Concierge.com's insider take:
Aura kicks off the evening with cocktails and gourmet tapas, segueing gently into what is arguably the hottest nightspot for grown-ups on the island. While it's definitely more of a lounge bar, by 1 am the dance floor is jumping. The music could be anything from funked-up disco and soul to new wave and jazz…just don't expect techno. The brass-colored polished concrete floors, gold organza drapes, and huge circular lounge beds in shades of peach and dusky rose create a decadent Arabian Nights vibe. Outside, an intimate terrace with horseshoe-shaped booths divided by jasmine, banana trees, and orange bougainvillea provides a tropical chill-out zone. Aura is a favorite VIP haunt: Sienna Miller and Rhys Ifans, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have all partied here along with superstar DJs like Paul Oakenfold and Danny Rampling.Tara Stevens
