You and your girlfriends were gonna book a tropical getaway as soon as you each lost five pounds.

Since no one's mentioned their progress since, escape instead to a fun, island vibes night out at She’s Not Here, the Pacific Asian cocktail bar and kitchen opening tonight in the 2ND Street District. The head-swiveling space features fantastical murals throughout and wallpaper covered with birds of paradise and gold palm fronds. Leather couches and rattan furniture topped with pineapple candles create a casual lounge environment for sipping mezcal cocktails like the Smoke. Dine at a high top to eyeball the open-concept kitchen, or sit in the main dining area under the enchanting Polynesian princess. The inventive menu excites, with plates like the hot spot's tempura-style take on traditional fish and chips served with pickled apples—trust us, it's delicious—citrus salad with charred feta, Galbi pork ribs and spoons of coconut ice cream. 

The flower you'll swipe from your drink to put in your hair will be the vacay you haven't gone on all summer.
