With leafy trees, running water and other island decor, this hangout on top of the Lodge Bar in Power Plant Live is an escape from the crush of bar- and club-goers below.

Where --34 Market Place, above the Lodge Bar in Power Plant Live

Notable --A waterfall flows down from the ceiling, and tiki torches help light the Caribbean-influenced surroundings. There's also a four-hole mini-golf course you can play for free inside the building.

Vibe --On a recent Saturday night, the outside area was laid-back and comfortably full, but the indoor mini-golf course was empty, with a DJ spinning loud hip-hop from two to three years ago.

Crowd --Generally more people in their 20s than 30s

What to wear --Dress as if you're going out to a college bar: designer jeans, button-downs and the like.

Music --Outside, you might hear reggae or other island music, but in the mini-golf section, it's more top 40.
