5 awesome spots for Millennials to hang out in Boca Raton

By Brandon Gross

Mizner Shops

This two-block hangout for restaurants, bars and quasi-upscale shopping is perfect for recent college grads. At 5pm pretty much every day, you can find a group of young business professionals sharing a Tsingtao at Mizner Asian Fusion restaurant Ka-Pow, speaking about how their alumni’s football team while bemoaning how much they miss college and how they should consider a move to Miami.

There are plenty of beautiful sights to see in the daytime too, but nighttime is when it really shines.

Office Depot Headquarters

If Millennials aren’t already utilizing their business degrees here as a career, chances are they sit in the parking lot in their Nissan Versa’s on Sundays. This five-story is, surprisingly, one of the sights in the region—it's often referred by the locals as "Parthenon South." 

Ben’s Deli

Every Millennial and 80-year-old geriatric named Fran Schwartz frequents this Jewish delicatessen. If you’re looking for a filling meal, look no further. This restaurant knows what it's doing..
