Greek music—sometimes live—sets the tone at warm Aquarella: drop by for a drink or tuck into a large gourmet menu of meaty offerings Friday and Saturday nights. Later at night, you can still get finger food, and some center tables might be removed to make room for dancing and, even better, for some legendary “flower wars” among happy club goers. Smart dress is strongly recommended. (Source: )
