Located directly across from the ocean, Javier's newest location is more opulent than ever. Walking into Javier's Cantina-through palm trees and fire-is like walking into another land. The dimly lit bar has a club vibe; the metal tree sculpture holding various tequilas over the bar is worth the trip in just to ogle. Of course, dining at a place like this can be pricey, but if you get to Javier's early, you can snag a seat on the patio and indulge in its happy hour.
