Boca’s Light and Soul
Boca’s centralized bar and communal tables seek to, as its website describes, “encourage gathering, conversation and a sense of neighborhood,” and that’s exactly what it does. Coming here with friends or family easily surrounded by you brings about a feeling of togetherness and warmth.
The pizza peel-decorated wall and spiral light fixtures hanging from the ceiling add a unique touch to the comforting feeling that Boca’s environment gives off.
