Known by its acronym, BOA—which could also indicate the snakeskin lampshades and barstool upholstery—is a great place to slink into for a rendezvous. The red walls, low lighting and relaxed atmosphere have also lured high profiles (Janeane Garofalo and Johnny Knoxville) seeking a lower one. The crowd grows younger as the night grows older.
