Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of refined fare and delicious drinks at Shish Lounge in West Hartford. Today's Groupon must be presented to your server by 9 p.m. to be valid, and Groupons presented before 7 p.m. garner a complimentary order of wings or Margarita flatbread. Shish Lounge is only open Thursday through Sunday from 5 p.m. until late.

Combining vibrant nightlife with thoughtfully conceived cuisine, Shish Lounge cures cravings with a sophisticated, globally inspired menu. Give your mouth a tongue hazing with spicy chicken wraps with ranch dipping sauce and chopped salad ($9), or kick things off with a shrimp cocktail ($9), cousin of the far-less-popular squid and tonic. Flatbreads become 2-D flavor spectacles with combinations such as figs with goat cheese ($7) and seasonal fruit with brie ($8). Chicken Caesar salad ($10) tweaks convention with a marinated chicken kebab, and pita burgers and chicken pita burgers ($9 each) provide the handheld convenience of a sandwich while reducing our reliance on foreign buns. Indecisive diners can also opt for the sampler platter ($15), which covers all appetite contingencies with a mix of chicken wings, crab cakes, hummus, pita chips, and calamari.

The full bar offers a drink menu featuring clever cocktails ($8–$10) and champagne by the glass ($8–$22) that makes it possible to enjoy Shish Lounge's palate-pleasing sensibilities without the inconvenience of chewing. Top-notch DJs and lively music power a party atmosphere matching that of the hippest discotheques on the International Space Station.

Dine-in only.

Shish Restaurant & Lounge

A night of dinner, drinks, and dancing doesn't always have to involve three different destinations. At Shish Restaurant & Lounge, visitors can do all three, seamlessly. While they cozy up on a leather sofa, the wait staff ferries Middle-Eastern cuisine such as small plates of baba ghanoush and grape leaves as well as flatbreads decorated with lamb, hallumi, and olives. From the bar, servers transport nine signature cocktails, flutes of seven types of champagne, and draft and bottled beers to lounging diners as they watch other cut a rug on the giant dance floor. Whether visiting on swing-dance Wednesdays, Latin Thursdays, or DJ-party Fridays, there is always something to watch.
