This urban version of a laid-back island bar draws die-hard dancers never ready to call it a night. Reggae, dub-step, and dancehall pound out of the sound system. Everyone sips on Red Stripe and boozy rum punches made with Jamaican spirits. If all that grooving gets your stomach rumbling (and trust us, it will), try the spicy empanada-like Jamaican patties at the downstairs deli, served after last call.
