“Tapas Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Tasty small plates served up in a big, indoor/outdoor Caribbean-type environment. Great entertainment; we danced Salsa. And outstanding Mojitos! Interesting mix of Atlanta's folks all thrown together in the name of food and fun.

“Cinco de Mayo in Atlanta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

A party of 18 (including myself) came here to celebrate a birthday on Cinco de Mayo. Their menu is tapas. I ordered chicken skewers that come with plantain & chicken empanadas. They were both delicious. I had a margarita and it was great as well. We experienced delays with our server, but it was due to the large number of patrons. She provided excellent service. The atmosphere was nice. We were seated on the patio and enjoyed the breeze while listening to music coming from the dance floor. I will definitely return!

“Food, Drinks, Hookah dancing and free entry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I can't believe I haven't' been to this place before. Many people have recommended it over the years.

I came for the dancing but didn't realise how great of a weekend destination it can be.
There is a Spanish or Brazilian bands that plays every Friday. Then after 11ish, the band packs up for the DJ and they move the tales out the way for the dance floor.

You can order the tapas style food quite late and I was impressed with the grilled chicken skewer and quesadilla that I tried.

I also LOVE the fact they have hookah - especially since you cannot smoke cigarettes in there (although there is a nice cushy outdoor location with comfy couches for smokers).

With the music pumping mostly with the sounds of the Top 40 with a few Brazilian hits thrown in, I could see this being a great place for a regular Friday night destination, a place to throw a party or even just a nice dinner with your mates.
