If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Brazilian tastes with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of tapas and cocktails at Loca Luna. This Groupon is not valid on Tuesdays.
Chef Daniel Chance's Brazilian-themed menu is known for its exotic drinks, Latin American tapas, lack of ghosts, and parties that keep kicking late into the night. Perk up palates with spicy fried calamari ($7) and skirt-steak skewers with sangria marinade ($7), or indulge in grilled chicken skewers, plantains and Cuban mojo sauce ($7). Fried sweet plantains with cinnamon condensed milk ($5) and grilled octopus, saffron potatoes, and sofrito vinaigrette ($7) add up to a mouthwatering evening of plate passing. Try the ceviche de mariscos with scallop, shrimp, avocado, tomato, lime, and tostones ($8) or a couple of grouper tacos with cabbage slaw and jalapeño aioli ($5). If you aren't interested in sharing, order Loca Luna's delicious paella ($23) with the fresh mint mojito ($7.50), which Creative Loafing calls the best in Atlanta.
Tapas are small plates designed for snacking and sharing over drinks and good company. Perfect for the crowd that doesn't like to choose, these culinary creations teach the importance of sharing to emotionally stunted adults and encourage conversation. Nibble, savor, and talk at Loca Luna until you're full of food, wine, and intoxicating discourse.

Loca Luna's chefs populate a menu of small plates embellished with compact Latin cuisine including tacos, tapas, ceviche, and paella. Chefs incorporate Latin ingredients such as plantains and mango into small portions of cold and hot tapas, which allows guests to order a number of small dishes to create a meal with as many permutations as a Choose Your Own Adventure story about a door factory. The lively bar keeps glasses filled until the wee hours, pouring drinks such as Loca Luna's famous original mojito, traditional South American caipirinhas, and a selection of domestic and imported beer.
Drawing loyal customers and celebrities alike, Loca Luna's spacious central dining room transports diners into a verdant, lively jungle setting with vibrant, leafy murals and tropical trees that delicately hang over tables and are known for routinely asking to sample the cuisine. The bar and lounge area serenades guests with live nightly tunes, and the restaurant's picturesque patio is perfect for practicing open-air ingestion. After dinner, customers can head to the dance floor to channel senses of Latin rhythm.
