Ocean Club could be listed as a restaurant or a nightclub. This sleek, chic spot has redefined happy hour with its extended hours of slashed prices, excellent appetizer-only seafood menu, and ultra-cool ambience for the 30-and-under set. Galvanized steel counters, mahogany bars lined with shoyu bottles, linoleum tile floors, and pillars resembling pahu (Hawaiian drums) make for a wonderfully eclectic mix. Add DJs spinning hip-hop, and you get the picture. The menu of appetizers lives up to its "ultimate cocktail hour" claim, especially from 4:30 to 8pm nightly, when many items are slashed to half-price and the upbeat mood starts rolling. A happy-hour sampling: toothsome dips of spinach, artichoke, or crab served with tortilla chips, salsa, and sour cream; ahi tacos and sashimi for a pittance; and standards such as Buffalo wings and fried calamari. Note: No T-shirts, athletic wear, or beachwear (including rubber slippers) allowed, and the minimum age is 23.
