects with its bamboo bar, dim lighting, and plentiful decorative greenery to nap under. Ears lose themselves in the soothing music that emanates from Kavasutratu’s sound system, and large, flat-screen TVs flash a variety of abstract visuals.

It's easy to both start and end a night at Blue Martini. During the early hours of the evening, guests can catch the last rays of sun on the patio as they dine on light fare such as fruit-and-cheese plates and flatbread pizzas. This lightness is necessary, because once the sun goes down, guests have to be light on their feet as the lounge turns into a full-on dance party. From then until closing time, guests can keep their energy up with glasses of wine or one of the house's 42 signature cocktails. The bartenders shake, stir, and blend together ingredients to make these drinks, which range from skinny-raspberry mojitos that contain less than 250 calories to the lightly flavored key-lime-pie martini or cucumber lemonade.
Dixie Grill and Bar's uniquely embellished interior dons vintage trinkets and memorabilia for diners to feast their eyes on as they delve into a menu of classic American eats. Couples can jumpstart gustatory glands by sharing an appetizer of deep-fried mozzarella served with house-made marinara sauce ($7.95). Muting belly bellows more effectively than a swiftly thrown leather shoe, the grilled cheeseburger wedges a half-pound of Angus beef slathered in barbecue sauce, onion straws, bacon, and cheddar cheese between two grilled cheese sandwiches ($11.95). Thaw out a frozen palate with the spicy fire burger smothered in jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and an optional coating of house-made fire sauce ($9.95). The Jack Daniels sauce chicken entree wins over tasters with two grilled chicken breasts slathered in a signature whiskey glaze ($13.95), while the Key West shrimp sports a fresh coat of crispy-sweet coconut batter ($14.95).
The hookah's natural habitat is not a nightclub with crashing music and empty drinks slamming against tables. The hookah experience, according to Kimm Smith of Hookah House, should be unrushed and mellow. "It's very meditative," she says, "and should be shared with people you care about." This was the atmosphere in which co-owner Zo spent his childhood in Algeria, where people would spend long hours gathering with friends and families in hookah lounges. He and his Bostonian wife, Michelle, wanted to bring that aspect of Algerian culture to the United States, both to spread a feeling of community and as an homage to the marriage of their distinct backgrounds.
As the fruit-tinged smoke of shisha rises from between murmuring visitors, it passes rich fabrics, which drape the exposed-brick walls, and bright lanterns dangling from a marigold ceiling. Stories seem to overflow from the furniture and textiles, gathered during the couple’s travels in Algeria or preserved from Zo's former life as a sommelier in Paris. This is where patrons linger, resting shoeless feet on bright cushions and pillows as they converse or check email on the free wireless internet. Atop inlaid tables, servers place Turkish coffee, house blends of Moroccan tea, and small plates of Mediterranean-inspired dishes.
On some weekend evenings, live jazz stirs guests to twist among tendrils of smoke before a DJ steps up to spin a range of music, from Earth, Wind & Fire to Jimi Hendrix. Belly dancers, with bells and scarves for all to borrow, demonstrate to patrons how to pass lie-detector tests with just their hips. A psychic-in-residence reads coffee grounds most nights, translating the earthy onyx shapes into predictions about the drinker's future.
