Concierge.com's insider take:
This all-purpose bar, café, and late-night discotheque offers a sophisticated take on the familiar cram-them-in-until-somebody-faints ethos of most B.A. nightclubs. At Tuesday night's Soirée Française, which ramps up with a soothing Francophilic soundtrack before shifting into electronica mode, the hip crowd drapes itself around the outsize aqua-blue bar for pastis cocktails and then floods the dance floor until all hours.
Open Mondays through Saturdays.
