One of the fashionable clubs in Miami, Russian models like to dance on the tables here, Tantra has been discovered. This is the place where you go for an overpriced but tasty dinner and later as many cocktails that you can drink without falling down on the grass floor.
Like Pearl, Tantra turns into a full-on party scene after pudding, as guests get up from their tables and head towards the turf-covered bar area. The lanterns in the dining room are, however, causing concern among Asian clients who recognize them as funeral lamps.
Whatever the cultural mix-up, Monday nights at Tantra are now etched into the Miami socialite calendar and draw the same crowd as the Metro bar on Tuesdays.
Drinks at Tantra, however, are a little more raucous as girls dance on any surface they can find that is not occupied by cocktails and the cramped bar area fills to the brim while couples are turned away by the bouncers outside.
