French Disco

Foie gras, martinis, and club music at Dominique Bistro

It’s Friday night. You want a good meal and she wants to dance.

Don’t worry, we got this. Enter Dominique Bistro | Club,  a charming new lounge and eatery where dancing is dessert.

From your gigantic white quilted booth, you'll have a front-row seat to the scene's transformation from small, bright bistro with antique mirrors into a dance-happy lounge.

Fuel her up with a French Tart cocktail while you throw back the Dominique Martini and ask for an order of the classic terrine of foie gras to start.

The roasted duck with honey is a surefire winner, but so are the grilled sea bass and steak frites.

After dinner, try the brandy-infused Spanish coffee drink known as the Carajillo: Licor 43 on the rocks served with an espresso shot.

You’ll need that bolt of energy once the restaurant turns into a beat-dropping lounge with in-house DJ.

That's when things really start to get interesting.
