One great area to go is Espanola Way Village. Located in the Art Deco Districts of the city, it was built after Mediterranean examples. In this unique architectural quarter, tourists as well as locals meet for shopping, dining or just strolling around. (www.myespanolaway.com)
Another really good spot is Mango’s Tropical Café, which is located on Ocean Drive. This Latin American Dance Club/Bar is famous for its good music, dancers and drinks. Unfortunately, the cover was $20, but we had a lot of fun there and stayed longer than we should have.
