It's not the drinks that make you want to hang around at Satoro Restaurant & Lounge. Not that there's anything wrong with them; the bartenders pour a standard bartending-school-style drink. Satoro's charm comes through once the drink is in your hands and you get to take in the atmosphere. A warm orange glow covers the chic restaurant, comfortable and stylish ultramodern furniture lines the bar, and tables and couches line the lounge area in the back. To top off the whole experience, order a couple of reasonably priced tapas (many for under $10) from the jovial waiters and sink into your chair before the live music kicks off.
Now closed: Alligator Alley — one of the area's best juke joints — called it quits with a final concert blowout last Saturday.
