This historic Delray Beach house has over the years become South Florida's de facto hangout for the hip, the eclectic, the tattooed, and the wacky. Its nightly live music, entertainment, magic shows, and psychic blowouts are upstaged only by the place's almost supernal level of texture. From the gravel-lined front yard with tiki torches and tree-house-inspired tables to the Dali-esque artwork hanging on the old plaster walls, Dada is thick with visual flavor. What comes out of the kitchen is less inspiring. Caprese salad, bluefin tuna tartare, grilled Brie, meat loaf -- much of the menu reads like it's stuck in the '90s. Nightly specials can be costly and include the same mashed potatoes and vegetables that accompany every plate. Still, the hand-muddled mojitos are killer, and the scene is still a blast after all these years.
