Valentine’s Day at the Capitol Club

Adorned with velvet curtains, satin throw pillows, and candles, the Capitol Club exudes a casual yet sexy Mediterranean vibe fit for this special day of the year. It’s the place to be for intimate couples, drunken brides-to-be, musicians, and even belly-dancing troupes. During happy hour (5-9 nightly, all day Sunday), the bar pours $3 wells and beer, plus $4 house-made sangria. You can also nibble on $5 Spanish tapas, featuring mussels, calamari, and roasted potatoes. (If you feel especially indulgent, order the breaded, deep-fried bacon with—wait for it—chocolate-chipotle dipping sauce.)ERIKA HOBART
