Cafe Asia, the latest restaurant to open in the Power Plant Live! complex, is now also a nightclub. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays around 10:30 p.m. the dinner lights go down, the laser lights come on and the tables are pushed back to make room for dancing. (Don't worry; if your table is on the dance floor and you're still chowing down on pad thai at 10:30, you won't be tipped out of your chair.) Perched high above the smooth wooden dance floor is a pagoda-style booth where local DJs spin progressive, house and Latin beats.

The lights are dim. The music is playing. People chat among themselves while sipping cocktails. It's the perfect setting to grab your partner and sway to the beat on the dance floor. Except, wait. There's dancing, but not necessarily with a partner. This is a world where it's not only socially acceptable to get on the dance floor sans partner, it's downright cool.
