A typical evening at this dimly lit Euro hang starts at the bar, moves to a table for an Italian meal and ends up back at (or more likely on) the bar. The throbbing music’s volume climbs as the night progresses, prompting otherwise classy patrons to transform into raging party animals. Sunday nights, belly and Brazilian dancers fuel the fun, which often lasts until daybreak.
