From the cushioned walls to the shiny vinyl ottomans, everything at Helix is white. Colored lights constantly transform the room, and loud party music (a lot of Britney Spears) has many dancing after a few $10-to-$13 martinis. Despite the trendy decor, the staff and crowd are generally unpretentious. Happy hour is Tuesday through Sunday 5 to 8 and all night Monday, with half-price burgers, beers, and signature “pajama party” cocktails made with Stoli Raz, Sprite, lime juice, and a splash of Champagne.
