The Boca community, known worldwide for its early-bird specials and upscale lifestyles, hasn't offered drinkers and dancers too much in the way of late-night hard partying. That is, not until Baja Beach Club opened its doors last Friday night. Taking over the Club Boca location, Baja is open all hours (till 5 a.m.) from Wednesday to Saturday and has a somewhat modified energy from its "surf's up" feel of yesteryear as a Jersey Shore-type hot spot in the 1990s.
Best-known for serving the original body shots at its Fort Lauderdale location, Baja had eight venues around South Florida. None in Boca, though. Its spring-break spirit made it the place to go to lick whipped cream off buff, shirtless bartenders' nipples as they poured booze on their chests.
